Grover Norquist and Nussle.

Grover Norquist is a Washington Republican insider who makes Karl Rove look like Mother Theresa. He's the slimiest, most corrupt troll the right wing has ever produced.

Basic Bio: http://www.nndb.com/people/482/000049335/. At the bottom of the page you find links to the groups he's a part of. The most notorious is his position as president and founder of Americans for Tax Reform http://www.nndb.com/org/549/000049402/. If you click on the link, you'll see he's associated with the infamous right-ring ogre, Richard Scaife, and the lobbyist Jack Abramoff -- the one who is presently in deep doo-doo over influence peddling and ripping off his clients. Following the link to ATR, http://www.atr.org and fishing around, you come across what he's most famous or infamous for, the pledge to not raise taxes.

Nussle has signed the pledge: http://www.atr.org/pledge/national/incumbents.html.

Norquist has a peculiar attachment to Islamist groups. He is founder and President of the Islamic Institute http://www.islamicinstitute.org. What's interesting here is not what its web site says about itself, but what other web sites say about Norquist's Islamophilia.

http://www.danielpipes.org/blog/451 You should read this one fully. It ends this way: "if Norquist is indeed a convert to Islam, it could be that he is not just enabling the Islamist causes but is himself an Islamist."

This is a response to the last: http://badanalysis.com/catallaxy/?p=861.

The biographical site above speculates if Norquist is gay, and this site, http://isteve.blogspot.com/2005/04/how-many-gop-gunslingers-arent-gay.html, tries to dismiss it. But Norquist does seem to have married an Islamicist with some rather dubious connections. Is she his beard?

Norquist's association with Abramoff will likely be the cause of his fall, or at least the start of it. His thuggish ways with his no new taxes pledge list has earned him many enemies inside the Republican party. The very sharp, very long knives are waiting.

Anyway, just for the benefit of googlers searching on these terms, my eyes roll at the idea of handing out a press release with the headline:

Islamic Terror Linked Gay Muslim Endorses Nussle
