"Conservatives could learn a lot from Tiger Woods’ wife Elin, she said, I’ve had enough. We should take a page out of her playbook and take a 9-iron and smash the window out of big government.”He said this the day after Joseph Stack flew a single-engine Piper Cherokee into the Federal Building in Austin, Texas.
And while introducing Grover Norquist, one of the most famous anti-tax advocates, noted for the creation of the "Contract with America" Jed Babbin, editor of Human Events said:
"And let me just say, I'm really happy to see Grover today. He was getting a little testy in the past couple of weeks. And I was just really, really glad that it was not him identified as flying that airplane into the IRS building." (h/t TPM)

"I don't know if it's related but I can just sense not only in my election, but since being here in Washington, people are frustrated. They want transparency. They want their elected officials to be accountable and open and talk about the things affecting their daily lives. So I am not sure if there is a connection, I certainly hope not, but we need to do things better."Brown continued by saying that the action was "extreme," but that:
"No one likes paying taxes obviously."Steve Benen of the Monthly concluded that:
"So, let me get this straight. An anti-government nut flies an airplane into a building and Scott Brown thinks the incident reminds him of ... his own campaign? Indeed, Brown almost seems to be rationalizing the actions of a domestic terrorist, as if Stack's murders can be understood if we just appreciate how "frustrated" people are."I could go on, but I'm feeling slightly queasy already that our Republican leadership feels comfortable making jokes about killing federal workers because they work for the IRS.
Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.
