Will Civitas speaker tout secession?

Posted By Rob Schofield On March 1, 2012 @ 2:15 pm In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

[1]We know all of you out there are revved up for this weekend’s “conservative leadership conference”/GOP election pep rally [2] that’s being hosted by the, ahem, nonpartisan Pope Civitas Institute. 

The event will feature a dreary assortment of far right think tankers and a handful of second-tier national media figures.

Of course the “star” of the show will be syndicated radio squawker and self-proclaimed “America’s Mr. Right,” Jason Lewis [3]. Lewis, as the Institute for Southern Studies has noted [4], is perhaps best known for his ongoing promotion of a new amendment to the U.S. Constituion that would establish the right of individual states to secede from the union.

So, here is the big question for the upcoming weekend: “Will Mr. Right stick to his secessionist guns in his big lunchtime speech on Saturday or will he tone it down so as not to embarrass the Pope people at a time when foot-in-mouth disease is afflicting so many other conservative politicians [5] and pontificators [6]?

We’re happy to receive your predicitions in the comment section below and will try to have a report up as soon as we hear something from the event.

We place the current odds at 2 to 1 that Lewis WILL mention secession and even money that he will devote time to defending it.
