The Washington Post sent a reporter to cover the screening of the Ayn Rand fan boy project. I though they capture the essence of CPAC and the so-called conservative and/or glibertarian movement:
Perhaps you should elbow your way into the standing-room-only conference room on the mezzanine level, where herds of eager viewers are preparing to watch a sneak preview of a selection of scenes from the long-awaited movie adaptation of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged.”
Because inasmuch as the audience is made up of a group of people who have organized their entire belief system around a novel, this screening ultimately amounts to the equivalent of a Harry Potter screening at Comic-Con.
Their entire belief system is based on fantasy. That about sums it up.
And in another bit of circle closing detail: the producer of the fan boy fantasy worked with Jack Abramoff to co-produce Red Scorpion back in the day (yet another effort to bring fan boy conservatism/glibertarianism wet dreams to the silver screen).
