Video: Democratic idiot explains the GOP health-care plan to you

posted at 9:38 pm on September 29, 2009 by Allahpundit

It’s come to this.

His remarks, which drew angry and immediate calls for an apology from Republicans, were highlighted by a sign reading “The Republican Health Care Plan: Die Quickly.”

Veteran Tennessee Republican Jimmy Duncan abandoned customary reticence to chastise Grayson.

“That is about the most mean-spirited partisan statement that I’ve ever heard made on this floor, and I, for one, don’t appreciate it,” Duncan said.

“It’s fully appropriate that the gentleman return to the floor and apologize,” said Rep. Marsha Blackburn, another Tennessee Republican.

This is the same moron, you may recall, whose own deep thoughts about policy come from riding the teacups at Disney World and then declaring that every American deserves a federally mandated week’s worth of paid vacation. No, I’m not kidding.

He wanted some cheap free publicity by pulling this stunt and, gosh darn it, he’s going to get it. Here’s your 15 minutes, jerky.

I don’t know why, but that screencap is hilarious.

Maybe because it’s so over-the-top that I’d expect it to be mockery from Crowder or something.

You sure this wasn’t from the Onion?

Or the Ed Schultz show which is basically the same thing.

“The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick!”

OOOOOO the irony, cause this will be the end result if Obamacare become the law of the land.

Sharr on September 29, 2009 at 9:41 PM

Isn’t that what Obama-death-care is all about?

Seems that this dem-idiot is projecting himself on Republicans.

BottomLine5 on September 29, 2009 at 9:42 PM

The Republicans want you to choose between eating dog food and paying for your health care!

Tony737 on September 29, 2009 at 9:43 PM

Die like a chicken. They don’t stay sick long.

disa on September 29, 2009 at 9:43 PM

Clearly he doesn’t know that’s the joke in Canada about our health care system there:

Canadian Health Care Plan:
Don’t get sick.

mjk on September 29, 2009 at 9:43 PM

Does this moron have an opponent in his reelection race? Cuz I’d like to donate to whoever’s running against Grayson.

Yossarian on September 29, 2009 at 9:44 PM

Is this the new, respectful tenor that the ‘rats were clamoring for in the health care debate?

Ya know, I’m feeling sort of scared of the libs right now, as if they might be on the verge of extreme violence or something; it’s ok to feel that way I hope.

Bishop on September 29, 2009 at 9:44 PM

He was one of Peter Schiff’s clients, but apparently hasn’t learned too much from him. Do like his grilling of the Federal Reserve however:

Boy does this guy have an arrogance about him. Not only that, he didn’t say anything of substance. Floridians take note! He sure put them Republicans in their place didn’t he? Wow. What a tool.

So, why not link it; then, we can look at it, and decide if your ‘argument of moral equivalence’ holds water.

massrighty on September 29, 2009 at 9:46 PM

Well, at least he used an adverb…”quickly” as opposed to “quick”. Where have all the adverbs gone?

SouthernGent on September 29, 2009 at 9:47 PM

So this guy actually got elected, huh? Strange, he doesn’t seem uber-intelligent and sophisticated and brilliant, even though he’s a Democrat.

He doesn’t have a very high opinion of his audience’s wit, either.

disa on September 29, 2009 at 9:47 PM

Let’s hope that Alan Grayson buys into the Republican plan then…

When Granny’s sent home with some pills in a plastic bag
Hurrah! Hurrah!
Obama will give her a hearty high five then
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The Emanuels will cheer, the Kevorkians will shout
The eugenicists they will all turn out
And the old folks will all be dead by Christmas time next year!

Get ready for the Ezekiel Emanuel Jubilee
Hurrah! Hurrah!
He’ll give Herr Obama three times three
Hurrah! Hurrah!
The Doctor of Life and Death degree is ready now
To place upon Herr Obama’s Godly brow
And he will feel so happy and gay
When Pallbearers carry Grandma and Grandpa to the funeral home

Please Mr. Obama, I don’t wanna go
Hey, Mr. Obama, please don’t make me go
I had a dream last night about my comin’ medical care
Somebody said “What you’ll get is ObamaCare!’”
And there I stood with a rag in my mouth upon which to bite.

Look at them waiting lines there, they’re hardly even movin’
And there’s a bureaucrat at every one
Hey, Mr. Obama, you mind if I be excused the rest of the decade?
HEY GRANDMA, DUCK YER HEAD!!
(Sound of Obama appointed bureaucrat’s clipboard whizzing by)
Hmm, you’re a little bit late on that one, Granny
Whooh, I bet that smarts!

Please Mr. Obama, I don’t wanna go
Listen, Mr. Obama, please don’t make me go
There’s a bureaucrat a’waitin’ out there, just fixin to decide my fate
A complainer I’ve been called cuz I don’t wanna wind up screamin’ or dead

I wonder what the Kenyan word for friend is
Let’s see-friend– kemo sabe, that’s it!
KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
Nope, that itn’t it
Look at them durned power mad control freak fascists
They’re runnin’ around like a bunch of wild Mengeles, Emanuels and Kevorkians-heh, heh, heh

When I saw the headline, I thought this guy must be from a deep blue district. No, he represents Orlando, Fl. Great for the Republicans, who already have him in their cross-hairs for 2010. This is the kind of talk that upsets the shallow moderates. (They don’t care a damn thing about policy, they just don’t want their politicians to say mean things.) Is he just a goofball, or this a gambit to attract nutroots and wealthy dem funding?

Thank you Grayson for exposing them. Thank you. Thank you.

thomasaur on September 29, 2009 at 10:04 PM

Lemme tell you about Alan Grayson’s seat. It was the seat once held by staunch conservative Bill McCollum, one of the House managers during Sick Willie’s impeachment.
There was a perennial moonbat who worked at Disneyworld, by the name of Al Krulick always challenging him. Every two years, like clockwork.
This ‘joker’ wrote columns for an ‘alternative’ type magazine.
Need I say more?
When McCollum ran for Senate, unsuccessfully, Ric Keller took his place.
Grayson, a fat trial lawyer from Virginia, who made his money much the same way as John Edwards, became the ‘challenger du jour’.
This last election brought every idiot kid out of the woodwork to vote for Obama.
To make a long story short, this seat is heavily Republican.
So I can say with 99% certainty, Grayson = Gone.

Once again, you have a major problem with comprehension.

We know Osama Obama doesn’t hate all humanity. Hell, no!

He absolutely adores Chicago crooks, terrorists, traitors, race-baiters, thugs, union goons and those who aid pimps with underage South American girls in their stables. And he has a soft spot in his heart for anyone who worships him as the New Messiah.

It’s just decent, law-abiding, patriotic Americans whom he spits upon.

On behalf of sensible Central Floridians, we apologize for the voters sending this douchebag carpetbagging ambulance-chaser Alan Grayson to the U.S. Congress.

He and fellow liberal Suzanne Kosmas rode the coat-tails of the “Yes We Can” express to Washington DC and were running against perverbial GOP douchebag incumbents Ric Keller and Tom Feeney. Ric Keller makes a cold mashed potato sandwich seem lively and Grayson spend millions of his own money to buy the seat. Feeney had ties to Jack Abramoff got pounded on that.

Elections have consequences… Call this the “trickle down effect of Hopenchange”

Hopefully the GOP will present some good conservative candidates to unseat these morons instead of the same old stale stuffed shirts.

The 2010 mid-term elections can’t get here fast enough.

They are beginning to get really, really scary. Most of them seem to have mental problems that are being manisfested in anger, ridicule and very crazy things. I’m afraid they might all become violent if they don’t get their way.

The voices in my head are telling me to dig a bunker, clean the ordnance and check the supplies. Should I be frightened of these libs? /sarc
