GOProud's thanks for giving CPAC more coverage than it's ever had? A swift curb kick, natch
According to WorldNetDaily (so make of it what you will), organizers have already chosen to strip gay conservative group GOProud from next year's CPAC convention:
a source has confirmed that a board vote has been taken that will realign plans for those who participate [in CPAC] next year to exclude homosexual advocacy, although details had not been released.
A spokeswoman at the ACU promised WND a statement regarding the new position, but it had not arrived yet.

That last point is valid, and we certainly don't treat WND as anything close to credible. But "ACU promised WND a statement" goes beyond typical far-right spin. It's not opinion journalism: It either is or it isn't, regardless of who reports it. So stay tuned to see if the statement materializes.
**UPDATE: The aforementioned Signorile interview got CRAZY heated, and Mike hung up on Chris. We'll try to get audio.
