While groups like the Family Research Council, Concerned Women for America, and Liberty University have directly pointed to GOProud as the reason they aren’t attending next month’s CPAC, it has been for months the position of the D.C.-based think tank The Heritage Foundation that it was a financial decision. Except now, when queried by the New York Times for a piece on the divide over Jimmy LaSalvia’s group of self-hating gays, Heritage spokesman James Weidman insists, “GOProud was one element in the decision.” Give it up for revisionist history, ladies and gentlemen, from the same group that would go to the guillotine defending the impeccable record of Ronald Reagan. (Also worth repeating: FRC didn’t take part last year, either, so la-ti-da.) [via]
