There are very few issues where Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and I agree. Perhaps the one area where we have the most common ground is that Florida Congressman Alan Grayson is a nut-job, or as Weiner said back in October, ” Is this news to you that this guy’s [Grayson] one fry short of a Happy Meal?”
Grayson is the embodiment of the nastiness that turns off voters. He is a master at the progressive style of political argument,”do not bring up facts, call them names.”
His latest nastiness on the floor of the House occurred just the other day when he made a speech before what seems to be a crowd of 7 congressmen saying that Republicans are opposing the extension of unemployment benefits because they want children to dig through garbage to find something to eat, forgetting the fact that the GOP supported the benefits, as long as there was a way to pay for them. For example there is still a pot of stimulus funds left unspent.
Congressman Alan Grayson is an embarrassment to both his home state of Florida and the Congress he sits in. Hopefully he will be defeated when he runs for reelection this November.
