    I mean seriously, who the fuck voted to put him in charge of tax policy for the United States of America?

    No one. Not a single person. Grover Norquist is the avatar of everything vile, corrupt, and wrong with our political system. He was not elected, yet he holds sway over an unacceptable number of our elected officials. I hope more people break that pledge. They should never have given it in the first place. It may not be against the law, but it sure as hell is against the spirit of representative democracy, of responsible governance, and of realistic fiscal policy. Republicans can be as anti-tax as they like, but when the rubber meets the road, they have to be free to govern responsibly. Mr. Norquist's pledge ties their hands and saddles the nation with a crippled legislature unable to take responsible actions when they become necessary.

    fuck that guy.

    Were I in Georgia, I would register republican just so I could vote for Chambliss in any primary where he faces a Norquist challenge. He shouldn't have signed the pledge in the first place, but its not right to let him lose his job for breaking it.

      in a primary.  Remember what he did to Max Cleland?

      Chambliss only proved he's a stopped clock.

        and normally, I wouldn't disagree, but I think it's more important to send a message to Grover and his ilk that they DON'T actually rule the world, and to other congressmen that they can break that fool pledge without too much to worry about.
