On Sunday, politician Grover Norquist tweeted a story about his daughter that he felt would clearly illustrate how and why people become Republicans. Norquist, by the way, is the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform (which is, according to Wikipedia, an organization that opposes all tax increases). The story is so pat it almost seems fake, but whether or not it's true, Norquist definitely got the crap owned out of him by Twitter.
Norquist posted a tweet reading, "How Republicans are born... Daughter, 8, has been savings up to buy her first Guitar. Found it for $35. She had 35 exact. Then...sales tax."
Uh-oh! Not sales tax! Evil sales tax created just to break the hearts of little guitar-wanting girls everywhere! That is the only reason sales tax exists. There is no other point to it. Oh, wait.
