Republican Colin Powell publicly endorses Barack Obama for President over John McCain. He is hailed a hero by the MSM, and RINOs hold him up as a role model for what the Republican party should be “more like.”
Democrat Zell Miller publicly endorses George W. Bush for President over Sen. Kerry. He is viciously attacked by both the MSM and the Democrats. Afterwards, did the Democrats sit around whining about how they were not being a big enough tent by kicking Miller to curb? Did the Democrats argue that they needed to move to the right, to be more moderate, in order to win the next Presidential election? HELL NO! They went further to the left than even that Senator from the People’s Republic of Massachusetts. They went out and got a radical community organizer and said to hell with going moderate. The Pubs, meanwhile, went out and nominated the most moderate of all U.S. Republican Senators. And he got his ass handed to him.
Moderates are only for themselves. Their loyalty is an inch wide and an inch deep. Pandering to moderates is a waste of time. It’s like trying to keep a bitch in heat locked up. She’s gonna run away, first chance she gets, with any old dog that comes around. Even when Republicans actually nominate a “moderate.” The chances of them copulating with the right dog and not running off with the wrong dog depends on their mood. Speaking of bitches, Meghan McCain perfectly makes my point here, as she famously flirted with voting for Obama over her own father.
