Steve Bainbridge thinks the Republican Party should kick out Bill Kristol and others like him: “The USA does need at least one Daddy party. It needs at least one party that believes in individual freedom and limited government.”
There is a large contingent that wants to kick out RINOs, with rather widely diverging beliefs as to what constitutes a RINO. Everything from opposing the Iraq War to opposing Harriet Miers to favoring immigration reform seems to qualify one for excommunication. While Kristol quite frequently gets on my nerves, it’s going to be a mighty small party, indeed, if we insist on ideological purity on all matters.
N.B. – Kristol is just a pundit. He’s neither in a position to make public policy nor a candidate for office. He seems a particularly inapt target for our frustrations.
