So Much For the "Moderate" Myth

by
Abby Zimet

Maine's so-called "moderate Republicans" - the whiny, wussy Ms. Snowe
and Collins - will have to tinker with their already-bogus brand name
now that the state's GOP convention has scrapped its proposed party platform for a
wacko wish-list formulated by Tea Party activists. Among other delights,
it seeks to eliminate the Department of Education and Federal Reserve,
declare that "health care is not a right" and "freedom of religion" is
not "freedom from religion," abrogate the "Treaty on Rights of the
Child" and all other UN treaties, seal the borders, and investigate
"collusion between
government and industry in the global warming myth." Oh dear. Maine
too.
