The party is irrelevant. Always has been. The point is, when you push your bad apples off onto another group, you expose yourself to the same nonsense.
But I couldn't disagree more. A party is as relative as its platform. I'm not even sure I know exactly what you meant there, so I should probably wait for clarification before ranting.
One man's bad apple is another man's pie filling. You're accusing Republicans of trying to push a "bad apple" out...what makes him a bad apple to Republicans? (Well, aside from the child porn charges that were later dropped - but we've barely been talking about those.)
Would he be considered a bad apple to Libertarians? To libertarians?

(I'm usually either right or wrong.)
Every party has it's rotten apples.
Parties exist to elect people.
Philosophies describe ideas.
If you disagree with someone's ideas, debate the ideas.
If you would like to ask a question about a philosophy, fire away. But try to avoid personal attacks, it didn't work too well for the other poster. I assume you are an honest poster so you can take that as a general comment not aimed at you specifically.
