This guy has been an absolute disaster for governance in America. And in spite of that, most Rushpubliscums kiss his ass on a regular basis.
There is one Rushpubliscum, however, who refuses to grovel at Grover’s feet. Frank Wolf of Virginia has absolutely no use for Grover, and he isn’t shy about saying so.
It’s really sad, that Frank Wolf appears to be the only member of the Rushpubliscum Party who hasn’t been scared shitless by this terrorist. I guess it tells you a lot about the collective cojones of the Rushpubliscum Party-as in, you’d have trouble filling a thimble up with them.
This is why I get so irritated at Obama. He lets these pussy bully punks force him into corner after corner.
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) unleashed a verbal fusillade on Anti-Tax Guru Grover Norquist Tuesday, calling him out as the main political force behind Washington gridlock.
Wolf took the House floor to lambaste Norquist’s pledge, a promise not to raise taxes that all but six Republicans in Congress have signed, accusing him of using it to advance other pet issues that most Republicans — if not most voters — do not support.
In addition, Wolf excoriated Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, for his associations with “unsavory people and groups out of the mainstream.”
“I also believe that Mr. Norquist has used the ATR pledge as leverage to advance many other issues that many Americans would find inappropriate, and when taken as a whole should give people pause.”
Wolf specifically highlighted Norquist’s connections to disgraced GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his lobbying on behalf of Fannie Mae.
“Mr. Abramoff essentially laundered money through ATR, and Mr. Norquist knew it,” Wolf said.
But Wolf also took Norquist to task for pre-9/11 lobbying of behalf of Abdurahman Alamoudi, who is serving 23 years in jail for his ties to terrorists, and Sami Al-Arian, who pleaded guilty to a conspiracy to help a “designated terrorist” organization. In addition, Wolf slammed Norquist for his outspoken advocacy for moving Guantanamo detainees to the United States, including Khaled Sheik Mohammed to New York City for trial.
“I want to be clear: I raise these issues not just because Mr. Norquist’s associates may be unsavory people,” Wolf said. “There are many lobbyists in Washington who represent clients of all stripes and backgrounds. But my concern arises when the appearances of impropriety are raised over and over again with a person who has such influence over public policy. That, I believe, should give any fair-minded person pause.”
Wolf is wrong only about Norquists’s weird desire (for his ilk) to adhere to the US Constitution. But he’s right on the rest of it; Norquists’s associations, specifically with Abramoff, ought to be enough to give any thinking person pause.
The problem is, there are few thinking people left in the Rushpubliscum Party. Grover and his pal Limbaugh pretty much drove them out some time ago.
