Florida Rep. Alan Grayson is back in Congress, and he’s wasting no time messing around with that “new tone” jazz we hear about every term. Speaking with progressive radio host Stephanie Miller yesterday, Grayson let listeners know he’s (kind of) keeping up with current events, calling his Republican colleagues who voted against the $9 billion Sandy relief bill the “bath salts caucus.”

Miller herself suggested “zombie caucus” to describe what Grayson said were members of the GOP who would “rather eat your face than cut taxes on the rich.”


No one who has been paying attention should be surprised to hear this from Grayson, who said that Republicans “want you to die quickly if you get sick.” Besides, cut taxes on the rich? That doesn’t even make any sense. Whatever: it got a laugh. Fans of the congressman were glad to hear he was back in action.

Yeah, no. Grayson’s campaign website can still be found at congressmanwithguts.com. Is it wrong for us to want to see a showdown between “Guts” Grayson and a horde of GOP zombies?

    Hmmm….Grayson in, Allen West out, two sides of the same coin IMHO, but still all the same, how do you conservatives feel about that?

    • Zanshi

      What Allen West said was true. What Alan Grayson spews are nothing but lies and inflammatory hyperbole. Allen West is a black conservative; Alan Grayson is a white guilt infused, bloated gas-bag of a liberal. That’s how I feel.

      What do you mean “two sides of the same coin”? Is that some sort of racist dog-whistle code-phrase? See, we don’t really care that either of them is black. We care about their politics and their vision of America. We would have the same disdain for Grayson as if he was a wealthy old white man who rose to power as part of the KKK, like the late Sen. Robert Byrd (D).

        Uhh Grayson is not black, lol, but whatever

    • TomJB

      If by “two sides of the same coin” you mean the literal definition of 2 sides diametrically opposed, then yes. Grayson will say whatever he needs to say to get money from whoever he is talking to; West has integrity. Thats pretty much as far as one need to go.

    I can NOT believe this moron is back. Voters are really ignorant.

  • traffic_robot

    Cue the fail. I’m sure Grayson had that cute little line on deck, spit it out and bungled it royally. In the meantime, everyone was giving him the obligatory, “UP TOP!” before they realized what he said made no sense. Yep, this is what you get when you elect morons who campaign on emotional strawmen and snarky soundbites.

      It was the bath salts talking.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Hey, Grayson! Dare ya to do the Thriller dance!

  • ceemack

    I’d say that I can’t imagine how Floridians could have re-elected as big an idiot as Alan Grayson, but here in California we re-elected Diane Frankenfeinstein.

    • kate_middleton

      Well….thankfully the good people of Florida didn’t re-elect him in 2010.

      Sadly, a Dem-friendly district opened up – and that’s where he was elected in 2012. Which unfortunately means we’ll probably be hearing from this d-bag for a long time to come.
      Dems should be embarassed of him.

        Dems are the majority of bath salt users, they elected him.

      • mickeyco

        Nothing embarrasses a Dem.

    • TomJB

      Yep, at least with Grayson, Floridians can blame jerrymandering… Sorry to say, but I think CA was a lost cause a decade ago.

    Posted a comment a while ago saying it was a shame that this vile douche bag had resurfaced. Someone responded “turds float”.

      Just toss some paper on top of him, and hold down on that handle when you flush.

    Its baaaaaaaaaaaack

  • grais

    So, Grayson wants to cut taxes on the rich and he wants sick people to die slowly.

    Strangely enough, he’s uglier on the inside than he is on the outside.

    Alan Grayson is an Alvin Greene wannabe.

  • Slapweasel

    This guy is as dumb as a mud hat.

  • SonsOfMontesQ

    unfortunately this asshat is my congressman. happen to live in the infamous I-4 corridor in Florida. ugh. honestly not surprised he got elected tho. people around here care more about the rims on their ’94 corollas, and cutting the springs on their WIC-wagons so low they have to use their brights to see the road at night, than they do about what’s best for the country. or even themselves.

    they eat his particular kind of shit right up. doesn’t matter if it makes sense. it’s all about image.

    quick tip to know if you’re in a bad neighborhood or not: look at the 7-11s. do they have Redboxes? Yes = okay neighborhood. No = bad neighborhood (even Redbox won’t go there).

    Grayson is so full of it, he’s like a coke mule on a diverted flight.

    The height record for stacking fecal matter was broken when Grayson stood up,
