That CPAC gathering should give comics a lot of material and the rest of us much cause for concern. So many imposters, all in one room, acting as if they are tribunes of the people and working class heroes. They mocked the Ivy Leagues schools, which they attended, paid homage to their grand leader, and paraded themselves as defenders of the constitution and liberty. Not a word was uttered about the storming of the capital, a storming that they incited and cheered on. The convention was capped off by the appearance and never ending speech of an ex-president, who announced his hit list, castigated the Biden administration, and repeated, despite advice from his aides, that he won the election. It was a toxic brew of unhinged white male, upper crust masculinity. It was at once laughable, frightening, and anti-American.
