CPAC: Come for the crazy, stay for the party Published: March 7, 2014

Ever been to a wedding or family reunion where the event starts out reasonably genteel, then, as the hours roll by and the attendees start to get tired and/or drunk, things start to get weirder and rowdier? The opening day of CPAC was a lot like that, reports the Daily Beast. Plus firearms.

The one thing that may have tickled the crowd more than Democrat-bashing was when Mitch McConnell showed up on stage brandishing a rifle. (It was a gift for colleague Tom Coburn, who is retiring this year because of health problems.)

The crowd was delighted. Alas, that was pretty much all that McConnell did that delighted them.
