What would Grover do?

Back when Martin was still in the Senate, a handful of people gathered in the Ice Cream Parlor of the old Capitol for a meeting he organized with Grover Norquist, sometimes referred to by Democrats as Arizona’s shadow governor.

Both would equally diminish an established brand and make no one ever want to purchase it again – or vote for it, as the case may be.
