Quote of the week

Two quotes from the same article by Toby Young:

My political philosophy can be summed up in the words of Grover Norquist, the founder of Americans for Tax Reform. “I don’t want to abolish government,” he said. “I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it in to the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub.”

Only problem with this article is the title, should really be ‘Why I’m a Libertarian’ rather than ‘Why I’m a Conservative’.
