The GOP Builds a Potemkin Village

What are RINO's Good For?...Getting Elected

For those of us who consider ourselves true to Republican principles of limited government, fiscal restraint and social tolerance the last four years have been a harrowing experience. Unless we marched lock step with the Administration and increasingly feeble Congressional leadership we were called everything from traitorous, Republican's in Name Only (RINOs), subjected to ad campaigns by the Club for Growth which indicated we're about as reliable as Jacques Chirac. Cheney may have reserved the F-bomb for Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, but the Bush Administration and its conservative backers have been giving moderates the finger for four years.

Of course now that the convention is creeping up, who do they ask to be the face the Party will present to the public? Marilyn Musgrave? Wayne Allard? John Ashcroft? Nope, they're presenting a parade of RINOs, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rudy Gulliani, and John McCain. Although there is some variance among these chaps (McCain is a right to lifer) all of them represent policy positions that are not shared by the administration - Fiscal conservatism and social liberalism.

I guess yesterday's traitors are today's heroes....

GOP speakers: McCain, Schwarzenegger
