imageVia Shakesville, Grover “Not the Muppet” Norquist on Friday:

Norquist dropped by The Times’ Washington bureau today and, as part of his negative critique of Obama’s liberal stances on economic issues and other matters, he termed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee “John Kerry with a tan.”

Now, given that “so and so with a tan” is usually used to describe someone putting an inauthentically ethnic (black or brown) face on something considered “white”, I’ll accept Norquist’s inevitable explanation that the party of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton is race baiting. I will also accept that he is the white devil.

UPDATE: John Kerry was John Kerry with a tan.
