Anyway, however Cohen ran into the remark, he at least got a good paragraph out of it.
[T]he moral equivalency Norquist concocts is his own -- and it speaks volumes about the morality of anti-tax Republicans [see: The Club for Growth, Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform]. To them, the rich owe nothing -- just like the poor, they would say. (The difference between rich and poor escapes them.) This is unbridled selfishness in the guise of ideology and makes wealth the moral equivalent of ethnicity or religion or even sexual preference. To Norquist, distinguishing between rich and poor is like making a selection at Auschwitz. It not only trivializes the Holocaust, it collapses all moral distinctions.
