Will loyal members inform on others for harboring suspiciously moderate views? Will anyone judged guilty have to wear a sign saying “Republican In Name Only” as penance? Will there be re-education camps? Will deviationists face the Enhanced Interrogation Technique of being forced to listen to the wit and wisdom of Glenn Beck, at ear-splitting volume, for days on end?
Or worse: When Sarah Palin’s memoir, “Going Rogue,” hits bookstores later this month, will the ideologically impure be required to read — and commit to memory — every golden word? Her publisher might consider culling the highlights into a pocket edition. That way, any Republican caught without a copy of “Quotations From Chairman Sarah” could be summarily expelled from the party.
