I didn't discredit your opinion entirely. I said it was hard to lend any weight to you not refuting RollingThundr's comments on responsibility and budgets when you were not aware of a pledge stating "no compromise" signed by the majority of Republicans.
For the record I didn't say I was unaware of the "pledge" - I was. I found it symbolic and meaningless and basically a non-issue. "Read my lips - no new taxes!" ring a bell? I didn't know who specifically this Norquist character was. When I looked into it, it started sounding like the same boogeyman crap the right is always pitching about billionaire leftist George Soros. Like I said, not interested.
Knew about the pledge but didn't know about the guy who created the pledge. Ah well then...
I regret mentioning his name because you're right, boogeymen are silly. I just felt that more people are familiar with "Norquist" than "Americans for Tax Reform" and the "Taxpayer Protection Pledge". But I do take major issue with the pledge itself and it's not just symbolic. Going against it gets you labeled a RINO (their term).
You should stick to Wikipedia and a good mix of neutral international news. Typing "Norquist" in Google and ending up with a bunch of crazy liberal political blogs is not optimal. Let's just deal with the facts.
Sadly there is no article dealing with conspiracy theories on Norquist. As far as I know he's just a regular dude who hates taxes and wields a lot of influence in the GOP/Tea Party, haven't run across any crazy ideas about him yet.
