It may look like representatives of GOProud, a group of gay conservatives, are speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference tomorrow, but they're not. Sure, they will be holding a panel in the same building at the same time, but they aren't officially part of CPAC. That's because CPAC -- a yearly gathering of who's who in the conservative movement -- did not invite GOProud to participate. The group is getting the chance to be on site, however, because one of the CPAC hosts, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, is sponsoring a panel called "A Rainbow on the Right: Growing the Coalition, Bringing Tolerance Out of the Closet."
