The man who has sometimes been called "the most powerful man in Washington," anti-tax crusader Grover Norquist, is headed to Burning Man.

He made the announcement yesterday, via Twitter. 

"It's official. Samah and I are off to 'Burning Man' this year. Scratch one from the Bucket List," Norquist tweeted. 

Let's make bets now: Will some Burner hand Norquist a hallucinogen and post the ensuing madness to YouTube?
