High times at the annual meeting of right-wingers known as the Conservative Political Action Committee. First, Donald Rumsfeld - getting his "Defender of the Constitution" Award - and Dick Cheney - heckled as "murdering scum"- got booed. Then the "triumphant" appearance of Youth for Western Civilization (YWC), the next generation's white supremacists, "passionately opposed to multiculturalism." The right sure knows how to throw a party. More on YWC, classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, here.

“Diversity can be good in moderation... Most Americans don’t mind a little ethnic food, some Asian math whizzes, or a few Mariachi dancers — as long as these trends do not overwhelm the dominant culture.” -  Marcus Epstein
