Surrogates Gone Wild * Grover Norquist
Grover Norquist went to the Geraldine Ferraro school of politics. I must admit that I never heard of Grover Norquist before today. He doesn't hang out in many of the same places as people of African descent. It turns out that Grover Norquist is a conservative activist who specializes in promoting an anti-tax agenda.
Anyhow, Norquist dropped by The Times' Washington bureau to give his negative critique of Obama's liberal stances on economic issues and other matters, he termed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee "John Kerry with a tan."
It appears that John McCain and his surrogates are still struggling with the concept that they are getting beat-down by a person of African descent in this election cycle. Apparently it would make them feel better to think of Barack Obama as a white guy with a tan ... or as Karl Rove recently claimed, as a country club elitist leaning against the wall talking about folks.
Is this all that John McCain and his surrogates can bring to the table? Can John McCain keep the November election from becoming a blowout in favor of Obama? What say u?
