runaway hashtag...and llamas!!

''(At this week's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAQ), the organizers' invitation to ordinary Americans for sample questions for CPAQ speakers went) horribly, gleefully, predictably awry. Sample questions that came in at hashtag : Which leading Republican will be indicted next? Since you insist it's safe, may we frack in your backyard? Will Obamacare make me gay marry ISIS? I've heard people will not be allowed to drink their coffee black at the conference - is this true? Since I'm only a woman, can you explain what being pregnant means?

Ahh, entertaining.
