Stephen Colbert brought on Americans for Tax Reform and former Jack Abramoff buddy that somehow managed to escape prosecution to the Colbert Report and asked him about his tax pledge he's managed to make the majority of Republican lawmakers to sign, and whether he'd allow grandmothers across the country be terrorized or allow higher taxes. Norquist responded by saying that "I think we console our self with the fact that we have pictures."

I'd really be a whole lot happier if this guy was sitting in a jail cell next to his buddy Jack instead of appearing on Comedy Central and still being allowed to do his best to help destroy our economy in America with his stinking purity test on taxes that every Republican in America pretends they have to bow down to.
