Where have all the Conservatives gone?

I listened to the Republican Party's new Chairman, Michael Steele, give an interview yesterday. The one thing that struck me as most outstanding was how quickly he kicked the last vestiges of his conservative voter base to the curb. He was the most moderate, or as we are using these days, centrist candidate for the job. His words were, and I quote, "We need to go to the streets to get people to our party." HELLO, conservatives (the original voter base of the RNC) are not in the streets. They are at work, at home raising their children, paying their bills, holding the fabric of this country together...etc. This guy wants to compete with the Democrats for the same people. Peggy the Moocher, watch out, you are about to be wooed. Are you ready to live and defend the Constitution? Oh, wait, the RNC doesn't stand for that any more. Are you ready to reject big government? Oh, wait, the RNC doesn't stand for that any more, either. Wow, I'm not really sure what "song and dance" or "dog and pony" you are going to see, but I am sure it is going to be a whopper.

The one thing I was hoping to hear never came up in the interview. Why have Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, and Arlen Specter not been tossed into the street. They should be removed from the RNC and every dime they have EVER received for campaigning from the RNC should be reimbursed. The moment they decided to vote for a bill that our great-great-great grandchildren will still be paying for, they should have been, at least figuratively, tarred and feathered.
