Grand Orwellian Party Purity

Chalk up another brilliant plan to expand the GOP's tent. A new purity test is being floated at the RNC. No money for any candidates who disagree with more than three prongs of this resolution. Here's the first three:
(1) We support smaller government, smaller national debt, lower deficits and lower taxes by opposing bills like Obama’s “stimulus” bill;

(2) We support market-based health care reform and oppose Obama-style government run healthcare;

(3) We support market-based energy reforms by opposing cap and trade legislation;
You'll notice they're cleaving to the grand Orwellian tradition of double speak. Opposition is Support. Corporate welfare is the common good. Stupid resolutions is smart thinking. I sometimes get the feeling they don't really want to win yet, because they know they effed up the works so thoroughly, they have to wait another election cycle or two to let the Democrats repair the damage first.

This same bunch of "small government loonies" fell over backwards supporting budget busting invasions and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan. They all fell in line to support the prescription drug program that has further enriched pharmaceutical companies while driving up deficits.

They never saw a big corporation like Exxon they didn't want to give a big tax break or incentive to. Or deregulate. The nihilist in me admires these jokers for their who cares attitude about credibility.

They really don't seem to care do they Truth? Then again, they don't need to. Apparently their supporters will believe anything, no matter how illogical.
