Cheap Date conservatives
Listening to the radio and looking around the Internet today I see lots of Republicans insisting that they’re going to have to see more evidence of McCain’s conservatism before they can support him. Bay Buchanan, who worked on the Romney campaign, said if McCain gave Romney a good speaking slot at the Republican convention and chose a conservative as vice president, she could support him. Wow, dinner AND a movie!
We need a name for these people who are ready to hop in the sack with John as long as he assures them he’ll still respect them in the morning, and I think you’ve already come up with it: “Cheap Date Conservatives.”
I may have touched on the idea (here and here), but Paul K. has given it a name.

If I could turn the page
In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes
But I couldn’t find a way
So I’ll settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(you can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies.
