John Ashcroft, Uniter


From Byron York, in the National Review Monday:

[Grover] Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform, and [David] Keene, of the American Conservative Union, joined actor Alec Baldwin and People for the American Way president Ralph Neas as part of a conference called "Grassroots America Defends the Bill of Rights."

The conference featured seminars designed to teach activists how to oppose the act more effectively by mounting petition drives, media campaigns, and efforts to counter what organizers called Attorney General John Ashcroft's "campaign of half-truths, misleading statements, and outright lies."

  1. NRO slagged Norquist for leading Shrub’s outreach to the Muslims during the 2000 campaign. He’s been too friendly with “those people” for the culture warriors’ taste for a long time.

  2. Strange bedfellows indeed, but who’s sleeping with whom?
