Arch Druid: Please Define ‘RINO’

I am not going to transcribe Larry Kettle’s letter today, 31 January 2014, “RINOS:  The fewer, the merrier.”  It is the typical diatribe that is actually not worth repeating.  Instead, I am going to suggest a few things about what “RINO” has come to mean:  Herb Huseland’s “My Turn” column in the same Coeur d’Alene Press regarded GOP political extremes in particular, to be more of a religion.  If you weren’t solidly in support of it, then you must be an apostate.  I’ll agree with him to that extent.  Only, every few days, weeks, months, or years; the GOP keep shifting the goal post on where they want the political/religious platform to be.  Anyone who was originally satisfied with where those goal posts once stood, would become a new apostate with this abrupt change in the political climate!/Arch Druid. More here.

Question: What's your definition of 'RINO'?
