Jargon watch: the press discovers Grover Norquist, again.


--July 25, 2005, "The Ringleader," The New Yorker

"Norquist loves to declaim. He refers to Democrtas as 'the enemy'; he has described bipartisanship as 'date rape'; and he likes to talk about reducing the federal government so much that he could 'drown it in a bathtub.'"

--January/February 2004, "The Soul of the New Machine," Mother Jones

--January 12, 2004, "Sowing the Seeds of GOP Domination," The Washington Post

"In the past, Norquist has said he wants to shrink government down to the size where you could drown it in a bathtub.'"



--June 1, 2001 , "Norquist's power high, profile low," USA Today

--May 14, 2001, "Graver Norquist: 'Field Marshal' of the Bush Plan" The Nation

"'My goal is to cut government in half in 25 years,' he says, 'to get it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub.'"


--August 2000, Gang of Five, by Nina Easton (book)




--June 9, 1997, "What I Sold at the Revolution," The New Republic

--May 1997, Whatever it Takes, Elizabeth Drew (book)
