'"I don't know anybody who can hold themselves out as the measuring stick or gold standard when it comes to being a true conservative," sniffed U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, who heads the National Republican Senatorial Committee and has drawn blistering scorn from RedState for snubbing Rubio and endorsing the more moderate and supposedly electable Crist for U.S. Senate.'

Exactly. Hoisted by his own petard. Republicans who believe that conservatism means anything and nothing are going to hate the next twelve months. The thoroughly detested go-along get-along wishy washy nothingness of the Cornyn ilk is the reason that virtually no conservatives and a very large chunk of independents do not trust the Republican party to hold the line on any specific conservative principle. They seem to think that bland, insipid, boring and worthy are virtues. And that bi-partisanship shows you are statesmanlike. Most of these dullards have no discernable intellectual content to their political life. They are simply in attendance at the pig trough in DC.
Well, time is up. Here comes the big broom!
