While liberal propaganda blabbermouths like Jon Ralston worship the ground walked on by liberal RINO (Republican in Name Only) Gov. Brian Sandoval and his liberal RINO enablers in the Legislature for shoving the largest tax hike in Nevada’s history up our collective wazoos in the recently completed session, the real Republicans over at the Nye County GOP ripped America’s Worst Governor and Assemblyman James Oscarson a new one at a special meeting held in Pahrump this morning.
Actually, they did more than that. They essentially threw them out of the party!
But in case you missed what I wrote earlier this week about Assemblyman Judas Benedict-Arnold Oscarson, Las Vegas Review-Journal columnist John L. Smith this morning summed things up nicely…
“Although some conservatives suspected Oscarson was secretly pretty squishy politically, his late-session defection invited a large target to be painted on his back. By Sunday, he began taking fire.
“Prolific right-wing political blogger Chuck Muth, the Luca Brasi of the Republican Assembly’s staunchly conservative mob, went after Oscarson with something called a “Brush Fire Alert.”
“’Fresh off his ‘useful idiot’ performance as a member of the Not-So-Great-Eight in killing ‘campus carry’ for this session, Assemblyman James Oscarson on Saturday joined the ranks of Republican sell-outs supporting Gov. Brian ‘America’s Worst Governor’ Sandoval’s $1.5 billion tax hike,’ Muth roared, exhorting Nye County Republicans to contact Oscarson immediately to remind him of his betrayal to conservative political principles, God, flag and so forth.
“Measured, Muth ain’t. He plays a key role in keeping the Legislature’s conservative soldiers in line, in no small part by reminding them they’ll get whacked if they even consider raising a tax or questioning whether a company doing business in Nevada is paying its fair share. If they go sideways, Muth calls them a RINO (Republican in Name Only) or something more colorful.
“Except, according to the cover of his website, Oscarson’s not even a RINO. There’s scant mention of his Republican Party status. That, too, is likely to get him vilified by the locals who voted for him believing he was going to hold the line on taxes.”
Vilified, rightly so, indeed.
Which brings us to the resolution passed unanimously by the Nye County Republican Party this morning, in which Sandoval and Oscarson were accused of defrauding and betraying the voters of Nye County. As such, they were stripped of ceremonial membership in the body.
Here’s the resolution in its entirety…

If only the other three county GOP’s where the other dozen sell-outs graze – Clark, Washoe and Carson City – had the strength of their convictions to step up, call a RINO a RINO and toss the SandRINOvistas out on their cans.
