Civil Discourse

The conservatives are having their annual convention in Washington this weekend. There’s bound to be serious discussion about their agenda, but at least one event sounds more like a kiddie birthday party. Participants be invited to take a whack at Speaker Nancy Pelosi and punch out Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Well, not literally.

There will be a conservative-themed party Friday evening not sponsored by CPAC, where guests will have the opportunity to whack a Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) piñata.

Three famous D.C. residents will be taking a turn as guest “whackers” at the piñata during the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which starts on Thursday. The guest “whackers” will be at the party, to be held at George in Georgetown.

Mary Christopher, outreach coordinator for CivicForumPAC, said the Pelosi piñata will be filled with favorite Pelosi sayings, bills and candy. The party hopes to invite the well-known D.C. residents to smash the piñata first, before others in attendance will be invited to try to take the Speaker down.

“We’re hoping to have the females whack the piñata and males try their hand at a Harry Reid punching bag,” Christopher said.

All in good fun, I’m sure, just blowing off steam and trying to piss off the liberals. I’m sure they don’t mean to imply that violent outbursts are the way to solve our problems.
