Human Events lists the "Top 10 RINO's" (Republican In Name Only), but who are the "DINO's"?

Human Events has a list of the top 10 donkeys in elephant clothing, known as “RINO’s”. No real surprises there.

2. Sen. Olympia Snowe (Maine)

3. Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.)

4. Sen. Susan Collins (Maine)

5. Rep. Christopher Shays (Conn.)

6. Gov. George Pataki (N.Y.)

7. Rep. Sherwood Boehlert (N.Y.)

8. Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.)

9. Rep. Michael Castle (Del.)

10. Rep. Jim Leach (Iowa)
