Longtime Republican activist Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, has an article in today's Financial Times. In seeking to explain how the Republicans came back, Mr. Norquist may be getting a bit ahead of himself. The Republican takeover of the House of Representatives that he is predicting has not happened yet, after all. But he does make some interesting points about how the Republicans have recovered some ground politically. It's also fascinating to see the reaction in the comments from FT readers: "very sorry to see the FT give a platform to one of the right's most extreme ideologues"; "This is perhaps the most recklessly Republican article to appear on the FT since I've begun reading. I am actually ashamed...This is a terrible article that doesn't deserve to be printed on pink paper."
