Grover Norquist Will Miss Tussling With Stephen Colbert

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist fears no one in Washington. But it took him a while to figure out how to successfully mix things up with faux-conservative interviewer Stephen Colbert.  

Norquist, who is no stranger to verbally jousting with opponents on the Sunday news shows — “You get it. They have liberal assumptions tucked inside a question … you deal with it,” he said of the standard us vs. them rhetorical smack down — told HOH he held The Colbert Report producers at bay about appearing on the show for over a year because he had some trouble wrapping his head around how to engage with Colbert’s TV persona.
