At CPAC, the only villain bigger than socialism is Mitt Romney

“The party of Mitt Romney was a party that did not fight,” Kirk said. “It was a party that wanted to preserve the ruling class.”

CPAC attendees claimed to be just as sick of their party’s one-time standard bearer.

“I never liked him, and I’m glad he’s not here,” said Diane Ventura, who was at CPAC to sell “Trump Towels,” a commemorative towel modeled on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Terrible Towel.

“That is the most jealous man on the planet,” agreed Dion Cini, a fellow Trump Towel vendor.
