They mixed up the photos of two black politicians.


The website for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) appeared to have mistakenly posted a photo of Sen. Tim Scott (R-NC) in a biography for conservative activist Dr. Ben Carson, both of whom are scheduled to be speakers at the event this week.
A screengrab of the mixup tweeted by Washington Post reporter Ben Terris on Wednesday morning showed that, at least on the CPAC mobile site, Carson’s entry displayed Scott’s portrait.

    Yup, how’s that reachy outty thing goin’ for ya’?

      What they have is a failure to communicate. They don’t want to “reach out” to minorities. They want to “keep them at arm’s length”.

        More like under their boots, but yeah.

    Ya seen one black man, ya seen em all. I bet Sen. Scott is real proud to be a republican right now.

      This isn’t his first run in with stupidity when it comes to this party, I do not know this man, but I do know the party and we know how they “think”.

    If CPAC has any notions that their canonization of Sen. Scott and Dr. Carson is going to do anything to generate votes for conservatives in black communities, all they need to do is take a look at the 99% white audience when each man is speaking. That should disabuse them of that fantasy.

    For several years now, I have toyed with the idea of combining a trip home to DC to see my family with some lurking at the CPAC event. Was not able to do it this year. Maybe next year and if Dr. Carson and Sen. Scott return, there will be 3 black people at the gathering.

    Maybe I will go in 2017. I will be eligible for the senior discount. Only $175 and Sarah Palin might wink at me!

      Only if you serve her lunch with a smile.

      Careful, remember at the CPAC 2 years ago the convention goers were throwing peanuts at black women and calling them monkeys

    just reading that bio bit, someone clearly has forgotten where he came from. and no! they don’t look anything alike… lol

    They might just as well have used an avatar for them both

    Talk about disingenuous! Geez. The GOP has 3 black guys to remember: Ben Carson, Allen West, and this guy (and 4 in all if you count Condi)

    I remember back in june on flag day the democrat twitter account sending out a tweet “happy flag day” of something that wasn’t a us flag… I chalked it up to a simple mistake, nothing to read into it while the right wing sites went nuts over it(saying how the left doesn’t even know their country’s flag)… I took a lot of slams for saying it was just a mistake(people make them from time to time).
    I’m having to remind those sites that are now upset they are taking ‘hits’ about this that they did the same back then.
    Sometimes a mistake is just that, a mistake. To make it into something else is actually worse than the mistake in my view.

    That’s a rhetorical question right? ‘Cuz the answer to the real question is yes.

    I feel like a wimp that I haven’t been kicked out of here yet. In free America I never would have put up with this.

    • Fairypuff Phairypuf February 26th, 2015 at 9:09 am

      They sure all look alike at the voting booth. Herd mentality is a good comparison.

        Black power advocate Colon Powell threw veteran war hero John McCain under the bus (because of Rush Limbaugh ?) for Obama?
        The truth is simply something you have to deal with honestly.
