    Listening to progressive media pundits, I'd think the most evil man in the universe is Grover Norquist, head of Americans for Tax Reform. His crime? He heads a movement that asks political candidates to pledge not to raise taxes. I think Grover accomplished a lot. But I wish he'd convinced politicians to pledge not to increase spending. President Obama says raising taxes to cut the deficit is a "balanced" approach. Balanced ... But what's "balanced" about raising taxes after vast increases in spending?

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A national advocate against taxes brought his message to Kentucky Thursday with a twist - casino gambling is not covered by the anti-tax pledge. Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform said his organization has signed pledges from 34 Kentucky House members and 17 senators against raising taxes. Gov. Ernie Fletcher, too, has signed the pledge. Norquist said Fletcher's pledge is intact as long as any tax proposal he makes does not raise any more money than it cuts. "So long as it's revenue neutral, it is perfectly consistent with the governor's pledge," Norquist said.
