Conservative activist and Ann Coulter critic Daniel Borchers is calling CPAC’s decision not to invite Coulter to speak at this year’s conference “a fraud” because it is allowing her to host a parallel “Q & A session” there. When asked if CPAC was trying to have it both ways with Coulter, American Conservative Union president David Keene dodged the question, but held out the possibility that she’d be invited in 2009:
We just decided that, given the agenda and all that we had going on this year, there was not a reason to invite her. … She wasn’t suggested this year. That doesn’t mean she won’t be invited again next year.
