Grover Norquist is Irrelevant

There are all sorts of post war Republican irrelevancies. Think of Reagan’s Trickle Down economics, Nixon’s dirty tricks, small government which always turns out to be a particularly large government, out of control military spending, Bush Jr.’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, The Pet Goat, the entire Bush family, and so on.

Grover Norquist Is Irrelevant.

And now that many Republican legislators are finally jumping from his ship, irrelevant as well is Grover Norquist, his Americans For Tax Reform and his infamous, so-called Taxpayer Protection Pledge which protects only the wealthiest 2% of taxpayers. Norquist has been credited, according to Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes for being responsible for modern Republican dogma and, as this appears to be the truth, Republican dogma is irrelevant, too. Are you a Republican, dear reader?  If so, you may now consider yourself IRRELEVANT!
