Grover Norquist Goes To…Burning Man?!?   Leave a comment

…and to think I thought I’d seen it all: apparently, Grover Norquist – he of the ‘let’s shrink government down to the point where I can drown it in the bathtub” philosophy of life – is traveling to this year’s Burning Man festival.

Quoting conservatism’s resident dolt:

There’s no government that organizes this….That’s what happens when nobody tells you what to do. You just figure it out. So Burning Man is a refutation of the argument that the state has a place in nature.

This is a fun, exciting, cheerful collection of people being free of state control and doing stuff they want to do…. If somebody wants to sit in a corner and read Hayek, I think that that’s allowed. If people want to run around with not as much clothes as they normally do, I think that’s allowed as well.(Bloomberg News via. Booman Tribune)

Now, although I’ve never been to Burning Man, from what I’ve read, ole’ Grover should have a very interesting time there; he’ll especially love the parts of Burning Man’s Ten Principles that involve the lack of commercialism, civic responsibility amongst those who travel there and Burning Man’s views on the environment, namely leaving the area in the same if not better shape than they found it. 

To borrow & paraphrase Booman’s quote: how the hell can I get a gig to Burning Man so that I can see the shock on Norquist’s face when he gets there?
