A hot tub, Rep. Steve Stockman, and a CPAC party

Sounds like one party at the Conservative Political Action Conference last weekend at National Harbor might have come close to emulating the frat-party atmosphere of that CPAC fete famously dreamed up by fabricator Stephen Glass in 1997 starring a bathtub full of beer, a destroyed mini-bar and a joint.

The real-life CPAC party, held at a suite in the Gaylord Hotel where the conference was taking place, featured an expletive-spewing congressman, Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Tex.), offering $20 to whoever would jump into the bathroom’s hot tub, according to Slate’s Dave Weigel. Weigel witnessed Stockman, the quirky challenger who was just crushed by Sen. John Cornyn in the state’s senate Republican primary, offer this eloquent toast: “F*** the left!”

Apparently, Stockman got some takers on his dare: photos circulated Monday on Twitter showing the congressman standing near the tub, drink in hand, chatting with a few other partygoers and the guy who had taken the plunge.
