Granted, no-one in their right mind would choose Michelle Malkin as a political standard-bearer. Or gate-keeper for that matter. Nonetheless, there is the awkward fact that she's extremely popular amongst a certain class of American conservative. I've already suggested that organisations such as the Club for Growth and Americans for Tax Reform are just as much a part of the conservative problem as they are likely to contribute to any solution. Frighteningly Michelle Malkin agrees with me; thankfully her reasoning is different. The problem with Grover Norquist, you see, is that he's insufficiently right-wing. No, really.
Which brings us back to Grover Norquist and the unpleasant realities
that these strategists and rebranding gurus and RNC candidates don’t
want to talk about.
Party power player Norquist and the ATR propose to help fix the GOP’s problems.
Norquist is part of the problem.
Some of us have not forgotten how Norquist made common cause with
the left-wing zealots at People for the American Way in a forum bashing
the Patriot Act — and how he forged even more dangerous alliances in the name of Muslim GOP outreach.
