Grover Norquist (Americans for Tax Reform):

Our goal is to inflict pain. It is not enough to win; it has to be a painful and devastating defeat. We’re sending a message here. It is like when the king would take his opponent’s head and spike it on a pole for everyone to see.”

“Bipartisanship is another name for date rape.”

“We are trying to change the tones in the state capitals – and turn them toward bitter nastiness and partisanship.”

“I don’t want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to a size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.”

“Republican-led redistricting in Texas will add an additional five to seven Republican House seats over the next few cycles. Redistricting in Texas and throughout the country ensures that Republicans will continue to control the House through 2012.”

“It is exactly the Stenholms of the world who will disappear, the moderate Democrats. They will go so that no Texan need grow up thinking that being a Democrat is acceptable behavior.”

“We will hunt these liberal groups down one by one and extinguish their funding sources.”

“The privatization of Social Security will have the added benefit of protecting corporations because the public will view Democrats’ attacks on corporations as hurting their personal retirement futures.”

“Once the minority of House and Senate are comfortable in their minority status, they will have no problem socializing with the Republicans. 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. They don’t go around peeing on the furniture and such.”

Members of the 113th Congress who make common cause with Norquist
by signing his “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”
