Sophie Hawkins to Headline GOProud/Breitbart Party at CPAC

Seems I should have stayed in DC, looks like GOProud’s CPAC party with Andrew Breitbart is going to be one heckuva blow out:

“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.”

The invitation only event will be headlined by Grammy Award nominated singer/songwriter Sophie B. Hawkins, and will be held from 9 PM to Midnight at the 18th Street Lounge in Washington, D.C. The event sponsors include Paul E. Singer, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Poker Players Alliance, Institute for Liberty, and Bank of Kev Productions.

Emphasis added.  Yup, folks despite the odd behavior of the Heritage Foundation and the media focus on the handful of groups boycotting the conservative confab, most leading American conservatives have no problem working alongside their gay confrères.



  1. The Li’l Abner “Homliest gal in them hills” character?

  5. I like “I Wish I Was Your Lover.” However, her participation at any GOPround/conservative event will make her a pariah in the music industry & shallow celebrity culture.

  6. Breitbart couldn’t get Suzanne Vega?

  7. Elton John was unavailable.

  8. GOProud should have tried to get Darren Criss from Glee. He’s dreamy.

  9. I thought he was going to go all 80’s though, with Depeche Mode and New Order?

  10. I just burned all my Sophie Hawkins CDs.

  11. #10 Is that supposed to be some sort of zinger or something?

    Comment by American Elephant — February 3, 2011 @ 10:28 pm - February 3, 2011

  12. I heard her in an interview and I am now a new fan of Sophie’s. She has allowed herself to see the truth and the meanness and hipocracy of the left.

  13. #5 Sebastian Shaw: I don’t think Ms. Hawkins has anything to worry about. There are plenty of examples of conservative musicians. Ted Nugent (obvious example), Amy Grant, Debby Boone, Deniece Williams, Anita Bryant (oh, don’t go there), Charlie Daniels, Toby Keith, Randy Travis, Lee Greenwood, etc. Sophie had 2 big hits. “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” (#5 June 27, 1992 and “As I Lay Me Down” (#6 October 28, 1995).

  14. #10: “I just burned all my Sophie Hawkins CDs.”

    Clearly, Steve ran out of books containing ideas he disagrees with so he’s moved onto his CD collection.

  15. And, since burning his CDs would have released toxic gases and been an EPA violation, no doubt he’ll be turning himself into them for a fine and jail time.

    Unless he’s just as much of a hypocrite there as he is in every other respect.

  16. Steve, you are aware Democrats make up for the Tea Party as much as Conservatives & Republicans, right?

  17. Would Andrew Breitbart literally have to kill someone on live TV for him to lose credibility with you people?

    Comment by Levi — February 4, 2011 @ 9:37 am - February 4, 2011

  18. No, not kill someone…

    He’d lose credibility with me (and my friends) when his work is PROVEN to be falsified, doctored or rigged in some way.
    Oh, but wait, that’s not likely… because ALL HE DOES is show up to lefty functions and LET THE CAMERA ROLL.
    Faced with such direct evidence, it would seem best that your Comrades! would lose credibility in YOUR eyes… not the back to front reasoning you present for Breitbart losing his.

  19. Thank you rodney (see, we CAN agree).

    Besides, Levi, your prefered form of goverment has killed Millions, and you still support it.

    Comment by The_Livewire — February 4, 2011 @ 10:12 am - February 4, 2011

  20. I was going to say Levi, Breitbart is the one EXPOSING people who kill children for a living, and exposing their unethical, immoral and ILLEGAL behavior.

    Planned Parenthood doesn’t question the credibility of the videos, they fired the woman immediately. Why do you? And why do you defend their illegal, immoral behavior?

    And while you’re at it, do you do ANYTHING besides project?

    Comment by American Elephant — February 4, 2011 @ 1:40 pm - February 4, 2011

  21. Hey Levi, back at you:

    “Would MuBarack Obama literally have to kill someone on live TV for him to lose credibility with you people?”

  22. Britebart claims Gay activism is worse than terrorism.

    Comment by Doom — February 4, 2011 @ 5:45 pm - February 4, 2011

  23. #22 No, he didn’t.

    Comment by ThatGayConservative — February 5, 2011 @ 7:14 am - February 5, 2011

  24. #23: TGC, isn’t it funny how the leftists claiming to be outraged about something a conservative said NEVER seem to quote them accurately?

  25. […] are made at CPAC after parties. Whether it’s a pre-planned affair like the Blog Bash or the Andrew Breitbart/GOProud party or an impromptu hotel suite bacchanalia, chances are you’ll get to one or two. By all means, […]

  26. Vegan Sophie B. Hawkins is a two-hit wonder and a big supporter of Hillary “prochoice” Clinton. Homocon? Try: Homodem bore. What an embarrassment. Is that the best they could do? Come on. Love to get her position on aborting future gays and gun control.
