What a Guy!

Got to thinking about Grover Norquist (the hero of the republicans, teapartiers, right wing and everyone conservative) and thought I would look just a little deeper.

Come to find out this guy, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform  (ATR) and who said "When I became 21 I decided that nobody learned anything about politics after the age of 21" so you know at what age his intellect and maturity stopped.

Among his credentials are: worked with Oliver North and his efforts with the Nicaraguan contras, worked with Newt Gingrich on the contract with America, was an associate of Jack Abramoff and associated with his Indian lobbying scandal, and has been on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and American conservative Union. Also he has close connections to THE Tom Delay!

He's the guy that said " I'm not in favor of abolishing government. I just want to shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub."

He's been asked to reveal his financial contributors, but refuses to do so, but it has been reported that the biggest proportion of his budget comes from just two multimillionaires. 

This is the guy that the right wing has followed and signed pledges to for the past thirty or so years.

Makes you want to jump right in line, don't it?
