Go read this post by Digby. I’ve referenced Frank’s book here a few times, although I dunno whether I’ve ever discussed the section which she excerpts. Even with Grover Norquist in the news a bit as a result of the debt ceiling incident, there was no focus on these aspects of his career. Working with South Africa’s apartheid regime, which he did extensively, is bad. Lionizing Jonas Savimbi is reeeeeally bad. But what percentage of people in the country know about this? Very, very few is my guess. And Grover’s one of the most powerful people on the planet.
