AT LAST! A DEMOCRAT WITH COJONES TAKING IT TO THE REPUBLICANS

This is priceless! I’m sure I’m not the only one to have entertained the fantasy of going to Congress and ripping the hell out of those Republican bastards for their immoral policies, taking no prisoners. At last we have one fearless model of how the Democrats should conduct themselves, not only in Congress, but also on the Senate Finance Committee.

The Republicans are bastards; they’re scum; they’re liars; they have no interest in the public good or enacting meaningful healthcare reform. It’s that simple.

Bravo, Congressman Alan Grayson, of Florida, for not just talking the talk of “calling them out,” but actually doing it.



And here’s the icing on the cake. When Republicans demanded an apology (see above), this is what Congressman Grayson had to say to them:



"Let's remember that we should care about people, even after they're born." I love it! WOOT!

Editor's Note: Last night on the Rachel Maddow show, Congressman Grayson struck a more conciliatory tone toward his Republican colleagues. He said:

These people are uttelry unscrupulous. They’re foot-dragging, knuckle-dragging Neanderthals who know nothing but NO. One way or another we have to overcome it for the sake of the nation.

Then he said to Democrats:

People want a Democrat with guts. People want to see a Democratic Party with guts.

Amen.

I'd move to his district just to vote for him. Finally I'm hearing a politician say something that makes sense.

That first video, I couldn't even watch it until the end. Those Republicans..grr. Just more of the screw them and leave mine alone mentality. Like Glenn Beck just said in some rally in WA. It's more important to spend money on the war on terror than on health care reform.
This from the rich guy.
What an ass.
