As Twitchy reported, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was invited to participate in a CPAC panel while gay conservative group GOProud was not. The stupid, it burns:
CPAC's invitation letter to Chris Hayes referred to him as "one of America's leading conservative voices."

Hayes appears to have received the same form letter as other invitees.
As one of America’s leading conservative voices, your participation in CPAC 2013 will be critical in our efforts to unite and energize conservatives.
But Hayes’ “leading conservative voice” is unlikely to make it to CPAC after all.

For those of you who need a reminder of who Chris Hayes is:
Heckuva job, CPAC!
