    Since when do we care if Norquist's pledge is violated?

    I don't pander.

    Enagaged activism wins elections. 100 million words on liberal/progressive websites gets beat by one new GOP voter casting their vote.

      They've consistently valued their pledge to a single private citizen over their pledge to their country and their constituency.  Let them pour barbeque sauce over that pledge and eat it for all that I care.

        Something we all have to remember is to resist the temptation to honor their comments with a reply.

        When your child says something stoopit... don't elevate it to a level of significance by engaging it.
        Let it die on the ground floundering of it's own lack of oxygen.

        I respect the OP of the thread/diary, but I am entirely enraged that the notion was even "recognized" and "worthy" of discussion amongst adults.
