Huckabee: We should ‘outlaw’ the term RINO from the GOP





Someone’s getting a bit touchy:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" — "Republican in Name Only" — in the Republican Party.

The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names.

"Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one’s purity.

Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him.

I can’t figure out why this would upset the Huckster so much that he wants to ban it from "the vernacular of the party". Unless, that is, because it struck a nerve.
