From Tuesday night's The Daily Show, regular Samantha Bee laid waste to Americans for Tax Reform's Grover Norquist while interviewing him about his so-called "Taxpayer Protection Pledge."

NORQUIST: My team is winning and it can be taught to Harry Reid. He wanted a $2.5 trillion tax increase last year and he didn't get it.

BEE: Your team is winning? It's like you came up with this whole idea when you were twelve.

NORQUIST: It was something I came up with when I was twelve, to get a teacher to...

BEE: I'm sorry, what did you say? You came up with this idea when you were...

NORQUIST: Seventh grade.

BEE: ...in seventh grade?

BEE (off camera): Yes, the entire federal government is paralyzed because of a document, written by a twelve year old, in 1968.

Bee's solution for the Democrats... get their own "think tank" of twelve year olds.
