I like Christian Schneider. I’ve liked him ever since Dennis York hit the blogosphere. I like his humor. I like the fact that he can write “red meat” posts without their sounding red meat. So when he wrote the other day,
“Seems that Mark Neumann is claiming to be a ‘conservative,’ without really knowing what the word means.”
I thought, “Ah, here’s something good to know.”
Because, seemingly, I’m the only conservative blogger in Wisconsin who hasn’t made a clear statement of support for Scott Walker for governor. Or at least it seems that way. So I’m interested in this stuff. I like to vote my values.
So Schneider started off with Neumann’s crazy comment about Citizens United that if he (Neumann) had his way, all outside sources of information except from the candidates themselves would not be allowed.
He did temper his statements with “the Constitution does not allow that” which shows a.) it’s pesky (according to Schneider) or b.) he respects the Constitution.
Fair enough. I’m not too hot on limiting free speech.
So what else was there that proved Neumann was not conservative?
I read through the rest of the post.
That was it.
I’m sure Christian has other reasons for thinking Neumann is not a conservative, but in perusing Neumann’s site, I didn’t find any.
I guess I’ll have to wait a bit longer for Christian to post more proofs that Neumann is not a conservative.
Because this one doesn’t prove it to me.
I’m uncomfortable with litmus tests (liberals do it, too, but I don’t care about that) and labels of RINO if someone doesn’t fit into our grid of what should be conservative or Republican.
