GOP Update, such as it is.

Wow, try to find any picture coming out of the Southern Republican Leadership Conference that wouldn’t double as a narcoleptic. This photo the LAT turned up suggests:

1.) Things pretty flat from the podium.

2.) GOP in a bad way to find group excitement.

3.) Noise mostly coming from the fringe.

I’d say the this stage and the lighting strategy does seem reminiscent of more spicy GOP forays, though.

Ron Paul, shown on the monitor, and other luminaries at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, a showcase for potential nominees for president in the 2012 election. Despite high spirits, party divisions were apparent.)
