So Who’s On The Far Right These Days?

SO WHO’S ON THE FAR RIGHT THESE DAYS?….The Washington Post’s Laura Blumenfeld had a long profile of ?ber-conservative lobbyist Grover Norquist today, and I just loved this quote:

“He is an impresario of the center-right,” the president’s strategist, Karl Rove, said in an interview. Rove said Norquist’s activists helped President Bush push trade promotion, tax cuts, judicial nominees and tort reform, among other items.

So Grover is now part of the center-right? And Blumenfeld passed this along with a straight face?

The mind reels.
