    Have Obama stand in front of all the tv cameras and call for Grover to 'release' all of the Pledge Signers so that DC can get a "fiscal cliff" compromise done.

    Place the heat lamp right over Grover's forehead. His whole tax pledge shit will crumble like week-old coffee cake.

    And Obama gets his deal done.

    And the repubs continue to fall deeper into disarray. YAY!

    •  Grover is a piece of granite. (0+ / 0-)

      There isn't any amount of heat that will melt that guy.

      For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus

      •  You're right. (0+ / 0-)

        That's the whole idea - to expose Grover and his whole agenda to the 'Murkin people who just got done voting against his entire reason for being. Expose him, disinfect him with sunshine...and he's gone like a vampire.

        •  not necessarily... (0+ / 0-)

          As the crazy tea party lady on this morning's Up With Chris Hayes suggested, she -- and many tea partyers, presumably -- believe that  the Norquist pledge is made directly to the Congressmember's constituents, rather than to Grover himself.  

          So all the tea partyers, who insist that the Founding Fathers' wishes, as interpreted by them and Judge Scalia, are an end-all and be-all, are inconsistent, unless somehow they think that the pledge is one of the Founding Fathers' long-lost wishes that somehow got excised from the Constitution, apparently.
