The Tooth Fairy Says Grover’s Over!
Daryl Rowland, functionary for an earnest entity called The Civic Commons, pardons Republican pols past and present for just about Everything.
“In the same way that McCarthyism now largely overshadows the early days of the Eisenhower administration, the W. Bush and Obama years will be seen as the stage on which Grover Norquist’s domination of domestic policy took place.”
Pretty much content and context free “problem solving” like Rowland’s requires magical bipartisan fairies to come together, and for that to occur you’ve got to absolve office holders of complicity in McCarthyism & Groverism.
Writing of course for the Huffington Post, Rowland finds that much Republican anti-tax rhetoric been insincere! All the while apparently they were prisoners of Grover Norquist’s “simple, clean narrative,” but now everything’s going to be great! Lions of the Senate like Saxby Chambliss have dropped hints they might like some new money in the till, and Rowland proclaims an new Era of Good Feeling.
While for some reason name-checking Cardinal Richelieu, Rasputin, Steve Jobs and the Wicked Witch of the West.
