A Whiter Shade Of Fail™

Cpac is a hippening, a hoppining and a happining.


The first time I saw this image (thanks Lime Rickey) my initial response was:

When you have to try that hard…….You are doing, whatever it is, wrong.

Talk about “A whiter shade of Fail™”…..

The guy on the right seems like a favorite of the photographers and seems very happy to oblige…The sweatband is simply precious, though I am not sure what winger gang sign is represented by the “feel my bicep” maneuver, but it does seem like his go to move.


And here he is just kickin’ it old school. I gotta say I am surprised he kept the business shoes rather than go for some flag ones, and the socks…I guess the message is a mullet like “Party up top, business downstairs”


I seem to remember something from cub/boyscouts about treating the flag with proper respect:

The flag should not be used as “wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery”, or for covering a speaker’s desk, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general (exception for coffins). Bunting of blue, white and red stripes is available for these purposes. The blue stripe of the bunting should be on the top.[6]

Yeah that sounds about right.


It wouldn’t be a proper CPAC post without giving a shout out to the tri-corn contingent.


Feel free to drop any ridiculous images of conservative bufoonery that you may encounter out in the wild.

I’m old enough to remember when wearing the flag as an article of clothing was considered disrespectful and unpatriotic.


I’m old enough to remember that Abbie was arrested for wearing a shirt like that http://badassdigest.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/abbie-hoffman2.jpg


I’m old enough to to remember when cosplay was just something that comic enthusiasts did at their little conventions.


Not sure why you got held up in moderation tsam.

I was initially introduced to the notion of cosplay by the local “Society of Creative Anachronism”……But yeah, like everything else the Conservatives are doing it wrong.


If you look at your history the flag belongs to them. They can do whatever they want with and to it. See the buffoon, above.

But just let you or me try. Just try.


European liberalism, on the other hand — think Locke and Mill – wanted to widen the space within which citizens might pursue their own ends without interference from society or the state. Its chief value, accordingly, was individual liberty.


The fact is, laugh it up, liberals. There will you find nothing funny about a patroit who is well armed opposing you in teh valley of freedom of speach, which in the marketplace of ideals trumps socailest every time


The valley of the freedom of speech. Is that what try they call free speech zones these days?


I’m old enough to remember when Original Fake Gary showed up.

Comrade Rutherford

When Abbey Hoffman made a shirt out of the US Flag Conservatives wanted to kill him for defacing the flag. Now Conservatives are the singe largest group of Americans that deface the flag.
