  •  Alright well... (none)
    ...if it can be shown that Norquist is truly directly connected and that this administration should be specifically responsible for his personal views, so be it.  From what I know though, he's just a well connected Republican and while likely tied to the administration probably only in a "behind doors" way that doesn't allow us to surmise that they agree on this.

    Of course, I'm not saying we shouldn't criticize Norquist for what he said here.  I'm all for giving this more publicity and for holding him and whoever else can be clearly shown to agree with this accountable.  But at this point bringing the Bush administration into it seems premature.

    •  Good article reflecting Norquist's influence here (none)
      He's one of the few people they quote explaining Rove's strategy of sticking to the wingers rather than the moderates in this Boston Globe article from July.

    •  If the right (none)
      can tar the Kerry campaign for Whoopi Goldberg's off-color jokes about George Bush and her bush, then I see nothing wrong with calling out the right on Norquist's statements.

      This guy has the ear of the President...what else is he whispering in there? And it's known that GHW and GW Bush don't see eye to eye on many things; maybe GW gives statements like this some merit. We won't know till someone in the media grows some cojones of substantial size and asks the right questions.
