Given the overabundance of men who show up, says Lisa De Pasquale, the odds are good for women trying to find a date at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). But, cracks the former CPAC organizer, "the goods are definitely odd."
A long-time conservative activist with libertarian leanings, De Pasquale is the author of the new book, Finding Mr. Righteous, which Ann Coulter calls "a true Christian story disguised as racy chick lit." The memoir documents De Pasquale's misadventures while dating right-wingers, Republicans, and conservatives. "A majority of conservative men I see like to talk about how 'hot' women on 'our' side are," she says, with a laugh and a sigh. "These were the dorky kids in high school and they want to brag about how now they have a hot wife."
Reason TV's Nick Gillespie sat down with De Pasquale to discuss Finding Mr. Righteous, dating in D.C., and how liberal and conservative men may not be so different when it comes to talking about women in politics.
