Grover Norquist On Barack Obama: He's "John Kerry With A Tan"


Oh Grover.

You small-minded, arrogant little f*ck.

Your days as a GOP "player" are over, if they ever existed in the first place.

And anyone who thinks that this guy has suction with Team McCain has rocks in their head.

Grab A Dictionary And Play Along!


Tom Hamburger and Peter Wallsten have a piece up in this morning's LA Times: GOP struggles to reinvent without losing itself.

We thought it would be fun to grab our dictionary and sort out some of our favorite graphs.

Like this one:

The difficulty of a swift reinvention was on display last week as the central players in Washington's conservative community gathered for their weekly strategy session, the Wednesday Meeting, held in a conference room of Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform organization.
In our dictionary under "out-of-touch & impotent" it says "see those old white guys".

And:
While reaching out to Latinos, McCain showed last week that he is fully aware of the risks that his immigration stance poses in alienating a vocal portion of conservative Republicans.
In our dictionary under "mouth breathing, shouting-at-the-rain xenophobes" it says "see those old white guys".

And:
Republican strategists who once sought to annihilate McCain for his independence are now enthusiastically backing his candidacy, offering strategic advice and affirmation of his conservative credentials. They include Bush's former senior strategist, Karl Rove; and Norquist, the anti-tax activist.
In our dictionary under "two guys who helped bury their client with an approval rating of 28%, didn't see the '06 Democrat romp coming, think that '08 is going to be fine so long as the Republicans are steady as she goes & wake-up each and every morning desperately wishing that it was 2002 again (and then acting like it was)" it says "see those two white guys".

And:
Late last week, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh castigated McCain for his "embrace of a radical environmental agenda," calling it a sign that the Republican Party "is abandoning conservatism, abandoning those things and those people that made it victorious."
In our dictionary under "might be living in a pharmaceutical haze and is definitely forgetting that the GOP abandoned its 'conservatism' 7 (or more) years ago with his loud, obnoxious and extraordinarily over-paid and over-pampered help" it says "see that white guy".

We love the dictionary. It brings such clarity to our thinking.

Snark.

Secretary Rice For VP?


Sure, if Team McCain wants to put a key architect of the Iraq War fiasco on their ticket and then spend the next 7 months talking all about it.

Which is why we can't understand all the (informed?) chatter.

Secretary Rice might have come around to "clear, build and hold" faster than the rest of the Bushies - but good heavens!

Think of the treasure trove of '02, '03, '04, '05 & '06 Sunday talk show appearances the DNC would have to work with on Ms. Rice.

McCain/Bush's Top Lieutenant '08! - It would make one hell of a yard sign.

Furthermore, the last time we looked, "cozying" up to Grover Norquist (especially in 2008) gets you approximately zilch with Team McCain.

We're just saying.

Being Grover Norquist Ain't What It Used To Be


Fred Thompson has joined John McCain and Rudy Giuliani and refused to sign Grover Norquist's (asinine) pledge against raising taxes.

Sam Youngman at The Hill has the story.

That's too bad for old Grover.

But score one for GAO head David Walker. No snark.
