Noted “moderate” Olympia Snowe accidentally points out that she and Arlen Spector shouldn’t be in the Republican party based on her own proposed litmus test. She quotes Ronald Reagan in her New York Times Op Ed today.
“We should emphasize the things that unite us and make these the only ‘litmus test’ of what constitutes a Republican: our belief in restraining government spending, pro-growth policies, tax reduction, sound national defense, and maximum individual liberty.”
Ms. Snowe and Mr. Specter personally facilitated the monstrosity known as the stimulus package and thus have shown that neither passes what in her own words is the “only ” litmus test for being a Republican. How is that the fault of the Republican party?
