Are you infected with RINOitis?

If you are a Republican, RINOitis can cripple you ability to stand on principle, and lead to a bad case of Bipartisnship Disorder. Smitty, at The Other McCain is offering help diagnosing these maladies

Already we are told to blame the Tea Party movement for not taking back the Senate, even though more “moderate” Republicans lost their races than Tea Party supporters.

Two words in response to this tripe from the Establishment, the second of which is ‘You!’.

Here in Virginia, we had to watch George Allen, who is a Nice Guy, get his T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII schtick applied to him in the suppository fashion. Why was I subjected to televised debates of a brace of ex-Governors, one animated, the other not? Because Virginia’s open primaries permitted the Democrats to pick their poison, and that was the one they’d tossed under the bus in 2006.

Props to Tim Kaine; for a statist throne sniffer, he’s an excellent salesman. Door knocking for the GOP ticket, I encountered people happy enough to vote for Mitt, but planning to throw George under the bus. Perhaps Jaime Radtke would not have beaten Kaine in November, but she’d have been more than a 6’2″ wad of cotton candy in a suit, I reckon.

Working together, and taking Smitty’s advice, we CAN beat RINOitis in our time!


Pro-Choice? No, Pro-Liberally-Approved-Choice

Of all the lies that the Left regularly spews, the “pro-choice” lie is the most inane as this story illustrates

Tim Kaine, the Virginia governor and President Barack Obama’s hand-picked choice as the head of the Democratic National Committee, infuriated abortion-rights groups Monday by signing legislation that gives abortion foes a long-sought victory.

Kaine brushed off intense lobbying by abortion rights supporters in Richmond to sign a bill that allows Virginia motorists to advertise their anti-abortion views by sporting “Choose Life” specialty license plates

The revenue from the specialty plates would go to crisis-pregnancy centers, which many abortion-rights backers believe proslyetize against abortion and encourage women to keep unwanted children

It is surprising that Governor Kaine would do this, but it’s all the more surprising that he would do it as chair of the DNC,” said Paulette McElwain, the president of the Virginia League for Planned Parenthood.

McElwain exchanged numerous calls with the governor’s office over the license plates and organized a grass roots effort that logged more than 2,000 calls to the governor’s staff.

“We provided him with abundant information,” she said. “We’re terribly disappointed that he decided to sign it.”

In Washington, NARAL/Pro-Choice America channeled more than 17,000 emails and 200 calls to the DNC urging Kaine to veto the bill.

“It is unfortunate that, even after receiving thousands of messages from Virginians and pro-choicea ctivists across the country, Gov.Kaine has opted to sign a bill that advances a divisive political ideology at the expense of women’s health” NARAL /Pro-Choice America president Nancy Keenan said in a statement.

Ah, excuse the obvious question, but how in the Hell does a “choose Life” license plate endanger women’s health? This is a great example of the fear campaign Planned Parenthood and NARAL have used to scare women into supporting abortion on demand.

The fact is this. If the pro-choicers are really what they say, then women choosing to have their babies, rather than aborting them, would never bother them at all. But, alas moral and intellectual consistency take a back seat to $$$$ here! Abortion is a business, a BIG business that produces great profits for NARAL and Planned Parenthood. It is all about the revenues baby!

Choice? Sure, but only if it approved by, and, in this case, profitable for the Left!
