Mark Tapscott: Has the GOP Lost Its Soul?
Saturday, August 13, 2005
Mark Tapscott: Has the GOP Lost Its Soul?: "President Reagan often said it�s hard to recall that you came to drain the swamp when you�re up to your armpits in alligators. Republicans like Rep. Don Young of Alaska would rather use your tax dollars to build a scenic bridge to the swamp. Hard as it is to believe, Young is more in tune with the GOP that rules Congress today than the former president who restored the party to national power in 1980 when he won the White House and a Republican Senate. Their differences are nowhere more evident than on limiting government and reducing federal spending. Reagan said in his first inaugural speech that �government is not the solution to our problem, government is the problem.� Today, Young crows about the $286.4 billion transportation bill to The New York Times, saying he �stuffed it like a turkey.�"

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
