I’m not one to call someone a RINO – Republican In Name Only – shorthand for the purge of the GOP of anyone who doesn’t take talking-points from FoxSkews. Maybe there are still some Republicans who aren’t opposed to all authority – scientific or educational or governmental – that isn’t tight-fisted, small-minded, and weirdly “Christian.”
“The minute that the Republican Party becomes the anti-science party, we have a huge problem,” candidate Jon Huntsman said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” — a declaration that makes me wonder how familiar Huntsman is with the political organization he seeks to lead.
Er, that “minute” ticked by before the DUHbya Error.
“I think when you find yourself at an extreme end of the Republican Party,” Huntsman said of Perry, “you make yourself unelectable.”
