The Republican Party is not known for promoting casual dating, so naturally the Conservative Political Action Conference's panel on conservative dating drew more reporters -- like NASCAR fans rooting for a crash -- than small-government singletons ISO same. But while the panel offered some acceptably embarrassing quotes, not to mention a semi-famous "pick-up artist" who goes by Juggler, the real lessons appear to be going on in nearby hotels. Inspired by Slate's Dave Weigel's discovery of some CPACer seeking "casual encounters" on Craigslist, we found 10 listings for dudes seeking dudes mentioning CPAC, and we thought we'd compare their approaches to the expert's advice
Craigslist says: Correct! "Curious about getting together with other masculine, discreet guys, but can't do it back home? Join this hot group of straight, bi, and curious CPAC guys on Friday night."
Craigslist says: Correct! "you be white, fit, clean, under 30."
Craigslist says: Incorrect. "horny guy but wanna be discreet fooling around and i bet if youre here for cpac you need to be too. not looking to be crazy but making out, oral maybe more is cool for me if it is for you. your pics and stats get mine and definitely real quiet about trying this hope you will be too."
Craigslist says: It depends. "Hi fellow conservatives. I am attending CPAC and would like to meet others with whom I can hang out, attend events and discuss the events/speeches later on as well. Friends and network connections are great," says a poster under the heading "CPAC - m4m - 26."
Craigslist says: Incorrect. Obviously.
Craigslist says: Close! Example: "Very non conspicious as I will have a sport coat and tie on." Also: "I am looking to host a CPAC attendee/s. like guys with a conservative look." And: "Normal young prof guy here clean cut 5 10 150 auburn blue [anatomical reference redacted]."
Craigslist says: No. "looking to meet up with other CPAC bi-guys." CPAC only, okay?
