Grover vs. The Bigots

GROVER vs. THE BIGOTS….Grover Norquist is famous for the anti-tax pledge that he presents to every Republican running for national office: you either sign his statement pledging never to raise taxes, or else the hounds of hell will oppose your election, your reelection, and your every waking moment in office.

Guess what? It turns out that some Republicans have a pledge of their own, and they want Norquist to sign it. Say it with me: “I will never, ever, talk to gay people again. They’re yucky.”

Lovely, isn’t it? With any luck, Grover and the homophobes will rip each other’s bodies to shreds and leave them for the vultures to feed on. With any luck.
