A Thought on Grover Norquist

"I want to get government down to the size where you can drown it in the bathtub."

Famous words from Grover Norquist, anti-tax god and virulent anti-government wild man. My question to him: If you hate government so much, why are you so dependent on its existence for your own? The logical end of your campaign is to eradicate government altogether; what will you do when it's gone?


Update on Nov. 27 05: It's nice to see that even the guys on Grover's own team see that he's useless:

"When we asked [McCain's] staff for a comment on Norquist's fusillade against McCain, his chief of staff, Mark Salter, had a lot to say. 'In Norquist's world, the truth is for suckers. And it's as pointless to respond to him as it would be to respond to some street-corner schizophrenic,' Salter responded."

Yeah, baby!
