Grover Norquist, the head of Americans for Tax Reform and the man who became famous for the line "I'm not in favor of abolishing the government. I just want to shrink it down to the size where we can drown it in the bathtub," has chosen the vice presidential candidate whom he believes would be the best bathtub-drowner — and it's Gov. Bobby Jindal.

Politico has Norquist's essay:

Romney would do well to have a wing man who can astutely explain the flaws in President Barack Obama’s policies and lay out the GOP’s innovative, pro-growth alternatives. There are many attractive prospects out there, but Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal can do not just all that, he has already implemented the sort of bold reforms at the state level that are now desperately needed at the federal level.

Read it all.

Last week, the Associated Press reported Louisiana's budget deficit is now $220 million.
