Trying to wrap our heads around the broad spectrum of opinions and ideologies writ large across the head gear, lapels and promotional materials being toted around the latest Conservative Political Action Conference proved to be a mind scrambler.
Here’s what we took away from the opening day of the philosophical free-for-all:
At least one industrious entrepreneur has taken President Barack Obama’s famously twisted words to heart.
Laugh with them. Laugh at them. It’s all the same as long as the money keeps rolling in.
Can’t say they think too highly of the House minority leader.
Some really respect modern rabble-rousers.
Others would prefer to simply travel back in time.
For a supposedly uptight group, Republicans sure seem to appreciate the art of relaxation.
The majority appears to lean more libertarian than anything else (save for the closet hippie keeping former Rep. Dennis Kucinich company)
A minority is holding out hope things will get even darker before the dawn. (We can dig it.)
A few visionaries believe the entire country is going to pot. (And that is, apparently, a good thing.)
You heard it here first: Michael Bay 2016.
