Video: Just a reminder why Grayson has to go

posted at 2:55 pm on August 25, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Now that Florida has selected its general-election candidates, the NRCC wants people to remember why Alan Grayson needs to be retired. It’s not just because he has voted in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi to impose a radical agenda that has deconstructed any hope for a real economic recovery. It’s that he has made himself into a buffoon in doing so. Florida’s 8th Congressional District deserves better:

How did Grayson get elected in the first place in an R+2 district? Barack Obama won 52% of the vote in 2008 (Bush had won by 11 points in 2004), and the resulting wave produced the exact same level of support for Grayson. One might think that this kind of victory would have Grayson acting a lot more moderate and, well, sane.  However, as we have seen repeatedly in his freshman term in the House, Grayson has gone full bore into hard-Left lunacy, so much so that even his appearances on friendly media outlets proved tiresome for his hosts, as the last scene shows in the video.

Daniel Webster won the GOP nomination.  It won’t take much more than simple replays of Grayson’s videotaped nuttiness to define the incumbent as ripe for retirement.  Getting a Jeb Bush endorsement certainly won’t hurt:

Isn’t it both funny and sad to see what kind of turds washed up on the beach along with Obama?? Grayson…Perriello….

one and done, eh fellas.?….buh bye.

BTW. Perriello has a townhall tomorrow night w/ our Tea Party.

damn right i’m going.

Grayson – always angling for the coveted guest appearance on Countdown, hosted by that other batsh*t crazy loon…

joejm65 on August 25, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Wow, Chris Matthews was disgusted by Grayson’s anti-Cheney tone.

This sucker better be a TV ad.

give us a synopsis afterwards

cmsinaz on August 25, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Actually, maybe it shouldn’t be. The TV in the background was too little to see what was happening half of the time. Pull it forward.

amerpundit on August 25, 2010 at 3:01 PM

WRONG EVERYONE – we want this clown in office, and we want him on TV as often as possible – saying as many stupid things as possible – and we want him forever as a Democrat.

We want this guy around forever.

bring a video camera!

dIb on August 25, 2010 at 3:01 PM

I like the video where Grayson showed up at a steak house and acted like an a$$ and got thrown out.

portlandon on August 25, 2010 at 3:02 PM

Doing all he can to make Barney Frank look normal.

jake-the-goose on August 25, 2010 at 3:01 PM

We have Franken for that. ObamaCare passed the House with just a few votes. This could’ve been a “no” vote. Let’s take it back.

amerpundit on August 25, 2010 at 3:04 PM

Classic modern day Democrat politician. Why doesn’t the RNC interns have fun putting together clips of the real moonbats to profile what the current Dems are like?

DrStock on August 25, 2010 at 3:07 PM

I think Grayson always knew he was never going to hold that seat for long. So he has been angling toward a high position in a George Soros funded group for after he is out.

The debates will be great though.

Rocks on August 25, 2010 at 3:08 PM

Dan Webster—great name recognition. Good luck fella.

ted c on August 25, 2010 at 3:08 PM

Lily on August 25, 2010 at 3:03 PM

I keep on forgetting, which of the Oppressives (a better word for them than “progressives”) in the Democratic party are supposed to be “Normal”?

Chip on August 25, 2010 at 3:12 PM

What is so disturbing is how this guy gets elected in the first place. It is scary to say the least. These are the people who are defining our country and our national policy. It is more than scary.

rjoco1 on August 25, 2010 at 3:13 PM

Why are you videotaping me?

Isn’t it funny how these far leftists have such an aversion to being caught on camera? Remember how Sean Penn used to physically attack the paparazzi who tried to take his photo?

Seems like the further left they are, the more they hate it. Just one more reason to always carry a camera with you.

UltimateBob on August 25, 2010 at 3:14 PM

Also, Grayson smells bad. This is not a joke.

dczombie on August 25, 2010 at 3:14 PM

slightly OT on congressmen who need to go….check out this weird as hell story on Russ Carnahan’s office getting firebombed.

We need some sloppy GOP gushing about “admiring people who stand up for what they believe” right about now.

mankai on August 25, 2010 at 3:17 PM

Wow, Chris Matthews was disgusted by Grayson’s anti-Cheney tone.

amerpundit on August 25, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Yep. How big a loon do you have to be to embarrass even a radical, Cheney-hating, lefty like Matthews?

Please Florida voters, send this nutjob back to whatever asylum he escaped from.

AZCoyote on August 25, 2010 at 3:17 PM

Dan Webster—great name recognition. Good luck fella.

ted c on August 25, 2010 at 3:08 PM

The effect is somewhat diminished. You have to factor in the “Public School Education Denominator” on that one.

mankai on August 25, 2010 at 3:19 PM

You a southern Va boy Ted? Short Pump in Henrico County here.

Maybe our politicians – who are supposed to work for the People should be under constant surveillance.

Don’t they love to use the phrase “If you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about” whenever they want to infringe on our privacy?

Shouldn’t they be the first to test out that idea?

Well, “Dick” Grayson is no Burt Ward, That’s all I’m gonna say…

mojo on August 25, 2010 at 3:25 PM

Can you imagine the scene on election night if Grayson loses?

Instead of a concession speech, there will be a frothing, rage filled, unbelievably nut-tastic oratory unlike the world has ever seen. That crazy sum-beech might even start sacrificing small animals right there on the stage!

Can’t wait.

BacaDog on August 25, 2010 at 3:25 PM

see this is the proble the gop is concentrating on an idiot when they should be directing resources to defeating the dems that act conservative at home but vote liberal in DC. the etheridges’s of the world.

Grayson is the fake false target that the dems want the GOP to shoot at. He is in a safe seat the people that voted for this idiot know what they are getting why waste time money and resourses going after this twit. Take the money and go after the lies who pretend to be someone else at home.

grayson will fit right in in this administration. New spokesman for zero?

jake-the-goose on August 25, 2010 at 3:01 PM

There are plenty of leftists that won’t lose their jobs in November that will provide decent if not Grayson-quality soundbites.

I can live with this guy being forced back into private life, selling used cars or whatever.

Asher on August 25, 2010 at 3:30 PM

Grayson will be scaring kids off of his lawn in no time.

stonemeister on August 25, 2010 at 3:35 PM

Still, Democrats hug the hope that Obama is really the liberal Ronald Reagan — but without wit, humor, an explainable ideology or an effective economic plan. Other than that, the resemblance is uncanny. (Michael Gerson)

Grayson was described wonderfully by Jim Geraghty of The Campaign Spot at National Review. Instead of Grayson (D-FL) Geraghty called him Grayson (troll-kos).

Hee, hee.

MoodyBlu on August 25, 2010 at 3:50 PM

Grayson is the symptom. The electorate of FL 8th congressional district is the problem.

Grayson is a gun waiting to go off over, and over again. He needs to run out of ammo.

Alan Grayson, those fifteen minutes are just about up.

Was so happy to see Dan Webster win the nomination last night — Grayson is now on borrowed time! Grayson is a lunatic.

PhiKapMom on August 25, 2010 at 4:54 PM

Geez, I wish I hadn’t watched that clip…what a despicable little gimcrack.

scalleywag on August 25, 2010 at 4:59 PM

Doesn’t he look like Little Eddie from the Munsters all grown up?

NJ Red on August 25, 2010 at 5:00 PM

Grayson = Uber-douche.

Dopenstrange on August 25, 2010 at 5:06 PM

Grayson will be running to Nancy for protection. After all, she’s his ‘designated attack dog’. Surely she won’t fail to back him now.

GarandFan on August 25, 2010 at 5:21 PM

I believe what Ed meant to say is that Alan Grayson is a total douche.

Beat me to it. Looks like he already has name recognition taken care of.

cobrakai99 on August 25, 2010 at 8:05 PM

What bothers me the most about Alan Grayson, other than the fact that he is a clownish, cartoonish idiot in desperate need of a village is that he comes across as someone who is beyond anger management and who long ago entered into the dark realm of pure unabashed hatred towards all things conservative. I think he had this hatred in him long before the 8th Congressional District took leave of its senses and elected him to Congress, and since being there, it has given him the power to express that hatred in ways he wasn’t able to do so before.

This is one of the chief reasons why he needs to be voted out of office. The sooner, the better.
