On Laura Ingraham’s Wednesday radio show, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said he is not clear on what the point of the Conservative Political Action Conference is anymore. …

“I don’t know what the purpose of CPAC is anymore,” Gingrich said. “I’m going to speak there early on Saturday and of course, we’re showing a few movies for Citizens United that we’ve done — one on Reagan and one on Pope John Paul II. But CPAC at one time was sort of the militant wing of the conservative movement. It was a place where Ronald Reagan gave his famous speech about bold colors, not pale pastels. I don’t know what CPAC is today. It’s huge. It draws lots and lots of people, particularly students. It gets a fair amount of attention in the media. But I don’t know how they define who gets to come in and who doesn’t get to come in. And my sense is the board is not very open and not very clear about, you know whether its personality decisions or what they’re thinking.”
