Good news and bad news from DC

First the good: Conservative members of Congress are talking back to one of the capital’s biggest bullies. Think Progress reports that Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee joined a growing chorus of GOP lawmakers publicly distancing themselves from Grover “Dr. Evil” Norquist’s no tax pledge.  

Now the bad: The “compromises” being advanced by the backtalkers are a long way from acceptable. As Steve Benen notes, Lindsay Graham deserves credit for rebuking Norquist, but his alternative fiscal solution is really just a warmed over version of Mitt Romney’s plan.
