About that CPAC straw poll...

Mitt Romney came in tops in a straw poll this weekend at CPAC.

Yes, attendees at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, favor a candidate who proclaimed  himself a moderate and progressive just a decade ago.

How many attending the conference are CINOs (Conservatives in Name Only)? Meanwhile, Rick Santorum brings up the possibility some of those participating in the straw poll vote may have been paid to play in their role as Romney advocates.

These circumstances beg the question: How much of CPAC is still about equipping conservatives, and how much of it is now used to co-opt them?
