So yesterday, a lot of Republicans voted to increase taxes.
After letting them expire so that they could claim that it was Obama's fault.
Poor Grover seems to be in denial about this.
Does yesterday's vote finally crack the hold that Norquist has on the Republican party?
http://www.politicususa.com/grover-n...on-pledge.htmlLast night, Norquist seemed to undermine some of Obama’s staunchest opponents on Capitol Hill when he tweeted,
The Bush tax cuts lapsed at midnight last night. Every R voting for Senate bill is cutting taxes and keeping his/her pledge.

At least one reader seemed to notice this and tweeted in response,
@GroverNorquist everyone republican who is voting for this measure is punching you square in the mouth. hope your ears bleed.
Andrea Mitchell wasn't buying his delusional nonsense.
http://www.mediaite.com/tv/andrea-mi...or-a-tax-hike/“Wait a second,” Mitchell interjected with a laugh. “We’re not living in the Alice in Wonderland world here. There is a tax increase for wealthy Americans. It’s literally a tax increase. Rates are up.”
And even Joe Scarboro was shaking his head over Norquist's inability to see that he had been dealt a serious, if not fatal blow.
