President Bush, the first one, had this to say about Grover Norquist’s pledge to not raise taxes…
“The rigidity of those pledges is something I don’t like. The circumstances change and you can’t be wedded to some formula by Grover Norquist. It’s-who the hell is Grover Norquist, anyway?“
Not for nothing, but why the FUCK isn’t THAT the question candidates are asking? People like Norquist and Michael Quinn Sullivan talk a lot, but in the end their support is narrow and shallow. They don’t control votes in a meaningful way and they both have one critical problem… their ignorance regarding economic reality makes them effectively crazy.
So, thanks to President Bush for being the one to point out the obvious… WHO THE HELL IS GROVER NORQUIST?
