On Christmas Eve, Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist posed a question probably better kept to himself considering children are more adept at the Internet than adults.
But no. The Washington insider with young daughters, ages 4 and 5, had to go ahead and try to ruin Christmas for the little ones. Is he trying to destroy the magic of Jesus’ birthday?
My girls are four and five. Appear to be true Santa believers–unless they are kidding Dad. What is proper age to explain santa is mom/dad.

Needless to say, the reaction wasn’t so sympathetic or ‘oh what a cute question!.’
@GroverNorquist You don’t explain it, you wait to they tell you. Do you have to suck the happiness out of everything? Merry Christmas. Jeez.

Norquist felt the need to respond to Tim Farley, saying, “Very good point. I am assuming I have somewhat of a head start here. Maybe not as much as I would like.”
@GroverNorquist plz dont kill their inspiration/hopes.

Norquist also felt a burning need to reply to Asif. He replied, “I won’t. Their wonder and belief is amazing. Still I feel bad fibbing to trusting girls.”
