    Okay.. this has 2 parts. Part 1:

    Calm Conservatism Lives At The Values Voter Summit

    Eric Cantor, the dynamic Republican House Whip who's become a leading voice against President Obama's economic policies, stands before a crowd of around a thousand conservatives and tells them America will soon be paying a billion dollars every day in debt service, and that our "credit card company" is none other than Communist China.

    The crowd gives a worried murmur: "Oooh." No one shouts.

    This seems like non sequitur these days, after a summer in which crowds of angry tea partiers waved signs calling President Obama a Fascist, a Communist, a Marxist, and a Kenyan; in which the riled up and fearful screamed in the faces of their elected legislators at town hall meetings; in which Joe Wilson shouted "You lie!"; and in which a man's finger actually got bitten off (by a liberal).

    But it's not. Welcome to the 2009 Values Voter Summit, hosted by the Family Research Council, one of the nation's most prominent organizations for social, religious conservatives, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in the Washington DC's residential Woodley Park.

    Mainstream conservatism still exists, despite the prominence to which the right's fringe elements have ascended since Obama took office. And sometimes it takes a mainstream conservative conference in Washington, DC to remind one that, while the infrastucture of conservative interest groups has engaged in heavy flirtation--some would say an outright love affair--with the passion of the protesters, dignified gatherings in hotel ballrooms are still its bread and butter.

    There's more at the source, but you get the gist. Then in the comments I found a link about the current Values Voter Conference here in DC. I thought the commenter was joking... but they weren't:


    Those are real breakout session titles. WTF! Seriously, go to the site and read this crap on the agenda for Sat. starting at 3:15. I can't even pick which one pisses me off the most. These take the cake for right now:

    THE NEW MASCULINITY - CONGRESSIONAL A
    Dr. Pat Fagan, Senior Fellow and Director, Center for Family and Religion, FRC; Michael Schwartz, Chief of Staff, Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.); Dr. Matthew Spalding, Director, B. Kenneth Simon Center for Studies, The Heritage Foundation
    Feminism has wreaked havoc on marriage, women, children and men. It is time to redress the disorder it has wrought and that must start with getting the principles and ideals for a new "masculinism" right. Such a "masculinism" will have its dovetailing counterpart in a new "feminism" for they mutually define each other and, in nature, are meant to be complementary. This panel will begin this exploration.

    THUGOCRACY - FIGHTING THE VAST LEFT WING CONSPIRACY - EMPIRE ROOM
    Terry Jeffrey, Editor, CNSNews.com; Michael Barone*
    "Hate crime" legislation, removal of conscience protections for health care workers, the Fairness Doctrine, groups like ACORN intimidating voters and committing voter fraud, "Card Check" legislation to create a permanent majority - President Obama and the Democratic Party is doing all it can to suppress free speech that they disagree with and that threatens their plans for a "permanent majority" in power. Political pundit Michael Barone calls it a "thugocracy" and "Gangster Government," how real is this threat and how can we fight it?

    MARRIAGE: WHY IT'S WORTH DEFENDING AND HOW REDEFINING IT THREATENS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY - DIPLOMAT ROOM
    Charles Donovan, Senior Research Fellow, The Heritage Foundation; Thomas Messner, Visiting Fellow; The Heritage Foundation; Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Founder and President, Ruth Institute
    Redefining marriage poses serious threats to the religious liberties of people who continue to believe that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. This understanding of marriage is an important religious belief for many Americans, but the freedom to express it will come under growing pressure as courts, public officials, and private institutions come to regard the traditional understanding of marriage as a form of irrational prejudice that should be purged from public life. This briefing will focus on policy and legal developments, as well as how to communicate the link between marriage and religious liberty.

    Seriously?! This is what they are being fed? I knew it was bad but I didn't realize it was that bad. Shaeffer is so right- this is the fifth column of insanity. Particularly if this is supposedly MAINSTREAM conservatism.

    With a few exceptions (David Frum, Kathleen Parker) there is no difference between mainstream conservativism and the crazies.
