Hoft over at Gateway is well on his way to taking the Conservative landslide of 2010 and turning it back over to the Dems and assorted Leftists in 2012.
Reince Priebus engineered a takeover of Wisconsin government from a well-entrenched and well-funded Democrat Party by a bunch of TEA Party-backed Conservatives, many of the no-name variety. I do not know Priebus personally, but know many REAL Conservatives who think very highly of him.
ThinkProgress is already trying to claim he's a RINO (think about that...a Prog site is trying to get us to believe Priebus is a RINO...think?) because the Law Firm he worked for (Michael Best and Friedrich) lobbied for stimulus, and claims Obamacare is Constitutional. But Priebus WORKS for the firm. He does not own the firm. Further, law firms do their client's bidding. Priebus had nothing to do with either of these. To claim he is a RINO based on these is as absurd as saying one is a RINO if he works for GE or the company for which he works has government contracts.
TP also claims Priebus was "implicated in voter caging". This is a lie, plain and simple. He was accused of involvement in alleged voter caging, but the fact is this was a private endeavour to show evidence of voter fraud. For TP to infer that voter fraud in Wisconsin is a figment of someone's imagination shows either TP's failure to bother with researching facts, or their intentional misleading of their readers. Voter fraud is well-documented in Wisconsin. In 2008, nearly 5000 more votes were cast in Milwaukee than there are voter registrations.
Hoft and Gateway Pundit can decide they will kill this goose, but it will relegate Conservatives to the wilderness for generations.
