Hey Liberals. Here’s Your Hero, Alan Grayson, In His True Colors

Alan_GraysonThis is too funny:

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.

Now his colleagues in Congress are finally beginning to throw him under the bus:

“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.

It took long enough.  I mean, they had to wait for a comment disparaging a woman before speaking out?  As if “die quickly” wasn’t enough of a red alarm.

    Sometimes heated rhetoric is a well meaning persons worst enemy. There are so many schills for big money on capitol hill that even though Linda Robertson may be as described a politician is a target and will be held accountable for every slip. I tend to believe the man as he is calling every money sucking asshole out and is paying the price. People only scream when their horse is being gored.

    I said a month ago that the democrat leadership were bemoaning in public how they had no front man. No pit bull. During the Iraq war demonization they had John Murtha who was willing to stand up and proclaim daily, almost hourly how evil the Bush Administration was.

    Two days after this public outcry Mr. Grayson shows up. Michael Moore showed up and Moveon.org showed up to join the battle.

    Just as everything coming out of Rush Limbaughs mouth is exactly HOW the GOP sees it and how they feel……

    So too is exactly how the Democrats see it and feel coming from Mr. Graysons mouth. After all he was sent out to be the pit bull for the Democrats.

    Basically the Democrats think women in business are WHORES. Huh Mr. Grayson? Isnt that what you mean?

    What thats not what he means….The democrats dont believe that? Could it be that he didnt mean that other stuff either….you know like GOP wants you to die? Or maybe he did mean it…

    Which is it Democrats? Both or neither?

    I don’t speak for Robertson, or whatever party she may belong to, nor for the Republicans. I do speak against inappropriateness like Grayson’s, though.

    (*NO, WE WON’T HAVE THAT* – Ed.) Defending Enron lobbyists is almost as despicable as being a republican. Maybe people forgot the thousands of hard working Enron Americans who lost their retirement and savings because of people like Linda Robertson. Actually, now that I think about it, most of us HAVE lost over 50% of our retirement savings in the latest BANKING SCAM which almost caused our economy to collapse… oh what’s that? Linda’s now an adviser to bankers? It seems like wherever she goes, people lose their savings and retirement.
