What happens to otherwise sensible Republicans who…

… zip their lips every time the fetishists and crackpots in their party say something stupid or purge other reasonable people from the Party by labeling them “RINOs?”

They get T-Pawed. From JJ Miller:

“…Last year, when it became clear that Mitch Daniels and a few others weren’t going to run for president, and before Pawlenty himself dropped out, it might have been fair to call me a “Pawlenty leaner.” So I say this with no pleasure: His endorsement delivered nothing. Romney finished third in Minnesota, a distant third, no less. So if Romney wins the nomination, will anybody say that choosing Pawlenty for veep will turn Minnesota from Democratic blue to Republican red? Not after what just happened.”
