Top 10 RINO's (Republicans in Name Only)

1. Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R.I.)
Once approached by Democratic Leader Harry Reid to switch parties, Chafee has long supported liberal policies. He backs legal abortion, gay rights, federal-funded health care, strict environmental protections and a higher minimum wage. Opposes ANWR drilling. Also was the only Republican in Congress not to endorse the President’s reelection and one of three who tried to gut Bush’s tax cuts.
The rest of the Top 10 RINO's at Human Events Online.

Forget Republican/Democrat, the "chafe" on Chafee (R-RI) is that he doesn't know what he is.
As they say in Texas, "There’s nothing in the middle of the road but yellow lines and dead armadillos." - Matt Lewis
Joe Lieberman (D-CT), on the other hand, is more on the conservative side...and is unfortunately having to pander to the left to prepare for a re-election campaign. (see my next post on Thomas Sowell) I like to think Joe would have voted for Alito if his vote would have made the difference.

(if you didn't get the chance to read Lieberman's piece on Iraq a few months ago, it's an absolute must-read).
