RINO Mike Fitzpatrick, who many readers rushed to defend from my charges that he was a left-wing environut RINO when he ran to regain his seat in 2010, is the tenth most liberal Republican in Congress.
In 2005, RINO Mike was the 24th most liberal Republican in Congress.
In fairness to the “Mike is not a RINO” defenders, they may have been duped by Fitzpatrick’s 2010 lie that he had undergone a conservative conversion during the time when he wasn’t in office and had adopted the viewpoint of the Tea Party.
I’d love to hear from the readers who freaked out on me for pointing out RINO Mike’s 24th most liberal status now that he’s “improved” to 10th most liberal.
All apologies will be accepted graciously.
