Rinos, Liberals, Rush Limbaugh and Jello Republicans

There is an acronym for moderate Republicans. It is RINO which stands for Republican In Name Only.

I have had a long-time affinity for Rhinos. My “crash” includes over 600 collectibles, toys and art. As a conservative and a Rhino collector, I resent the noble beast being degraded as an icon for liberalism (or even queers for that matter).

So I was happy to hear that Rush Limbaugh has accurately applied a new moniker for moderates (which is just another term for liberals who are ashamed of their liberalism). The word is “Jello” and it is appropriate and very descriptive.

The makers of Jello used a marketing slogan several years ago that said, “There’s always room for Jello” indicating that the dessert was light, non-filling and lacking substance. It is just a sugary sweet product with no real value. Just like Jello, moderates are transparent, unfirm, and shaky. They can be filled with puffy marshmallows and processed fruits and nuts. They are moldable. They come in a myriad of colors and flavors to appeal to any preference. And they melt down when the heat is on.

Please leave the poor rhinos alone and let’s start referring to the moderates as Jello Republicans.
