Norquist in a nutshell.

Someday someone will write a dark history a farce, really of how he managed to bring nearly all of the Republican Party to heel, compelling legislator upon legislator to lash themselves to his no-new-taxes pledge. Until then well have to content ourselves with his misfortune over the last few days. No sooner had a nation digested its turkey than his goose began to be cooked. The spreading rebellion in the Republican ranks was manifest on the post-Thanksgiving Sunday talk shows.

1. A simple picture of Norquist would suffice for that post title.

And, it's not Norquist who has great power, it's his donors who will pragmatically move away from him and his single issue still under their paradigm of money over people instead of people over money.

2. So he rides Amtrak?

The very same Amtrak that he and his loony pals claim is a bottomless taxpayer money pit?

Too bad the writer didn't push him out in front of it.
