The Term "RINO" Loses It's Sting

I meant to get to this one yesterday -- but didn't.

Jim Geraghty has a really interesting post up at NRO. Check this out:
For almost every presidential candidate or major GOP figure, you can find a grassroots conservative blogger or media figure calling him or her a RINO:

Mitt Romney? RINO.

Tim Pawlenty? RINO.

Mike Huckabee? RINO.

Mitch Daniels? RINO.

Haley Barbour? RINO.

Jon Huntsman? RINO.

Newt Gingrich? RINO.

Chris Christie? RINO.

Michele Bachmann? RINO. Really.

Ron Paul? RINO.

Sarah Palin? On probation for her endorsement of Carly Fiorina.

Okay. I have yet to find anyone calling Herman Cain a RINO. And while Rick Santorum caught some flak for an off-the-cuff comment about Sarah Palin and balancing family and a campaign, I have yet to see someone labeling him “RINO.”

RINOhood, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

UPDATE: Spoke too soon on Santorum!
Wow. So, are we to assume that there is no candidate (except Herman Cain?) who is conservative Republican enough to run for President in 2012?

B-diddy, would you like to address any of these accusations individually, or should we simply assume that this post covered it all?
