Moore politics

Michael Moore is covering the Republican National Convention in NYC for USA Today. In his first column, he describes his experience of finding that many convention attendees tend toward a degree of liberalism that isn't always consistent with the party line. He calls them RINOs: Republicans In Name Only. He struggles to understand why these RINOs, who appear to be in the majority at the convention, continue to support the GOP. He thinks he's found the reason.
Money. That's what it comes down to for the RINOs. They do work hard and have been squeezed even harder to make ends meet. They blame Democrats for wanting to take their money. Never mind that it's Republican tax cuts for the rich and billions spent on the Iraq war that have created the largest deficits in history and will put all of us in hock for years to come.
I guess Moore doesn't think that it's possible that many RINOs simply disagree with the principles by which the DNC intends to operate. Democratic policies are very rarely as simplistic as "everybody just be nice to each other."

That said, Dick Cheney is evil.
