when they complain that "the same folks who like to denounce politicians because they can't be trusted are now praising politicians who openly admit they can't be trusted", in reference to the fauning attention being given to a bunch if people who have mostly been jerks but are now considering reversing their positions and doing something helpful.

One of the reasons so many republicans are not going to be in office in January is the very pledge which is at the center of this debate. If they hadn't followed the other lemmings off the cliff in the first place, they would not be clamoring to climb back up now. Let them be crushed by the weight of their own folly I say!

Grover Norquist, the pied-piper of American politics...

WSJ makes a further helpful point, when, after mocking those who succum to his whit, remark "The truth is that Mr. Norquist doesn't have such power. The voters do."

and the voters have spoken!

The rest of the editorial is a bunch of garbage, of course.

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.

  •  WSJ had really gone Downhill Fast (0+ / 0-)

    Since Rupert Murdoch bought them.  I've heard the previous owners think that, too.  I group Faux Spews, WSJ, and the British rags in the same group.   I wouldn't pay attention to WSJ if they were to publish the next winning powerball number on the front page.   But my neighbor subscribes to it, poor deluded Republican...

    He's a news item, he can probably be considered an historic figure. So there will be ink. And I will read it.

    And although his voice is exceptionally cringe-worthy, I can tolerate hearing it on the radio in that it offers the parlance, the nuance that is Norquist at his affectational, self-serving best.


    I mean, that guy is ugly!
    The stingy grinch actually looks at his veiny image in the mirror and grooms it, the sticky hair and slimy beardish growth, the beady eyes.
    The pretentious finery, UGH!
    Then he puts his glasses on and points his finger in the air and goes out to obstruct our economy through extortion, threats, and bully tactics with that upside-down frown on his face.

    We know what he looks like, Kos, help us start to forget!

    Try it for a month — no imagery of the blushy charlatan — let's see how it goes. His newsworthiness is slipping, let's just give it a little push. We can be visually Grover-free by years' end!

    [It's not Grover's first rodeo because he has never been to a rodeo and never will be. Rodeos already have enough horseshit.]
