While Politico‘s Alexander Burns drew the strange ire of conservative Robert Stacy McCain for Burns’ weekend Winners and Losers of CPAC story, others populated the beat. McCain complained about Burns working for Politico and being a Harvard grad, saying neither qualified him to judge CPAC. He referred to him as “Harvard boy.”
WaPo‘s Chris Cillizza released his list today. The Daily Beast ran an editorial by former GOP strategist for President Bush Mark McKinnon, president of Maverick Media, who weighed in with this story. Cillizza named Mitt Romney and Rep. Michele Bachman (R-Minn.) as winners and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) and Ron Paul as losers. McKinnon went into greater depth about the attendees.
McCain, in his reverse snobbery, may want to also attack Cillizza for graduating from Georgetown. He may leave McKinnon alone since he was a song writer early on and studied at The University of Texas at Austin. He could be “Austin Boy.”
