The left-wing blogosphere practically went orgasmic when Alan Grayson (D-Fla) took to the floor of the House of Representatives and announced that the Republican health care plan was for sick people to “die quickly.” Hah hah. Money and fame flooded into Grayson’s coffers and ego, respectively. Turns out Grayson may have stolen the line from a HuffPo blogger.
When Grayson agreed to apologize for his comments — not to Republicans but to the dead — there was joy in liberal Mudville.
When Grayson referred to Republicans as “knuckle-dragging Neanderthals,” he was hailed as the one Democrat willing to stand up to Republican hissy-fits.
These left-wing bloggers practically split their collective guts when Grayson followed up with his death-list website listing the names of people who died from lack of health care insurance. It didn’t matter that Grayson’s figures were fictitious.
But the joy and the laughter of the left-wing blogs is becoming a nightmare for Democrats as day by day Grayson reveals himself to be an out-of-control buffoon.
Grayson referred to Dick Cheney as a vampire bat, and offered that any minute Cheney would fly away, causing even Chris Matthews to cringe. Grayson’s rant may have sounded good to the blogs, but it revealed Grayson to be on the edge of sanity.
Now it has been uncovered that last month in a radio interview Grayson called an adviser to Ben Bernanke a “whore” because she disagreed with Grayson on Fed policy. Democrats in Congress are not pleased:
Republicans and Democrats slammed Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) for calling Linda Robertson, an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, a “K Street whore” in a month-old radio interview that circulated on Capitol Hill Monday night….
“Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?” asked Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)
House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer defended Robertson, whom he said he knows. “I think it’s inappropriate and unfair,” the Maryland Democrat said. He decried the “heated rhetoric” that he said interferes with the ability solve problems.
Keep it up Alan. Stay in the spotlight. You are making our lives much easier. Be the face of the Democratic Party, please.
