      There�s growing recognition of the problem of statist politicians who run as
      faux-conservatives in order to get elected. Arlen Spector was famous for
      morphing into less-of-a-statist every six years for decades�until a real
      conservative, Pat Toomey, forced him to admit he�s really a Democrat. In
      NY-23 Dede Scozzafava refused to sign a no-tax-increase pledge�and then did
      so (to great fanfare) after being overcome by a real conservative, Doug
      Hoffman (whereupon she came clean and endorsed the Democrat after dropping
      out of the race). Texas Gov. Rick Perry is currently reinventing himself as
      a states� rights conservative after increasing taxes and spending in Texas
      for years. And even ultra-liberal supporter of Barack Obama, Charlie
      Crist�the �Republican� governor of Florida�is now claiming that he�s a big
      conservative after being challenged (and surpassed) by Marco Rubio, a real
      conservative in Florida�s U.S. Senate race. Finally, there is the sad
      history of George W. Bush, who ran for President as a conservative . . . and
      then assisted the descent of Washington, DC into a full-blown leap off the
      cliff of socialism.

      But accurate language is death to the Political Class. Thus, terminology to
      describe fake conservative Republicans is expanding:

      First there was RINO�Republican In Name Only.

      Then came DIABLO�Democrat In All But Label Only.

      Now comes LIAR�Liberal Imitating A Republican.
