So I stopped by CPAC last night, picked up my blogger pass, roamed the exhibit hall where I got some sweet mock Ray-Bans from Google, and had to sit through some ranting by Herman Cain to see the one remotely attractive speaker of the weekend: Rand Paul.

On the top, a button for sale in the exhibit hall: The Republican Party must unite or die. At this point it’s a weird coalition which is held together only by opposition to the slightly bigger domestic government advocated by Democrats/Obama’s desire to wage wars of aggression with our buddies in NATO rather than by ourselves.
