“It’s been a long weekend,” said Marianne Smith, 23, eyes rolling and her face resting in her hand. “Somebody asked me to join their ‘Capital Club.’”

Asked for the worst pickup lines they’d heard at the conference, several young CPAC women revealed exceptionally bad ones.

“‘Why don’t you give me your number so I can give you information about my radio show?’” recounted Evelyn, a young woman affiliated with the group Network of Enlightened Women, who didn’t want her last name to be printed. “I was like, ‘Ohhhh,’” she said, mimicking her own disappointment. “It was ineffective.”

I can only imagine the glee that took place at the assignment desk when this gem was handed out in the ABC newsroom.
