Just when you think that Grover Norquist can sink no lower, he opens his mouth. In an interview with Spanish paper El Mundo, Norquist hit a new low.
When asked about if he thought Democratic Party was coming to an end Norquist told Pablo Pardo of El Mundo:
"Yes, because in addition their demographic base is shrinking. Each year, 2 million people who fought in the Second World War and lived through the Great Depression die. This generation has been an exeception in American history, because it has defended anti-American policies. They voted for the creation of the welfare state and obligatory military service. They are the base of the Democratic Party. And they are dying. And, at the same time, all the time more Americans have stocks. That makes them defend the interests of business, because it is their own interest. Because of that, it's impossible to bring to the fore policies of social hate, of class warfare."
That's right, the Bush camp is cheering on the death of America's Greatest Generation. Are they trying to channel the spirit of Joseph McCarthy?
Have they no sense of shame?
