Knobbs: Republican's what?/Apostrophe rage!
silo123j: The fact that he made this up when he was 13 years old and is clinging to it like a check the box do you like me yes or no is annoying.The real pisser is how he was able to hamstring so many into signing it. It is like they are all stuck in freshman year of high school, unable to see that compromise is necessary to exact change and to move this country forward.
DarnoKonrad: Norquist is an ideologue, and as such, you can't reason with him. He wants one thing and one thing only, a tiny federal government, and in his mind the best way to achieve this is to starve it. Which I suppose is as valid as any viewpoint, but it's inherently undemocratic as he advocates we not pay for what people have voted to have. He's using tax policy to break the will of the electorate toward his end goal.
stoli n coke: However, he doesn't want to shrink government too much. He still wants it big enough to cover his salary and his taxpayer funded healthcare for life.
Zerochance: I think every single Republican that signed this asshole's pledge is unfit to hold office.They are elected representatives. The only pledge they need to uphold is their constitutional oath to their constituents. It is completely beyond the pale that they're signing loyalty pacts to a dickhead lobbyist with a shiatty idea.For this reason alone, they deserve to lose control of the House, and I hope they get shellacked in a couple of years. They've damn well earned it.
Knobbs: Republican's what?
enry: I heard Joe Scarborough (whom I respect a bit even if I don't agree with him) going off about how Norquist doesn't hold any power over the GOP and that the pledge is not to Norquist, but to constituents. "He's not the NRA" is what Joe said.Take a look at the board of directors for the NRA and you'll see at least one familiar name on there.

TheOther: There's no place for absolutists and absolutism in a democracy, which is designed for give-and-take, for compromise. That's one of the lessons of "Lincoln," which moviegoers are thronging to and intellectuals are swooning for precisely because it illuminates and validates the intrinsic and purposeful messiness of our system. It exalts flexibility. It venerates pragmatism. And I hope that Republicans and Democrats alike will keep those principles in mind as we approach the so-called fiscal cliff.Thieves loot your home, then want flexibility and pragmatism about repaying you? F*CK that.

Marcus Aurelius: Modern first world industrialized governments require roughly 20% of GDP to function properly. If Grover doesn't like that, he should move to Somalia or Afghanistan.
TV's Vinnie: Anyone who ever wavers in their seething hatred of Grover Norquist should watch the episode 60 Minutes ran on him (even though I doubt you can get through the whole segment without wanting to punch your monitor). He makes these smartass comments that are always followed up with that grin of his. It's like he knows that America is suffering and slowly starving to death, and he actually seem HAPPY about the suffering of Americans. The ghoulish little corksucker is actually enjoying our misery!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K25kqP0YdZ0
BitwiseShift: Once ducked out of going to a home featuring a meet and greet with Norquist. Never occurred to me to go and have him give a tour of the bathtubs.I'm still not sure what size tub he fits. He probably floats. And they called Rove a turd blossom.
I posted this in the redlit thread:The man deserves the most punishment society can meat out to one such as him - irrelevancy. Like Kirk Cameron, whose own obsessions drove him to the point of isolation from those whose support his ego depended upon.The idea of Grover Norquist on a public access cable talk show with a host who has no idea who he is or what he is talking about and is simply reading from the poorly written and grammatically incorrect cue cards has a certain appeal to me. The fact that Norquist would submit himself to such an indignity with the idea that surely someone out there is watching would make it almost worthwhile that I myself would be that someone, laughing him into obscurity with my own indignity of explaining to others around me who he is and why I find his appearance on such a program humorous.And then I would show up on the set with the bloody copy of Das Kapital signed by Elizabeth Warren, shot through with bullet holes from a semi-automatic assault rifle made legal to carry by his mortal enemy Obama and scream, "Behold! Dear leader, I have went forth and wrought vengeance upon that which offends thee! Might I ever fight mightily for your ideals and be fortunate to receive thy blessings and forever nurture that which you have striven to bequeath upon those deemed worthy to receive thy wisdom!"And then he would give me that look, and say,
"Come forth, my child! Receive my teachings and be made wise! Depart and spread that which you have learned, converting the unbelievers and wreaking my vengeance upon those who have betrayed me!"

Don't tell me you're surprised that Republicans are somewhat illiterate and, well, stupid. This is a party that shuns education, after all. I'm actually looking forward to the day that these people can be enchanted by me pulling a Bic lighter out of my pocket and showing them my Promethian control of fire.
