Bachmann signs on with Pawlenty, Beck, Birchers at CPAC

After bailing on the teabaggers, Rep. Michele Bachmann will be joining Gov. Tim Pawlenty preaching to the Republican Party base at a conference whose keynote speaker believes that Barack Obama is a racist, and that has signed on a co-sponsor noted for its historic opposition to civil rights.

The Minnesota duo, Glenn Beck and the John Birch Society will all have a place at the table for the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference slated for Feb. 18-20 in Washington, D.C. Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who famously bailed on her post as Alaska's governor, also bailed on a previous commitment to keynote at CPAC, making way for Beck.
