How Did We Get Here?

July 7th, 2011

Deval Patrick may have provided the answer in a recent Washington Post column:

"At our 25th college reunion in 2003, Grover Norquist — the brain and able spokesman for the radical right — and I, along with other classmates who had been in public or political life, participated in a lively panel discussion about politics. During his presentation, Norquist explained why he believed that there would be a permanent Republican majority in America. One person interrupted, as I recall, and said, "C’mon, Grover, surely one day a Democrat will win the White House."

Norquist immediately replied: “We will make it so that a Democrat cannot govern as a Democrat."

So they have.
