...off of The Other McCain:
Jumping in Pools says "The battering and blaming of the Republicans has to stop." Mr. Kat, when those GOP windbags threaten the invariant principles in, for example, the Constitution, then they are a tumor, albeit a benign one. The most you're buying from a RINO is time. The RINO's non-command of principles will feed the Progressive decline, albeit more slowly than a Democrat's. In a way, the Democrat is more admirable, because he's not blowing any sunshine up the public bottom about his task.
"Dammit, Smitty, time is what we need right now. And if folks are worried about the direction of the GOP, they can always join up."
I don't really disagree with his main argument, mind. But this situation isn't Bad Versus Worse. That was 2008, and Worse won. Now the situation is Worse Versus Stop Hitting Ourselves With The Hammer.
