Get over yourselves

* When conservative Republicans refer to moderate Republicans as “RINOs,” it shows how small-minded they really are. Politics is a game of addition, not subtraction. Only people who don’t mind losing want to keep their party “pure.”
Why do the House Democrats perform so well in the suburbs and in many Downstate areas? One reason is they recruit former Republicans to run. Just to cite one example, the woman who beat the allegedly “unbeatable” state Rep. Skip Saviano was a former Republican. The list is long, and it’s not just the House. DuPage County’s only Democratic Senator is a former Republican.
The Democrats in this state welcome former Republicans with open arms. The ultra-conservative Republican “activists” too often want to throw moderates out of their party and keep former Democrats away at all costs.
* So instead of celebrating this young man’s hard work for the House Republican Organization, we get this headline…
OMG!!! Call the purity police! Also, if you look at the hyperlink’s text, you’ll see the original headline: “HRO Head Joe Woodward’s Democrat Connections Raise Eyebrows.” At least they toned it down.
* But Woodward still has to endure some guilt by association crud…
Horrors!!! Could he be some sort of Democratic plant? A Communist “Manchurian Staffer” who is about to take a purposeful dive for the Evil Democrat Machine in order to clear a path for THAT WOMAN???
He did a little low-pay grunt work for Hillary seven years ago to get some experience. He worked for his dad, who happens to be a Democrat and who is currently very ill. Yet, for some reason, conservatives have to treat anybody formerly connected in any way with the Democratic Party as if they were ISIL members.
* At least they did include this information…
If somebody dropped a dime on Joe they ought to be ashamed of themselves. Seriously, what the heck? The guy is working literally non-stop for his candidates and his party for lousy wages and he’s gotta deal with this silly grilling on top of everything else?
