Yes! It's Republican Friday!

Republicans say RINO's are an endangered species.

Yes, it's that time of the week again, where I try to stand up a live Republican who's a true conservative, meaning a non-Neo- conservative. It's getting progressively harder to find real conservatives. I think that's probably because party neo-purists are in the process of purifying putrefying the Grand Old Party, shrinking the G.O.P.'s tent. It's as if The Club for Growth is actively preoccupied with hunting RINO's down. In preparation for a 2012 comeback, the RNC has been directed to return to 'basic principles'. But about what basic principles, I think there's a lot of confusion.

This morning, I misspent an hour trying to read and understand some anti-McCain Republican blogs, and I have come away with my mind completely at sea. It's like they are talking and writing in a completely different language. The Vigil's staff has an opening for a Lexicographer!

Anyways, nominations are open for an authentic, reality-based, budget-balancing, constitution-defending, non-warmongering Republican.

The culling of the Republican Herd will come at the hands of Democrats this fall.

BTW, Love the graphics you've used today.

Ditto Vigil. I love the graphics and the story is good too:-)

I am encouraged by the news coming out of traditional Repugnant strongholds. It seems the Democrats are already making some serious advances, breaking down the walls of tradition and giving hope to an electorate long victimized by the party of Newt Gingrich, Larry Craig, and of course the infamous George Bush.

Vig... just wanted you to know I posted two comments on your liberalism vs progressivism post.

I hope I explained myself better than I must have been doing lately...

Oh, that RINO! Great!

Vig, I had the strangest experience talking to a friend in the military. He says he's a Republican, but he's a RINO. He supports:

1. Gun Control
2. A woman's right to choose
3. Legalizing all drugs
4. Vehemently supports separation of church and state
5. Strengthening environmental policies

Now I ask you, isn't that a RINO?

Being that no one fits any label 100 percent and even good decent people can have major differences of opinions I have to nominate one of the guys on my blogroll, Zombieslayer. He is an pro-choice Republican leaning heavily into the old "don't tread on me" Libertarian creed.

Yes, beach, exactly. During the course of our discussion, we both agreed that "grouping" people is akin to prejudice. (I guess that's point #6...)

I guess I can't even call him a RINO—just someone with common sense.

Many Rethuglicans are just mean. However, you remind me, beach, that a sense of humor and the ability to listen without judgment can be an excellent learning experience. We are all on the path we need to travel.

Thanks for ending my week with your comment and good thoughts.
