Norqvist the Nazi should be run out of the country, he's nothing but a nasty little extortionist and Rightie power-broker. Sad thing is, reTHUGlicans kowtow to him shamelessly. Of course, they put party before country, that's nothing new, but that's no reason to hand themselves over to this cheap pimp.
