Sophie B. Hawkins To Headline GOProud/Breitbart Party At CPAC

Andrew Breitbart's promised "Super Gay 80s CPAC Party" for GOProud will actually be headlined by openly bisexual 90s two-hit wonder Sophie B. Hawkins. (Depeche Mode and New Order must have been unavailable.) Hawkins is best known for her 1992 hit Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover, an appropriate metaphor for all that begging GOProud makes for Tea Party love. Via press release:
“The Big Party will celebrate GOProud and the growth of a conservative movement that is focused on getting the government out of people’s lives,” said Jimmy LaSalvia, Executive Director of GOProud. “We are thrilled to have Andrew Breitbart join us in putting together what will be the party of the CPAC weekend.” “This party will highlight the story the main stream media has missed in the weeks leading up to CPAC, namely that the vast majority of the conservative movement is united and welcomes GOProud and any other conservative into the fold,” said Andrew Breitbart, a member of GOProud’s Advisory Council. “The truth is that it is liberals in America who are bent on dividing people, on forcing people into ideological boxes based merely on their race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.”
Adding to the oddity of Hawkins' CPAC selection is that she was an ardent supporter of Hillary Clinton, even to the point of rerecording her above-cited trademark hit in support of Clinton's 2008 presidential bid.
