Red Eye: Ultimate Proof Alan Grayson Sucks
No words are sweeter to the English language or roll off the tongue as easily as “Congressman Alan Grayson.” Smooth, sophisticated, honest: These are all hallmarks of the Grayson we’ve come to know and love.
When fomenting for Obamacare, the erstwhile politician argued against the Party of No by stating the following (which is still on his website)
[the Republicans] have … no plan. It’s been 24 hours since I said that. Where is the Republican plan? We’re all waiting to see something that will take care of the pre-existing conditions, to take care of the 40 million Americans who have no coverage at all. That’s what I meant when I said that the Republican plan is don’t get sick. And if you do get sick, die quickly.
Never mind Obamacare was loosely modeled on the health care system in Massachusetts attributed to Mitt Romney: a Republican. And that it’s failing. Badly. That’s one of the many, many reasons the GOP is against Obamacare, congressman. We’ve been there, done that and redistributed the t-shirts.
Grayson has always been the model of civility and statesmanship.
Here he is, disrupting a GOP meeting at a Perkins
It was highly surprising when he launched this heretofore unprecedented attack ad on his opponent for the congressional seat last Friday, as “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld mentioned on the most recent episode of my favorite Fox News show.
Here’s a video showing Grayson’s ad, and then his opponent’s actual remarks in context
When Grayson implied Webster claims women should submit to him, he’s – to use technical political terms – a big fat lying doo doo head.
Said guest, Leean Tweeden
As a woman, I am offended. What an ass! That guy is a complete jerk. Women in America have probably come farther than in any other country in the world.
Sing it, sister! Grayson claims Republicans have created a climate of “fear.” Yet, somehow claiming his opponent is a member of a terrorist organization is noble. Claiming Daniel Webster wants to oppress women – even implying in context they should be stoned (because that’s what the Taliban does) – is great! Because, hey, Grayson is just a big old teddy bear who just wants hugs and love for everyone.
Guam, apparently, has tipped my friends. The world is now upside down.
As Gutfeld’s loathsome sidekick, Bill Schulz, pointed out about Grayson
I thought he had some really progressive views on women.
TV’s Andy Levy pointed out during the Halftime Report
At this point, even MSNBC has gone after Grayson. And when you’ve lost MSNBC…
And, indeed, here’s Contessa Brewer confronting Grayson
Oops. Looks like Grayson just lost those voters who watch MSNBC, at least. All four of them.
“We could argue endless about whether it’s in context, out of context … whatever.”
Um, no. You could argue endlessly, Congressman Grayson. You’ve lied, and we all just caught you doing it.
Now, here’s Daniel Webster’s ad
Perhaps all of this is why one MSNBC blogger concluded
NBC’s First Read puts this race in the top 30 of its “Field of 64” House seats likely to change hands in November.
Or, as Levy said
The candidates for this district are The Devil and Daniel Webster
Bye bye, Alan. At least you’ll still have your health.
