At the Conservative Political Action Conference yesterday, right-wing activist and anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist urged conservatives not to work to accomplish anything in the current Congress.
“Get married, develop a hobby, learn to belly dance, learn to golf — you know, we got two years free, but we gotta spend time and effort playing defense here,” Norquist said. “Our job is to say ‘no, no, no, no’ for two years.”
Norquist predicted, “People are gonna go, ‘oh maybe this bill isn’t as bad as it looks.'” But he warned, “Don’t eat it, don’t swallow it, don’t touch it. Nothing good passes this Congress.”
Anyone want to lay odds on the chances of tough climate change legislation emerging from that environment?
