If you've got clinically low blood pressure, I've got great news: the CPAC, or Conservative Political Action Conference, is meeting this week in Washington, raising the city's level of curmudgeonly dickishness to unprecedented levels. At the forefront of the race toward insufferability is Cal Thomas, conservative pundit who believes that Rachel Maddow's very existence is a great argument in favor of contraception... for Rachel Maddow's parents! Good one, dude!

If this clip depresses you, don't worry: this is the same crowd who thought Michele Bachmann would be a viable national candidate for President and who is driven mad with political lust for the scholarly opinions of Sarah Palin. They're the definition of fringe.

And, if it's any consolation, I'm sure Rachel Maddow would rather be a human argument for contraception than a human argument for euthanasia.
