What was CPAC thinking?

The Conservative Political Action Conference is getting hammered by conservatives for not inviting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to its annual gathering in Washington, D.C., and for inviting Donald Trump (in photo). Though Christie isn’t as ideologically pure as some would like, conservatives should be ecstatic about his record of reform, columnist Cal Thomas argued. And inviting Trump – described by columnist Jennifer Rubin as “a self-promoting and unserious person” – made CPAC seem like a sideshow.
