Congressman Alan Grayson is an embarrassment to both his home state of Florida and the Congress he sits in. This time, however, he may have bit off more than he can chew,as he has decided to take on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
Grayson has never been known as a man of class, there was that little rant on the house floor, “If you get sick, America, the Republicans’ health care plan is this: Die quickly.” Or that appearance on the Obama Network, MSNBC, when he said of former Vice President Dick Cheney: “I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking,” he also called Fox News the enemy of America, a female adviser to the Federal Reserve chairman “a K Street whore.”
Probably his “slimiest” attack is when he was on Hardball and suggested that Vice President Dick Cheney to “STFU,” and speculated that gasoline would only cost a dollar per gallon if former President George W. Bush had let Saudi Prince Abdullah “get to second base” causing Mr. Leg Tingle Chris Matthews told him to watch his crude language.
On Friday Sarah Palin gave a speech at a Republican fundraiser in Grayson’s home district and said in part:
take our poll - story continues below
“[W]hat can you say about Alan Grayson? Piper is with me tonight, so I won’t say anything about Alan Grayson that can’t be said around children. But thank you, Florida, for allowing candidates in a contested primary to duke it out over ideas and principles and values, all with the same goal, and that is unseating those who have such a disconnect from the people of America. That’s what the goal is here in this race against Alan Grayson. Please fight hard, and do this for the rest of the country. Fight hard, and send a conservative to Washington, DC.”
Nothing particularly nasty, but the response by the Village Idiot of the Democratic Congressional Caucus was in his usual classless over-the-line style:
“I look forward to an honest debate with Governor Palin on the issues, in the unlikely event that she ever learns anything about them,” he said.
The email continues: “Scientists are studying Sarah Palin’s travel between Alaska and Florida carefully. They hope to learn more about the flight patterns of that elusive migratory species, the wild Alaskan dingbat.
Let me suggest that Palin would wipe the floor with the Honorable Crybaby from the State of Florida. I doubt if Grayson has ever had to debate a “Lady” with brains. Grayson is like the child who doesn’t know that there are lines that adults don’t cross. Children like Grayson do not belong in elective office. They belong to have their mouths washed out with soap, and sent to bed without dinner. Grayson could use to skip a few meals anyway, he keeps on getting mistaken for one of the Orcas at Sea World.
