Grover Norquist at his obstructionist, disrespectful best. I really hope that any Sequestration deal that passes leaves him screaming in butthurt agony.

That alone deserves an upding

I don't remember seeing Grover on the ballot. Why are my elected officials listening to him again?

re: #1 researchok

I concur. This ideologue has done than anybody else to render the government impotent to deal with the aftermath of the late '08 financial meltdown. How many people have needlessly suffered or even died because this GOP lobby-monopolist and his teabagger puppets would rather bend over the poor and middle-class than see the 1%ers suffer a return to the tax rates of the Clinton administration?

Dear Grover,

That is all.

No love,
Me

That should read "has done more than anybody else." And this isn't the first time I somehow left out an entire word and not caught it when previewing. Wtf is the matter with me?

Because he's proven successful at creating primary challenges for and reducing the support given to candidates who violate his pledge. Anyone he deems to have done so he attacks in ugly person terms then works hard to ruin them. He's an intimidator, who reacts to any challenge with threats and derision.

Oops. Sorry about that! I figured the title of the video would be warning enough. My bad.

All members who have signed a pledge to Grover Norquist should be given the chance to renounce it, and if they refuse, expelled from Congress.

Period.

Not possible. It takes a 2/3rds vote of the relevant house to expel a member of Congress, and in the House of Representatives at least around 45% of the incoming Congress has taken the pledge. You'd have to get pledge taker to vote to expel themselves.

Aw, come on. I'm just pretending I'm a Republican living in my own fantasy world.

Half the people in the country do it, why not me too?

Correction: Less than half live in the Republican holo-deck per results from the last election.
