    NOT racist at all is it Norggy!

    There is also the keeping black slaves on leashes, and that buffoonery.  But you weren't going there either, were you Grover?!

      It's common vernacular, like bringing a gun to a knife fight. I thought the "can't pronounce" comment was a lot more racist.

      However, if you want one more reason to think Grover Norquist is an evil man, that's not a bad choice.

      Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      •  I heard about his comment last week, and that was (4+ / 0-)

        my first reaction (monkey and slavery) . . . if he had made the comment in isolation of the other GOP dog whistles I might agree with you - but so soon after this election where they were blowing a racism brass band, I can't see it any other way.

          I normally have a pretty thick skin on these types of comments, and I think reactions sometimes get overblown.

          But keeping him on a "very short leash"?!  The President of the United States?  Who happens to be black?

          Wow, those words are wildly offensive, and I'm sure very carefully chosen.

          What an ass.

        •  my first reaction also (1+ / 0-)
