    My question is how did Grover Norquist come to have so much power that all these Republican elected, signed a pledge to him. Isn’t their first loyalty to the U.S. citizen and in cultivating a government that takes care of essential business that the U.S. needs to prosper, that takes the needs of growing a prosperous middle class a top priority and of helping poor people to have a chance at more economic security?

    Those are the democratic talking points. The pledge is actually a “tax pledge,” not to raise taxes but work for economic prosperity by cutting government spending. Who is right? That is the trillion dollar question at the moment…

    The question is 99 and 44/100% pure what????

    Ditto your sentiments. Isn’t he obnoxious though? He irritates me almost as much as Nancy Pelosi when she talks. Aside from instituting term limits, I think it should be a felony to lobby members of congress. It would be a good start. Oh yeah, limiting the spending on elections severely and limiting campaigns to 6 months would help as well.

    “Poopy-Head” maybe?

    But does he still float? Depends on what you believe he is. If you believe he’s a bar of Ivory soap he’ll float. Grov will float alright, although it’s because I think he’s a turd!

    Right idea. I’d have used more “earthy” language.

    Did he ever float ? Or did he just sink the party ?

    “Sit” does float, especially when full of fatty waste.

    Another example of how the right has sold out the idea of thinking for themselves and are led around by the nose by this incompetent.

    I’ve made a lot of errors in judgment, lately, here and at work so this post is probably unnecessary. This is a busy cartoon, kind of like those in the old “Smokey Stover” strips.
    .
    Ivory (brand) Soap advertisements touted that it was “99-44/100 percent pure. It floats.” Referring to the wealthy 99 percent, also referring to ivory color (white)?
    .
    Ivory Soap has a lot of air in it, so it floats. And since it’s less dense than regular soaps you pay for the air. It’s less expensive per bar, but you get the same amount of actual soap in two bars as in one regular bar, so the cost is about the same. It’s all an advertising gimmick.
    .
    “Mr. Bubble” was, and probably still is, a brand of powdered bubble bath for children. Referring to Obama’s less substantial quality in his policies?
    .
    This is why I’m known as “The Fount of Useless Information.” It’s a curse, sometimes, because people ask me trivia questions and I can’t rest until I remember the information. Every year, it takes longer.
    .
    Also, it might be suggested that Norquist and his ideas are no longer afloat, and he’s about to go down the drain.

    Nah. The cartoon is clearly showing who is currently getting “drowned in the bathtub.” Norquist was originally talking about drowning the USA, patriot that he is. I love Bors’ old cartoon about Santorum: “Our goal is to make government small enough that women don’t notice it’s in their uterus.”

    Lose that baby with the bath water. And no, he doesn’t float, hold water, or stand up to the “pure” label.

    There are some things that could be done to reduce the ridiculous amount of influence that lobbyists have over Congress:
    -
    First, all legislators and their staffs should be prohibited from working for any lobbyist for a period of several years after employment in Congress. This would eliminate a very powerful reward that lobbyists can offer as an inducement to change laws.
    -
    Insider trading by legislators, their staffs, families and friends should be prohibited.
    -
    Legislators and their staffs should be prohibited from working for industries who benefit by legislation — tricky to legislate, but could be effectively accomplished.
    -
    This would result in better legislation — and might even raise Congress’ approval ratings to double digits.
