I can understand the instinct, for lack of a better term, for some to 'run home to the rinos'. It is familiar and they have talked a good game for a long time. But for me personally, CV was the game changer. While everyone's basic rights were being trampled on, small business was being destroyed, etc., they were impotent. By choice. They. Did. Nothing. The very things they proclaim to stand for, they ignored, yet they will pull out the flag and use people's patriotism and love of country to stay in power. It is like a bad boyfriend who constantly comes back and says things are really, really going to change this time, pinky swear. Sorry, not putting on my makeup to cover the bruises for you anymore.
Remember the movie Major League? When the Indians are trailing, 2-0, late in the final game, the player Pedro Cerrano, who is into voodoo, swings and misses at two pitches because he can't hit anything other than a fast ball? And the entire season, he has been defending his beliefs?
Cerrano: “I go to you. I stick up for you. But you no help me now, I say ‘Fuck you, Jobu.’ I do it myself.” and he does it.
Jobu = RINOS
