re: #28 Sharmuta

These people over at malkin’s have stolen “conservatism”. They’re not conservatives. They are other things, and they’ve latched onto the word. If they want to go RINO hunting, they should start with the mirror.

They may have stolen it or perhaps taken it over, but they have a better claim to conservatism than John McCain or Bob Dole or William Buckley. Conservativism and liberalism, to the extent those words describe the right and left in the US, change over time. The conservative energy today and for the past few years,is overwhemingly behind the Malkins, not the Goldwaters, I would say.
