Now Republicans are organizing “grassroots” groups to support the Bush cabinet nominees. And, hey, they’re coming to Talking Points for support!
About a year ago, Talking Points and the guy who worked with him in his office at the time dropped by the annual Conservative Political Action Conference. He loved it. Missile defense and cocktails. Grover Norquist talking about his plan to cut the size of government by 2/3 in twenty-five years, or something like that. And a lot of T-shirts with Clinton with Pinnochio noses. Great stuff.
Anyway, on the way out he stopped by the Citizens for a Sound Economy table and in exchange for giving his name and email address got a Trial Lawyers are Sharks T-shirt and a small plastic Citizens for Sound Economy football (he goes in for this sort of stuff) that he threw at people in the office for several months.
Well, now they’re getting into the nomination game.
They sent along this email …
And who is Citizens for a Sound Economy? Standard wacked-out Washington pressure group pushing for no taxes and no regulation. They’re run by C. Boyden Grey, longtime Bush associate, Bush Sr’s White House Counsel, and also heir to some sort of tobacco fortune.
