Ribble most recent Republican to break with Norquist
It would be nice if there were a movement amongst conservative Republicans to become independent of the ridiculous panoply of “pledges” and “promises” that have become the touchstone of conservative politics. If I know that a politician is independent of these silly positions, I will be more comfortable considering them as candidates for public office. I might not be any more likely to vote for them, but I will be able to consider their positions as somewhat intellectually honest.
I am tired of unelected fools such as Norquist holding sway over elected fools.
