Peter King: My Wife Would Knock Off Grover Norquist's Head

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) said Wednesday that he didn't feel bound to Grover Norquist's anti-tax increase pledge -- and he suggested that Norquist's head might not stay bound to his neck, either.

King, who has feuded with Norquist over the upcoming budget negotiations, was offended that Norquist had mentioned his wife during a TV appearance.

“I don’t think he’s ever met me, certainly he’s never met my wife. And he better hope he doesn’t. She’ll knock his head off," King told Politico.

King earlier attracted Norquist's ire when said that his pledge never to raise taxes didn't apply for the duration of his career, and that all fiscal options should be on the table in debt talks.

Norquist hit back, telling CNN's Piers Morgan, "I hope his wife understands the commitments last a little longer than two years or something."

"That was a bit below the belt, Grover," Morgan objected.

Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform, has spent much of the week on the defensive against Republicans who have backed away from his pledge, predicting that some wouldn't follow through or didn't mean for their comments to go public. He had said that those open to tax hikes have "sugar plum dancing fairies in their head."

Somebody needs to tell Ms. Norquist that no one elected her to any public office (and she couldn't get elected dog catcher), and her attempts to shut down the U.S. Government are total bullshit.

I may be an idiot-but what is a Grover Norquist and why do people listen to him so devoutly?

He is a shill for the money-grubbing multi-milionaires who are bleeding the USA dry, R3.

I much prefer the Sesame Street puppet Grover to this wealthy man's lapdog version.
