Alan Grayson: Fox News, GOP are the enemies of America, peace, puppies

posted at 7:51 pm on October 21, 2009 by Allahpundit

Via Greg Hengler, a belated edition to Michael Moynihan’s list of liberals who’ve recently questioned the patriotism of the right. I’ll level with you: I know I’m supposed to be horribly offended by this, but I find it impossible to take seriously anything that comes of this grandstanding idiot’s mouth. He’s so clearly relishing his role as the left’s new golden boy/attack dog that I half expect him to start bringing photos of Rush Limbaugh to his interviews so that he can tear them up halfway through. And yet, because the left can always be trusted to have a mock-outraged fainting spell whenever some conservative tosses a rhetorical grenade like this at them (has any Republican gone quite this far lately?), I’m obliged to flag it simply for tu quoque point-scoring purposes. The next time Michele Bachmann or whoever says something nutty and liberals are overcome by the vapors of how demagogic the GOP is, here’s your post to point back to.

I actually went over to MSNBC and watched the full exchange with Grayson to make sure that Ed Schultz didn’t challenge him on this, and sure enough, nope, he didn’t. You might want to check out the beginning of that clip, incidentally, as it features Grayson musing that 99 percent of Americans have the good sense not to watch Fox News. Um, buddy, do you realize which network you’re on here?

Hey, I like puppies. With a nice hollandaise sauce. Not as tasty as babies, but still yummy. Pair with a good merlot.

Dear Mr. Grayson:

Here’s hoping that your career in Congress dies quickly.

it features Grayson musing that 99 percent of Americans have the good sense not to watch Fox News.

Since Fox’s highest rated shows pull about 3 million viewers a pop, I guess technically he’s right. But yeah, I can’t get too upset over anything this idiot says either.

I am just glad the Democrats have found an “enemy” that they can attack without, you know, having to get down in the trenches and actually physically fight. Like Muslim extremists. Now if Osama wants to engage in a war of words Woo Hoo the Dems got something for him. Bring it on.

Dick Morris begs to differ:

Is FOX News “an arm of the Republican Party” as White House Communications Director Anita Dunn says?

Democratic and Independent voters beg to differ. A national survey shows that 46% of those who watch FOX News “just about every day” are Democrats or Independents as are 50% of those who watch it “several times each week” or more.

Overall, the survey showed that 21% of all American voters watched FOX News every day and 18% watched it several times each week. So, combined, 39% watched the station several times each week or more.

• Among Democrats, 17% watched it several times each week or more

• Among Independents, 46% the station several times each week or more

• And among Republicans, 55% tuned in several times each week or more

Why isn’t there some kind of poll of the people of his district think of this douchebag?When Joe Wilson called Obama a liar; the next day there were all kinds of doomsday polls against Wilson as well as praising his likely opponent in the media. Media double standard again…

BJ on October 21, 2009 at 8:09 PM

Alan, you’re a pathetic laughable joke.

Have YOU ever served in the military in a combat zone defending the United States of America?

I have.

And I’m a very proud conservative republican.

Be VERY thankful there are REAL men that are willing to put it all on the line so that simpletons like you can deride their sacrifice for their own political gain.

I wish I could tell you the GOP is on top of things and preparing a viable challenge to him, or that there were lots of people scrambling to take him on.

But if I did that, I’d be lying.

The left wing media, along with the White House is really having a good meltdown. Fox News and the whole Fox network is up 15 to 20% in viewership since Emanuel and Obama began their calculated attack. I’m thinking of a special hankie for liberals with a crying face embroidered on it.

This Grayson slug is the best. Keep him talking. More Grayson!

I do love it when the America-hating leftists – the ones who voted to put an Indonesian in charge of our Executive branch – have the chutzpah to talk about enemies of America. LOL. The Founders would have hanged half of these folks for being the moronic nitwits they are.

progressoverpeace on October 21, 2009 at 8:22 PM

I am, unfortunately, a constituent of Graysons. Yeah, I know, I throw up a little in my mouth every time that realization hits me. My only consolation is that, being a republican district, he will be a one-term wonder.

And no, I did NOT vote for him, and every person I’ve spoken to around here can’t wait to NOT vote for him next year.

In the meantime, feel my shame at having him ‘represent’ me.

Oh, and as slimy as he looks, it isn’t even close to the reality.

The Major Media in the U.S. gleefully jacks-off to Obama. Any other description of the relationship between the Media and Obama is gross understatement.

I think Armando Gutierrez is going to be challenging him. I’m not totally sure on him, but by the sounds of the people who are lining up behind him, he might well be a good candidate.

clement on October 21, 2009 at 8:29 PM

The greatest, most telling difference between lefties and conservatives is that lefties need a safe zone. Lefties find justification by the number of people who think like them, while conservatives will go, maybe gun-in-hand, to face the entire US Army alone for the liberty we demand for ourselves and our posterity.

I think Thomas Paine said, “If there be trouble, let it be in my time, that my child have peace.”

Liberals don’t have such a value. so, when they see a number of people who think other than them, they freak.

This kid is just another case to prove my point. Gotta love it! The lefty media is wigging out, all without their fave drug of choice.

Meh. The problem is, he gets inspiration from the wrong ones.

I’d support a politician who cited “Carousel of Progress” or “The American Adventure” as inspiration. I doubt he’d ever get inside the American Adventure, though, because there are people in the lobby singing patriotic songs.

jhffmn on October 21, 2009 at 8:43 PM

Obviously, Grayson hasn’t seen all the cute puppy videos
“Red Eye” runs.

(Also, AFAIK, Grayson does not represent a ‘safe seat’ district, like a Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank or Charlie Rangel, where he can say any asinine thing he wants to and still be assured of 70 percent of the vote minimum. So as we get closer and closer to the 2010 election next year, it will be interesting to see if Alan continues his question to become the Democrats’ far-left version of Jim Traficant, or if he starts trying to fade into the woodwork when he realizes these rants aren’t helping him with the swing voters.)

jon1979 on October 21, 2009 at 8:45 PM

This is soooo great! Grayson says Republicans are the enemy of education.

Funny, but which of the two Parties opposes school choice, vouchers, and home schooling?

Hint: Not Republicans

Liam on October 21, 2009 at 8:47 PM

You want to put some pressure on Grayson? Call up the tourism boards in the cities in his district and explain that you were planning a vacation in that area, but cannot support an area represented by someone so hate-filled and “divisive”.

LOL the enemies of peace

650,000 dead servicemen and tens of millions of dead civilians

Aggie95 on October 21, 2009 at 8:51 PM

And if Repubs are the enemy of peace, then why is Obama (maybe) going to expand the Afghan war? I say we need to get out of there and Iraq.

What about Bosnia, (under Clinton) and Somalia (under Clinton)?

Does Grayson remember the Nam (under Kennedy and Johnson)? Who got us out of there at long last?

Actually, I do hate peace. I don’t want peace, not at all. What I want is for all of the enemies of the USA to be dead. Just by coincidence, that is the only way that we could ever be at peace. Not that I want that, of course. I want our enemies dead because I want our enemies dead. Don’t you?

No, he replaced Ric Keller in District 8, which is basically Orlando. Most of the establishment GOP in town is taking a pass on running against him (cf. skunk, pissing match). This guy Gutierrez who was mentioned up-thread is a transplant from South Florida.

It’s hard to imagine Grayson getting another term, but never underestimate the power of the GOP to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
