“Do you remember the bar scene in ‘Star Wars,’ with all those wild-eyed creatures from every part of the solar system?” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked at the beginning of Thursday’s “Hardball.”
“Well, today here in Washington, the whole tapestry of weirdness was reenacted at the annual convention of something called CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Committee.
“Well, actually, ‘conservative’ doesn’t quite capture this out-of-this-world jamboree,” Matthews continued. “At CPAC, it’s the far-out sharing space with the even further out, a place for the crazy car to fill up with the usual suspects — Cruz and Paul and Rubio and Bobby Jindal — while gassing up with the craziest bunch of ideas since Rick ‘Oops’ Perry couldn’t remember that list of government agencies he wanted to kill…”
Taking his cue from Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, Matthews also tied conservatives to some of their wealthy supporters:
“It was pure Koch brothers populism being sold out there today, words and phrases crafted to heat up the peanut gallery, translating to cold cash for the oil patch billionaires who approved the script.”
