Norquist admits: I wrote GOP Pledge when he was 12yrs old - GOP so dumb they sign it

The "People's" government is being held hostage by the Republicans in Congress who obstruct the People's work from getting done because they signed a "I hate the Government" Pledge that was literally written by a 12 year old.

Maybe everyone reading already knows this, but in February 2012, Grover Norquist admitted to Samantha Bee (the Daily Show) that he wrote the GOP Pledge when he was 12 years old.

The thing more puzzling to me is that Republican members of Congress actually signed and are happily beholden to a GD Pledge written by a 12 year old.

February 2012 interview with Samantha Bee:

NORQUIST: My team is winning and it can be taught to Harry Reid. He wanted a $2.5 trillion tax increase last year and he didn't get it.
BEE: Your team is winning? It's like you came up with this whole idea when you were twelve.

NORQUIST: It was something I came up with when I was twelve, to get a teacher to...

BEE: I'm sorry, what did you say? You came up with this idea when you were...

NORQUIST: Seventh grade.

BEE: ...in seventh grade?

BEE (off camera): Yes, the entire federal government is paralyzed because of a document, written by a twelve year old, in 1968.

1. Well a lot of them behave like three year olds so I guess he seems like some sort of a leader

 


What does it say about the rest of us if we allow it to continue? We're letting twelve(maybe) year olds run the country?

I am so embarrassed. Other nations look up to us, and we have allowed our politicians to make us look like fools.
