(The New York Times)   Why didn't Republican's stop and think when they signed their scrotums over to a Muppet that he might want to juggle with them someday?   ( nytimes.com) divider line

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.

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.

Every Republican in Congress has had to sign his pledge. While at the same time talking about liberty and democracy. And close to 50% of the country cheers them on. I honestly don't get this country. We think "pledge" means "liberty." We think "oligarchy" means "democracy."

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.
