Norquist Watch

This is kind of funny, in a way:

A number of conservatives are seething over the fact that Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR), was the featured speaker at a fund-raising event for a group of homosexual Republicans last weekend. One pro-family leader called Norquist's appearance "an act of utter betrayal."

Norquist was the main attraction at the "Grand Ol' Party," the largest fund-raising event of the year for the Dallas, Tex., chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, a homosexual advocacy group within the GOP.

On the other hand, it certainly reveals in stark detail the fault line between the "cultural conservatives," who are mostly just nuts, and the "business Republicans" who use them to win elections. Luckily for the "business Republicans," the crazies are mostly too stupid to notice they're being used and then hung out to dry.
