Grover Norquist Controls the Media Message to 'Neuter' the Democrats

Pamela Leavey:

Grover Norquist thinks he has a way to "fix" the Democrats. He'd like to neuter them. Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, actually has it all figured out and he’s been working it for some time now.

E.J. Dionne reported in his column Tuesday, that "stakes in politics are about to get a lot higher." In A GOP Plan to 'Fix' the Democrats, Dionne says, "their quest is persuading Democrats, or at least a significant number in their ranks, to accept long-term minority status." While most of Dionne's column was focused Tom DeLay, the comment from Grover Norquist at the end of the column was most telling . . .

"Once the minority of House and Senate are comfortable in their minority status, they will have no problem socializing with the Republicans," he told Richard Leiby of The Post. "Any farmer will tell you that certain animals run around and are unpleasant. But when they've been 'fixed,' then they are happy and sedate. They are contented and cheerful."

Norquist has been very busy the past few years making certain that he can indeed "fix" the Democrats. As a matter of fact, if anyone wonders just what has happened to the media, aka MSM or the Republican Noise Machine, the answer to that was in the May issue of Vanity Fair magazine.
