Green Room

Alan Grayson already being very Alan Graysonish

Teacups” is back, and his unhinged schtick hasn’t changed one bit.  AP’s been wondering which politician would be the first to float a House Republicans/terrorists comparison over the Sandy relief bill snafu; that “crisis” has been averted, but Grayson is never one to allow an opportunity for heinous demagoguery to go to waste, so he’s pre-emptively dropping the T-word it in advance of the debt ceiling brawl:

Well, they say it’s a device for them to extract concessions that they have otherwise be able to accomplish, that’s why it’s legislative terrorism. They’re using the debt ceiling as a means to cut Social Security benefits, cut Medicare benefits, cut unemployment insurance, cut anything of any use to any ordinary human being in this country simply because they want more money for tax cuts for the rich.

Lest there was any doubt, this little rhetorical chestnut was indeed dropped on MSNBC — although another network may soon be vying for Grayson’s creepy affections.  The people of Florida’s ninth district have chosen to return this cretin to the House of Representatives, so let’s recall the surreally sleazy ad he ran against Republican Daniel Webster (who remains in Congress, incidentally) back in 2010.  Over at Townhall, we produced our own attack ad against Grayson at the time, turning his own tawdry tactics against him:

America’s worst politician” served a two-year term in the political penalty box, captured the Democratic nomination in a different district, and won the general election in November — by a landslide.   But watch out for those caustic, “lunatic” Republicans, America.

UPDATE – I almost forgot to remind everyone that ‘Republicans = terrorists’ analogies are old hat on the Left, particularly within the context of bruising political fights over the government’s endless accrual of debt.  Grayson may earn points for instability and zeal, but none for originality.

I’d call Grayson a scumbag, but that would be unfair to scumbags everywhere.

What a nasty person. Why, FL-9, why?

Did the entire congressional district suffer a psychotic episode on Election Day?

They were not calibrated correctly.
Thats all.
No big whoop.

Maybe with luck the National Enquirer will get pics of him in bed with Shelia Jackson Lee.

RWM, you are a gem:)

Like anyone thought that Cro-Magnon Buffoon would wait even at least until after Preezy of the United Steezy‘s reelection inauguration to be the psychopathic America loathing reprobate buffoon that he has already amply demonstrated he is down to his very soul.

Same old hat — Same old Cro-Magnon brain.

Alan Grayson — he works for you!

SD Tom on January 4, 2013 at 7:54 PM

Alan Grayson will continue his unstable ways as long as those serving in the House of Representatives allow him to do so. The sad thing is that he is not the only one that acts that way. In fact the actions of quite a few makes me wonder why commitment papers have not been issued on them. Most of them get away with it because of their race, Grayson does not have that luxury so he sticks out like a sore thumb.Censure used to work until the nuts took over and common sense was thrown out the window.

Grayson sucks.

He deserves no more in-depth analysis than that.

Dr. ZhivBlago on January 4, 2013 at 10:48 PM

The Republicans should run an add every week in his district showing off the latest crap he says.

Thank you. Now I have to wash my brain out with bleach.

Isn’t Florida’s District #9 where they send all the mentally ill and criminals after they do their time in institutions and prison? Based on their current representation, it is a resounding YES!

Tbone McGraw on January 5, 2013 at 11:16 AM

A true Democrat, that one.

Zorro on January 5, 2013 at 12:37 PM

If we still had any actual journalists in this country, one might have reminded that pile of crap that entitlements are UNSUSTAINABLE in their current form and devouring our entire budget. Well, that is… if we actually HAD a budget.

On a side note… it’s really obvious that the left is traumatized by the Tea Party. All we ever hear from sick, twisted idiots like Grayson is about how “terrorized” he feels after witnessing large gatherings of retirees and housewives holding cardboard signs like “Give Us Liberty, Not Debt”. {rolleyes}
Seems to me like we ought to dust off our placards and form up in front of the nation’s courthouses again.

Murf76 on January 5, 2013 at 1:25 PM

Alan Grayson is back in congress, and Allen West is gone. Says a lot about the direction of this country.

TarheelBen on January 5, 2013 at 6:58 PM

The people of Florida’s ninth district have chosen to return this cretin

People? Eggplants and old folks with dementia warehoused and shuffled on busses to “vote” for this SOB with assistance from Haitian “care takers”.

Escapees from the worst of Miami Beach hustled off to Tampa and St. pete to wait to die. I guess his schtick makes them laugh…since they don’t have to much to laugh about while they’re dribbling Gerbers sweet potatoes down their chins. He’s the new Shecky Green of the Century Village….wishing they could bring back the Pocono’s.

Yea…eggplants…they’re still veggies aren’t they?

Twana on January 6, 2013 at 2:02 AM

Hard for me to really work up any hate for this guy when it’s clear to me he’s “not right”. I dont think this is a case of pure stupidity, it’s some physical defect. Maybe he was hit in the head with a foul ball or something.

Dash on January 6, 2013 at 8:19 AM

To Twana:

HEY! Don’t insult Tampa and St. Pete! FL-9 is in the southeastern Orlando area. With the exception of Kathy Castor, all the House members from the Tampa Bay area are Republicans.

Ed in FL on January 6, 2013 at 12:02 PM

I’m still waiting for Grayson to play Private Pyle in the remake of “Full Metal Jacket.”
