    I think you might be overestimating how much conservatives who are denying the necessity of the vaccine also care about insurance. These are the same people who think free healthcare is the government taking their freedoms and would rather be uninsured than have free healthcare.

    I mean, if they think Covid isn’t dangerous, why would they think they’d need insurance coverage for it?

    Since Trump has to be in the middle of everything, he threatened to primary every Republican that voted for the $1 trillion dollar infrastructure plan. Not because of any policy but because it will be a win for Biden. And in Trumpism world, that is as bad as it can get. Also, he upgraded Romney to SUPER RINO status.

    Considering the last few candidates he backed lost, I'm not sure that threat holds as much weight as he thinks.

    Especially with his acts to social media cut off.

    He can’t tell the Trump faithful to threaten and coerce people to vote for the trump-ordained candidate, at least not so quickly or easily.

    I'll go with Uber Rino. Ultra Rino sounds like a form for a Transformer.

    The GOP was simply not as petty as they have become. And Eisenhower wasn't a party creature anyway - as a general, he had an idea what to do and he had a plan how to do it.

    Pure rhino might better tap into his core demographic.
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    CPS will be mandatory for masks, though, not sure about rest of Illinois.

    Agreed, but I'm talking about current events. Cases are up nationwide, Florida is just the worst of the bunch. Think of it as "Florida Lives Matter" if you that makes any sense.

    Also the vaccination passport ban is being challenged. I'd like to see how that ends.

    And Uber Rino sounds like a Transformer that turns into a passenger car.

    I'm thinking more of a German tank used during WW2.

    Somewhat shockingly, there's a Rhino and a Rhinox, but no Ultra Rhino (or any other superlative).
