CPAC to Avoid “Two-Bit Whores” This Year

Immodest CPAC attendees

If you didn't get lucky at the Conservative Police Action Conference 2012 in Washington, you weren't trying hard enough. The general sexiness of last year's younger attendees was frequently lamented, with RedState's Erick Erickson moaning about young cons buying condoms and blogger Melissa Clouthier denouncing them as "two-bit whores."

But this year's conference, starting Thursday, will be much more modest, because publicist Adrienne Royer has made an infographic called "What to Wear at CPAC."According to Royer, CPAC's dress code means suits, boots, and dresses—but definitely no TOMS, rompers, or "'dressy' shorts." "If you would wear it to a club or a bar, DON'T WEAR IT," Royer writes.

But maybe CPAC never had a whorishness problem after all. Last year, blogger John Hawkins argued that CPAC women hook up less than the average, non-CPAC-attending woman because they "don’t believe in abortion and their friends probably WILL judge them harshly for having a one night stand in DC."

With a crowd this fun, who needs sex and booze?

    A little bit of hell on Earth for 3 days, right in DC.

    Yup. The Dem’s ‘elite thought leaders’ have been known for their ‘flip-flops’ — so if Conservatives want to show up wearing ‘thongs’, it’s kind of the same thing, right? Po-tay-to/Po-tah-to? (Get a life, people — if someone doesn’t know that the way they dress affects how they and their ideals are perceived, an infographic is not going to cure them of their ignorance… but it WILL give Leftist papers and blogs fodder to further ridicule the enemies of Statism. Think Before You Post.)

    Most conservative people do know how to dress. They obviously had to publish a dress code for Sarah Palin. When they saw her mini skirt, low-necked blouse, and 6 inch slutty heels with chains from last weeks appearance at the ultra conservative Southeastern University, they realized that that some people need help.

    Personally, while I understand the looking better than a Daytona Beach tourist, I do not believe we need to look at a hardcore dress code for meetings like this. Clothes do not make someone more conservative. Barry Soetoro wears a suit - and obviously he is not a conservative. It is tiring to have gatherings where clothes have become more of a focus than the meeting. I've discussed this on my radio show ( ) and hope that the GOP does not think everyone needs to wear a suit everywhere just to "get more votes".
