"I Have Carried on Multiple Affairs With Numerous Kinds of Taxes"

Grover Norquist effectively puts himself beyond mockery with this video for The Onion.

Norquist is chair of the annual "Funniest Celebrity in D.C." stand-up contest, which he always performs in, too. What progressives probably need is for a CAP or Brookings spokesman to develop a sense of humor and start making zingers when asked for quotes. People notice. (I wonder if Norquist's joke here is a bid for a Saturday Night Live spot; I talked to him after SNL had included him in a sketch about the president's list of people more powerful him, and he remembered that the show's head writer, Seth Myers, had been spooked by his presence at a Time 100 panel.)
