I have no love loss for Rino Kean but its not like he's a RINO from Texas or Georgia where you would expect a real conservative. He's from a blue state where RINO's are expected. Why just give a seat to the Dems?

If Snowe, Chafee and Kean vote for our side 65% of the time, and their from blue states, its better than a dem who votes 0% of the time.

In my opinion if we have a chance to get any R from the west coast or the north east we should do what we can to get them elected. Its not like its the Republican primary and the choice is a conservative Republican vs. a RINO. Its a communist bent on impeachment and America losing in Iraq vs. a guy who will be loyal a decent percent of the time.

The point is the old eastern establishment - Rockefeller Wing Republicans have never forgiven conservatives for their takeover of the Republican Party. I hasten to add that despite their increasingly liberal votes on key issues, it hasn't prevented the Democrats from going after them. The demographics in Northern districts are not favorable to conservatives. As it is in many Northern States, the GOP is on life support. In our lifetime, I don't think we'll see a conservative Republican elected to the U.S Senate from the Northeast and California. There are just too many Democrats there to preclude an electoral breakthrough.

Great point!

As much as I can't stand it, GOP candidates in overwhelming Dem-lib states almost HAVE to say some things critical of Republicans in order to win.

Kean Jr., of course, went overboard when he called for Rumsfield's resignation, etc.

But when I study Menendez' rhetoric and ACTUAL voting patterns, there simply is no choice.

Kean Jr. must win. If not, American values takes another step into the pig pit.
