At the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Thursday, Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) was in rare form and presented a series of truths hard and fast throughout his fourteen-minute speech.
In 2022, Kennedy broke the internet with his bombshell “call a crackhead,” campaign ad. Under those same terms, he commenced saturation bombing at the Gaylord Center in Baltimore for CPAC.
As reported by Townhall, “Kennedy of Louisiana brought the ‘unadorned, unvarnished truth’ about America to CPAC on Thursday afternoon, emphasizing that we cannot order society, survive, or thrive as human beings without truth.”

In perhaps one of his more gentle jibes at President Joe Biden, Kennedy told the roaring crowd at CPAC, “The truth is, I do not hate anyone. I look for grace wherever I can find it, so I say this gently: the Biden administration sucks.”
Throughout his speech, Kennedy’s legendary oneliners flew with impunity. Specifically calling out Biden for “COVID, the economy, inflation, the national debt, the border, crime, cancel culture, treating parents like domestic terrorists, Afghanistan, our energy independence now lost,” characterizing Biden’s administration as “spectacularly awful.”

“If you put President Biden in charge of the Sahara Desert, he would run out of sand,” Kennedy proclaimed.
“If the aliens landed in Washington, D.C., tomorrow and said ‘take me to your leader,’ it would be embarrassing.”
Tackling racial controversies that have abounded, Kennedy said among a spate of truths, “Race should not be used to hurt a person or to help a person, you know why? Because the truth is also that souls have no color. To a bear, we all taste like chicken.”
In reference to recent events in Chicago surrounding the ouster of Mayor Lori Lightfoot he observed, “If gun control laws worked, Chicago would be Mayberry. Instead, it is the world’s largest outdoor shooting range.”
Potentially the most crowd-pleasing moment of his remarks was when he told the audience, “Arlington National Cemetery contains 400,000 reasons why you should stand your ass up for the national anthem,” adding with a grin “those who disagree…can stick that up their fact-checker.”
The Louisiana Republican, who many suggested might run for governor in late 2022, concluded his remarks with a tone of hope. He said America’s “future can be better than our present or our past.”
“At some point, we have to stop regretting yesterday and start creating tomorrow,” Kennedy exhorted the crowd. “I’m not going to bubble-wrap it: no one is coming to save us but ourselves. Most countries die from suicide, not murder.” He warned, “If we want to keep America, we have to fight for her.”
