True, if you go back enough
But there aren't RINOs there like there are in Connecticut or Vermont.  Not similar to the DINOs in Oklahoma.

Wrong again, sorry
The average HI Republican is actually quite liberal by national standards; quite a few state legislators there would be laughed out of a Republican primary on the mainland. It's just that the state as a whole is so far to the left that they're still at the right fringe of the HI spectrum. I'd guess Lingle is at about the median of the HIGOP.

HI and OK would be very good inverse parallels if it weren't for the fact that HI Dems were largely organized from non-voters, whereas OK Republicans grew organically through party-switches and generational turnover. That made HI's transition much more abrupt and gave Republicans significantly less staying power.

I don't think that's true
Hawaii certainly has moderate Republicans, just like every blue state besides CA/OR/WA which have far fewer.  But it isn't the same as Oklahoma:

1) As Setsuna Mudo said, Henry had 70% approval.  Lingle's was around 50/50.

2) Obama won't be on the ballot, so there won't be downticket drag like the type that hurt Ben Chandler and Mark Critz, who both would have won if 2012 was a neutral midterm.

3) Oklahoma has been electing at least one Democrat to Congress every cycle of the last few.  OK-2 and some of OK-4 have FAR more Democrats than Hawaii has Republicans, percentage wise.
