Wood: Ward’s Comments Silly

Christie Wood: I understand Pachyderm was lively on Friday. I hear that Jeff Ward was the speaker and he declared that Deanna Goodlander and I are Rhino’s (RINOs). We are both office holders in non-partisian positions so his comments seem silly. You may remember I called upon Jeff a few months ago to correct a false statement he made about me in his newsletter. He claimed I attempted to connect the RR’s to the Aryan’s and was behind the PO Box comments. Wrong person but that did not impress Jeff. He decided I am worthy of his criticism anyway and decided not to make any corrections. Anyway…I have always been clear I am a moderate who chooses to work with all elected officials (Democrats too! Oh My!) and constituents, and will not feed from his purity trough. What a complete waste of valuable time.

Question: I contend that the worst “RINOs” in this area are the ones from the Far Right who are using the umbrella of the Republican Party to push the local party into Constutionalist/Libertarian/Birch water. What do you think?
