Grover Norquist v. Peter King
This was a rather dumb comment by Grover Norquist. The anti-tax zealot had this exchange with Piers Morgan about Rep. Peter King.
Norquist hit back, telling CNN's Piers Morgan, "I hope his wife understands the commitments last a little longer than two years or something." "That was a bit below the belt, Grover," Morgan objected.King fired back.
“I don’t think he’s ever met me, certainly he’s never met my wife. And he better hope he doesn’t. She’ll knock his head off," King told Politico.It is never a good idea to bring in spouses into political fights. King is one of the most prominent Republicans to break Norquist's anti-tax increase pledge. For this Norquist has called him a "weasel." Obviously, King did not kindly.
"I really don't care about Grover Norquist. It was a cheap thing to do," King said. "He's being a lowlife."Norquist thinks he can still bully elected Republicans and get them to yield. Thatdoesn't work anymore. A wiser man would play nice and learn how to console Republican fears over the leverage President Obama now has on taxes. Norquist is neither wise or nice.
