Bump

The liberty factions says:

Stebbins...implies there will be a litmus test for future candidates to get the liberty wing’s stamp of approval. “We’re not interested in electing any Republican that runs,” she said. “We want to choose a candidate that has principles.”

Whereas the establishment offers the following bowl of nothing-soup:

“We’ve got all kinds of things you can look at and analyze to death, but what we really need is somebody who can take our party forward to the future,” he said. “In my mind, the essence of that is remembering that we Republicans are here to provide leadership for our state and the betterment of our people.”

...in other words: don't worry about principles/issues/policies, don't analyze them to death (what are you some kind of nerd!), this is about leadership aaaaand wholesome stuff, puppies, support the troops...uh, America! blah blah blah noise
