Didn't anyone watch newshour tonight?

This is just too good!!! Gwen Ifill was interviewing Grover Norquist(Mr. Drown it in a Bathtub) and Vin Weber. She was interviewing them on a number of issues, including Rush Limbaugh. I was only half listeing when I heard this exchange?

GWEN IFILL: Grover Norquist, the Republicans are at a crossroads. You did lose ground in the Congress this year. You lost ground, obviously, in the White House and governors mansions.

So how does the Republican Party now get itself back on track? This is the same dilemma Democrats faced not very long ago.

GROVER NORQUIST: Sure. Well, step one is we've removed the boat anchor that we were carrying around for the last eight years, and that was President Bush and his failure to focus on running the government and keeping it limited in its costs and what it's doing.

Boat anchor! Heh! I almost fell out of my chair!!

I'm wondering if they might be worried about what is being released from the Department of Justice?

In any event, I think we just had a glimpse of how the "new" republican party views George W. Bush!!

Sorry for the short diary. I'm going to see if I find some video of this exchange!

Here's a link to the PBS Clip. The exchange is near the end.

I'm looking for something on YouTube. This short exchange should be played over and over and over again!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
