Sarah Palin Supports GOProud’s Attendance At CPAC (I Think)
From the same interview I wrote about yesterday, here’s Sarah Palin responding to a question about GOProud’s attendance at CPAC this year:
Well, I’ve never attended a CPAC conference ever so I was a little taken aback this go around when I couldn’t make it to this one either and then there was a speculation well I either agree or disagree with some of the groups or issues that CPAC is discussing. It really is a matter of time for me.
But when it comes to and David, perhaps what it is that you’re suggesting in the question is should the GOP, should conservatives not reach out to others, not participate in events or forums that perhaps are rising within those forums are issues that maybe we don’t personally agree with? And I say no, it’s like you being on a panel shoot, with a bunch of the liberal folks whom you have been on and you provide good information and balance, and you allow for healthy debate, which is needed in order for people to gather information and make up their own minds about issues.
I look at participation in an event like CPAC or any other event, along, or kind of in that same vein as the more information that people have the better
Some on the right, such as Andrew Brietbart, are saying this morning that this means that Palin supports GOProud’s attendance at CPAC. Maybe it does. When you’re dealing with a mish-mosh of words that seem like they were randomly thrown together, it’s really hard to tell.
Nonetheless, if Palin really is saying that GOProud should be allowed to attend CPAC and that boycotting the meeting because of their attendance is the wrong approach then I’ve got to say that I agree with Sarah Palin.
Yea, I know, stop the presses on that one.
