Ace of Spades shows a side of stability and honesty:

Agita Alert: Cliff Kincaid Suggests Obama Not Born in US to Applause from CPAC
It's the kind of throwaway line guaranteed to get laughs and applause.

But is it worth it?

Nope. We conservatives are already alienated from the rest of the country by about a 65/35 split on a lot of critical issues. We're already marginalized. We really don't have to increase the marginalization by pushing silly nits like this.

There are a lot of issues we can potentially win on -- but this ain't one of them. I view this as unserious stuff when we'e got to be deadly serious indeed.

John Bolton's Mustache of White Bushy Justice was unable to control its host organism and let out a joke about Chicago being nuked that played well in the hall but isn't exactly politic.

This stuff isn't outrageous or worthy of condemnation. But we just got our asses kicked big time and really should be focusing like lasers on the real, live issues.
But just when I'm starting to think Ace and I might have some points of understanding, he drops this:

Gingrich hosted a roundtable briefing for bloggers this morning and was stressing that, particularly in this environment, we push issues we're already pretty much winning on, such as Drill Baby Drill and cutting business taxes. More of that, less of the cheap and ultimately counterpoductive gags.
Less "cheap" and more "Drill Baby Drill?" I don't understand these people at all.
