My friend Bruce Carroll of Gay Patriot has a post at Big Journalism that must read, if it’s the only blog post you read all week,
The HomoCon Tipping Point: Why CPAC Was a Milestone Weekend for Gays
The conservative bloggers who were actually at CPAC and who actually witnessed the Sorba tirade went ballistic on him immediately. From Ace of Spades, to HotAir, to Michelle Malkin and across the entire center-right blogosphere, especially via Twitter, the reaction was one of complete and utter disdain – not for Sorba’s lack of etiquette, but for his message of intolerance.
Suddenly the mainstream media and liberal bloggers couldn’t hide the truth. The first video of Alexander McCobin was now on YouTube, going viral, and creating the contrast with how Sorba was booed off the CPAC stage. It was undeniable; facts truly are stubborn things. And this all happened at the speed of the internet in 2010.
The change in the reaction on the Left came when Keith Olbermann at MSNBC, in the midst of a rant on the “crazies” at CPAC, conceded that the conservatives turned on Sorba and stood up for GOProud. If Olbermann is defending CPAC, you know there’s a break in the Maginot Line.
Go read it all.
And of course, Gay Patriot‘s in you daily reads already, isn’t it?
