CPAC Recap, Day One

So today was the first day of CPAC.  I wasn’t there for most of it, and if you listened to tonight’s KaibCast, you know that I saw a bunch of “famous” people.  You also know that I am strongly supportive of GOProud’s participation at the conference.  I want to make myself clear, because what I said during The KaibCast might be misinterpreted.  I don’t think that opponents of same-sex marriage are bigoted.

Just the people who use the term “homosexual agenda” when describing GOProud’s participation in CPAC.  “Homosexual agenda” implies that some nefarious plot exists to turn everyone at CPAC gay (or something like that).  Anyway, it makes GOProud sound like a menacing organization.  That is not the case, and those that strongly oppose GOProud’s participation need to grow up and meet people from the real world who don’t fit into their cookie cutter vision of the world.  Gay conservatives are conservatives, too.

Anyway, I’ll be at CPAC all day Friday and Saturday and will host “The KaibCast” live from CPAC both days.  I expect to do the show at 6 PM both days, but you never know.  The key-note speech on Saturday isn’t until 5:30 PM (if they stay on schedule) so I might be pushing that back to 6:30.

So Mubarak Isn’t Really Stepping Down

This is my last post about Egypt for a while.  Mubarak isn’t really stepping down and now there will probably be more violence but I don’t give a shit anymore about that.

Today was day one of CPAC (I caught the last two hours).  I’ll be there all day tomorrow and Saturday.

Mubarak to Step Down

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak is expected to step down shortly.  Tonight (Egypt time), Mr. Mubarak will address his nation and announce that the Egyptian military will take control of the country until an election can be held.

This is probably the best way forward.  It keeps Islamists from talking control of the country and it gives Egyptians time to liberalize (establish free press, etc.).  This will go a long way towards guaranteeing a free and fair election.
