    Yes. They have no shame, except if they get caught with their penis in somebody's butthole. Especially "drown government in the bathtub" Norquist.

    I will have a vice president who will not conduct secret meetings with polluters to rewrite our environmental laws -John Kerry

    •  The question was more rhetorical than not (4.00)
      but seriously going after the Greatest Generation.  That just seems to cross the line.  The sad thing about it is I would never have known about this if it hadn't been linked to by a Spanish site I visit.  How mch of this stuff just floats away?

        My grandfather, a veteran of the navy in the Pacific theater, is a staunch Republican, in Ohio no less; I guess it's appropriate for Norquist to be alienating him.  

        Maybe someone on our side mastered the art of mind control and is having a bit of fun.  I guess I should put on a nice shiny hat in case there's retaliation...

          This little tidbit isn't going to float away.  Yay for blogs!  This strikes me as potentially similar to Trent Lott--his comment nearly went down the river Lethe, but blogs kept it swirling in an eddy until it got sprayed all over the place.  It happened once; I hope it happens again.

          I hope you're sending this quote to him!

    •  Norquist is the center of the VRWC (none)
      His weekly meetings with the anti-government, fringy conservatives are the engine of destruction of our politics.

      I can't think of someone other than Norquist and Delay that have done more damage to our country, and now he's saying that anybody that supports any government activity is anti-democratic.

      What horsecrap!

      •  Grover Norquist: 'Field Marshal' of the Bush Plan (none)
        4/26/2001

        It's early April, tax time, and Grover Norquist is moving into high gear. The President's $1.6 trillion tax cut package is working its way through Congress, and Norquist--president of Americans for Tax Reform and arguably Washington's leading right-wing strategist--is rushing from meetings on Capitol Hill to strategy sessions with antitax activists. One minute he's putting the finishing touches on planned demonstrations in Washington and all fifty state capitals on tax-return filing day; the next he is juggling appearances on right-wing talk-radio shows and stints on MSNBC and Fox. And, as he has for nearly eight years, Norquist is coordinating the agenda for his signature event, the regular "Wednesday meeting" that draws more than a hundred representatives of conservative groups to a standing-room-only conference room at his organization's L Street offices.

      •  Who exactly attends these meetings? (none)
        We hear so much the infamous Wednesday meetings and how they draw crowds of influential people, but who exactly are these "influential people?"  Let's have some names and creds!

        "We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals -- and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship." - Grover Norquist
