Gee, thanks, FL... (specifically the Disney area) for Grayson. Where'd ya find him - the swamp with the other reptiles? Time to throw him back!
Alan Grayson, of "Republicans want you to die" fame:
What a waste of time and money. Fire the person who let him prattle on too. Democrats should be embarrassed, not applaud him. If Joe Wilson was out of line, why isn't this guy?
Oh, he said "Madame Speaker" - I guess she was the one who let him speak and didn't stop his foolishness. Have to wonder if he's just an odd one or if there are others that do this. If so, boot them all out. I don't care which side of the aisle they are on either. If you can't be serious and if you waste my time and money by doing a half-hearted kindergarten show-and-tell presentation, you need to leave. Rubbish, absolute rubbish.
And his 'heartfelt apology':
What a smug SOB. We DO NOT need these clowns to stand up there, giving us a verbal finger...and on our dime, nonetheless! They need to remember one important fact: THEY WORK FOR US. If they can't recognize this or abide to it, then they don't need to be there. I'd never get away with a display like this at my job, why are they getting away with it at theirs? Time to clean up Washington and vote the jokers out. If he had time for all this foolishness, then he had time to read that damn bill. Don't tell me that it's too difficult to read or too big to go through if you had time to put together a presentation, time to put together the unapology speech and time to present both. QUIT FOOLING AROUND AND DO YOU JOB!! (And need I point out the irony that he talks about them needing to do their jobs??) If he really cared about those dead people he's exploiting, then he'd sit down and try to find a solution instead of running his one-man circus.
And he follows in Barack's footsteps by telling Republicans to "get out of the way":
These aren't isolated incidents either. YouTube is FULL of video of him saying oddball things on the floor of the house. "If Barack Obama has a BLT sandwich, the GOP will try to ban bacon"??? C'mon... really? Maybe if he quit yakking on the floor every two seconds, he might realize that the Republicans have MULTIPLE health care bills.
Then this week, he launches into more name-calling - this time, about a colleague:
"Here I am the only member of Congress who actually worked as an economist, and this lobbyist, this K Street whore, is trying to teach me about economics"
And later, he gives another unapology:
"I offer my sincere apology to Linda Robertson. I did not intend to use a term that is often and correctly seen as disrespectful of women."
And even his spokespeople pull excuses out of the sky to defend him, as I found on POLITICO:
“The attack was on her professional career, not her personal life. The second definition of ‘whore’ in the American Heritage Dictionary is 'A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain."
(Guess you'd have to be 'one fry short' if you buy that bunch of hot air... what is it with liberal politicians and definitions???)
I must say I was delighted when a fellow democrat, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D.N.Y.) said he was "one fry short of a Happy Meal", but disappointed when he took it back. "Playful comment"... yeah... no one buys that either. Stand by what you say or don't say it at all.
Thank goodness someone in his state launched My Congressman is Nuts. Good for her! (Although the lady interviewing her seems a little nuts herself) H/t to the Conservative Lady for the link.
