Alan Grayson: Letting the GOP control government is like letting Al Qaeda fly planes

posted at 4:10 pm on May 21, 2010 by Allahpundit

I don’t know whether to be offended or … puzzled. Is he accusing the GOP of wanting to destroy government or, per what he says before the AQ bit, of simply not wanting to be at the controls? Or does the mere mention of Republicans send him reaching reflexively for the most obnoxious analogy he can think of whether it makes sense or not?

We’ve reached the point with this guy where he’s so far beyond the pale that I don’t quite feel comfortable using him against the Democrats. Same with Olbermann, really. Sure, the fact that Pelosi et al. tolerate him proves that they’re total hypocrites about civility, but even the more acid-tongued lefties in the House concede that he’s a crank. Remember when Glenn Beck nemesis Anthony Weiner, who’s no stranger to confrontational soundbites himself, called Grayson “one fry short of a Happy Meal”? He’s a rolling embarrassment to their side, which is why I’m happy to promote him on the site, but it’s hard to come up with someone in the Dem caucus who relishes playing in the gutter as much as he does. Pete Stark, maybe?

Exit quotation from Jim Geraghty: “In the end, his term in Congress will be remembered as a two-year-long, taxpayer-funded audition tape for MSNBC.”

Well he’s right. But the Democrats are no better, and possibly worse.

Is that supposed to be funny?

I thought Franken would be the Congressional Libtard-funnyman-smarta$$…surprisingly, Smalley’s keeping pretty quiet.

Show me a young Conservative and I’ll show you someone with no heart. Show me an old Liberal and I’ll show you someone with no brains. – Winston Churchill

Thank you Alan Grayson for proving Mr. Churchill right.

My question is why is anyone even bothering to pay attention to what this assclown moron Alan Grayson has to say about anything?

The man is a frigging boneheaded idiot who craves attention, and nothing more than that! The problem is that the media seems to insist on covering him despite the fact that the man has done absolutely nothing constructive since he took office!

The nicest thing the people of his district could do the next time he is up for re-election is vote him out of office!

He is just auditioning for the POPE position of the loony left.

What does the Pope of the Loony left do exactly?

Well, he gets a show or repeat guest appearance position on MSNBC

He travels in tandem with Sharpton on the latest media circus.

He calls the GOP the wildest names possible.

He is hailed by Michael Moore and Hollywood as a “truth-teller”

And he gets funded by Media Matters, Center for American Progress, Organizing for America, SEIU, Acorn, etc.

And in his case he gets to audition for a GEICO COMMERCIAL as one of the CAVEMEN.

This is not the case today. Just 22% say they can trust the government in Washington almost always or most of the time

Wild guess, this 22% are under the age of 30?

Or

On medication?.

“You wouldn’t expect to see Al-Qaeda members as pilots”.—Alan Grayson

You wouldn’t?? Does he remember 9-11 at all?

Bit late to the party, but lorien1973, excellent analogy on the political spectrum.

Sad to say but comments like these will bring Grayson tons of donations. Win or lose he will laugh all the way to the bank.

As a child I totally graysoned when I supported Carter. But I wised up in time to support Reagan.

I can sum up everything Grayson says in three simple words:

“LOOK AT ME!”
