Alan Grayson to Cheney: “STFU”

posted at 8:15 pm on December 9, 2009 by Allahpundit

Just what the doctor ordered to boost Congress’s collapsing public image. My position on this guy’s nutroots vaudeville routine is unchanged from the last time I wrote about him, when he called the GOP enemies of America: I don’t take him seriously enough to be offended by what he says, but his bon mots have to be flagged anyway for point-scoring purposes. For example, the post accompanying this clip at TPM giggles merrily at Grayson’s “signature wit” even though (a) recycling a 15-year-old Internet acronym for lowest-common-denominator shock value is neither witty nor signature, and (b) TPM would surely have had itself a politically calculated fainting spell had Eric Cantor resorted to something as mildly outré as a “second base” analogy of the sort Grayson indulges in here. But fine. We’re playing the faux outrage game and this is certainly worthy of faux outrage, so put another point on the board.

One question for Grayson, though. If Joe Wilson’s “you lie” was the political equivalent of a belch, what’s the equivalent of “STFU”? A fart?

Cheney can dismantle this stupid POS Grayson into subatomic particles with 10 or less well chosen words, if he was ever inclined to do so.

no, for this pu**y it would have to be… sorry, i can’t bring myself to type it, but it starts with a “K-W-”, ends with “F”, and has two of the same vowel in the middle..

Ted — This is the third time in two days, IIRC, that you’ve used the comments section to complain that a post doesn’t interest you. The next time you waste our bandwidth this way, you’re banned. If you have a story suggestion, e-mail us at tips. If you have something substantive to say about the post, by all means, comment. But the constant “I don’t care about this!” whine is past its expiration date.

Allahpundit on December 9, 2009 at 8:24 PM

How did Alan Grayson even get voted in? He is so unprofessional. He does nothing but mock the other side and talk in extremes. I am so sick of our govt and the way they are handling everything. As my mom used to say…Gag me with a spoon.

I live about 2 miles outside of Grayson’s district. THANK GOD!

He beat out Ric Keller in 2008, mainly because Keller went back on his promise to limit himself to only a couple of terms. He actually signed a term limits pledge and then didn’t abide by it. Pissed a lot of people off in the process.

Don’t worry, though. Even the people down in Orlando proper are annoyed with this idiot. There’s a big movement to run him out come 2010.

Uh, dude, the guy is Harvard Law, and Kennedy School of Government. You know, the same school that granted kissinger, Pierre Trudeau,and Paul Volcker their degrees. The same law school that graduated Roberts and Alito.

I think the guy is a bit of a nut, but if you are going to attack him for a Harvard Law Degree and PhD, you better be prepared to throw down a resume printed in gold ink. So far I don’t even see something that came out of a box of Cracker Jacks.
