Congressman Alan Grayson is an idiot

Just when all that Joe Wilson BS has died down, we get this moron on the Congress floor and later on CNN spouting his drivel. He may have salient points, but his ridiculous comments and characterizations distract from anything positive he has to say. Joe Wilson is an undignified fool as well, don't get me wrong, but he at least apologized for his idiocy.

Lawrence O'Donnell points out in the video below that all this coverage is a great thing. WHY? Watch the video! The mainstream media makes me

Looks like it's not just Limbaugh making unnecessary, foolish, conversation-stopping Nazi Germany comparisons. And hey, unlike Rush, this one happens to be from an elected official!

You should have seen Ed Schultz the other day at the start of his show. He was all giddy, saying "Right on, brother. I'm right there with you." So much for civility post-Joe Wilson, right Ed? Though I can't expect much from a guy who thinks a significant number of conservatives straight-up want Obama dead, and his ratings show it. Even Rachel Maddow of all people denounced Grayson on her show last night.

By the way, that's not all this Congressman has said. He calls the Anti-Defamation League a "crazy, racist institution."

People who use "genocide", "communism", "socialism" just can't be taken seriously.

When will they learn?

That being said, comparing him to Joe Wilson is exactly apples to apples, all kinds of batshit insane things get said on the Congress floor(and they have that right), but Grayson didn't interrupt.

Can't they put all those idiots on a plane, bring them to Germany and give them some lesson about the history they are attempting to cite?.... wait, leave them there and try to educate them at home. But I would love to see both sides of the angle finally getting up and doing something about this bullshit of throwing comparisons and words around they don't have a fucking clue of. They don't do their country a favor that way, rather furthering the divide of the population thatis all too happy to pick that shit up and either recite it or using it to polemically brush the other side with a broad stroke.

It's not apples to apples. It's just undignfied crap. I could care less if Ed Schultz does his schtick or Olbermann, Beck, or Hannity. They are media personalities and entertainers. He is an elected official. To do that kind of crap after the Wilson fiasco is a distraction.

Joe Wilson was out of order and rude but otherwise correct in his assertion. Alan Grayson is the new Cynthia Mckinney and head of the Bozo-wing of the Congressional Democrats.

I would say Grayson was "otherwise correct" well before Wilson.

Well, the media's use of Joe Wilson and Grayson only distracts or provides cover for the governement/ Democrats creating new taxes or taxing healthcare benefits which Lawrence O'Donnell mentions with glee in the video I posted. LOL, the media fucking sucks.

I don't know about the world but certainly the end of a campaign promise.

Yeah, taxes are bad considering the amount of spending involved. I don't mind taxes if the money was spent well, but all evidence points to it NOT being spent well and whatever money they take, basically being thrown down bottomless well. Yeah, George Bush and the Repubs sucked as well in terms of spending

It's about time someone got up from the Democrats and did a little "flame-throwing verbiage" themselves after all the lies spouts by many Republicans in the congress in press conferences and on the floor itself, since & before Obama became President.

I e-mailed Rep Grayson and thanked him.

ANd sometimes Obama is too close to center for me. But he already has done some very good things, ,so I will disagree strongly when I have to, and cheer ever louder when he does wonderful things!!!
