So pathetic that they're tied to Norquist's whiny no tax hikes pledges. I understand being in principle as opposed to tax increases but signing a pledge? My god that's dumb. And honestly as much as I dislike social spending cuts, I'd hate the idea of a left wing version of Norquist doing the same. In a deficit, one shouldn't be signing a pledge to something that could help solve the problem.

The GOP has a soul left?

Nah. They sold it for a handful of magic beans at the turn of the century.

If you had told me about Norquist a few years ago, I would have accused you of stereotyping. The man is so cartoonish, it's horrifying.

If the GOP had a soul, Grover would win it easily. In fact, I think he already has. Nobody in the GOP is listening to Jeb Bush.

If Jeb Bush had run for president, he would have instantly disqualified himself with the GOP base by raising his hand when asked if he would accept a deal with $10 in budget cuts for every $1 in tax increases.

Well, Avalon is right to point out that Norquist is suffering defections, and that's a needful thing. The current budget battles do need to end and only a compromise will end them. The GOP is not going to win the Complete Victory needed for Republicans to have it all their own way on the budget (neither will the Democrats, BTW). That means a compromise will eventually be struck. Grover Norquist will either accede to this fact or he will be politically destroyed by it.
