It's sounds like a set up for a joke: The NYC hotel hosting the CPAC convention is over-run with complaints of an insidious and pervasive infestation of blood-sucking pests...and they have bed bugs too.

The three-legged stool of conservatism is strong and united at CPAC! Yes, as intelligent and alive as a small piece of furniture. However, the stool may not last long, as the hotel they chose, the Marriott Wardham Park, seems to currently be infested with bedbugs. Yes, we knew that, but are there blood-sucking insects there too? Har har har. “I woke up seeing the bed bugs on the bed, on my shirt and even on the bed that I am not using. Unbelievable!!! The hotel staff wasn’t surprised with what happened at all. I will never stay here again,” one visitor wrote recently. Hey, don’t worry about that. That sounds more like Teabaggers than bedbugs.

wake up in the morning and I had all my leg cover with red spot. the bed was full of tiny little blood spot

Seems like English may not be this poster’s first language. Perhaps some conservatives visited in the night and stabbed him or her in the legs, just to be safe that the hotel wouldn’t be bombed?

I attended the AWP Conference from February 2-6 and found a bed bug in my suitcase upon returning home. Had to throw out my suitcase and am now dealing with cleaning everything else I took with me. Don’t stay here.

I'd say that catching whatever is plaguing Andrew Breitbart, Ann Coulter, Dick Cheney and Michele Bachmann is far worse than a few bed bugs.
