Rep. Grayson spanks everyone on CNN

     Dems with guts? Dems who want to use our huge majorities to fight for real change, the kind we need after 8 years of Bush and 30 years and more of living under the iron heel of the Reagan years. Someone pinch me, I think I’m dreaming.

    What a week this guy is having! Between holding every contractor accountable and not just ACORN to calling the wingnuts on their lies and YOU LIEs, and then apologizing to the dead of our national health care horror story, and now this! I soooo want this guy to run for a state office (Senate, Gov) and then go BIG in 2016! or sooner!

Grayson pulls “Corporate Death Penalty” card! If ACORN goes down ALL Crook Contractors go down too

Crossposted at Daily Kos

“Death Panels” ain’t got nothing on this!

    How can you be for the Death Penalty and be against the “Corporate Death Penalty”?

    ACORN was smeared to death, and that sucks. So, how do we make the best of it?

    If ACORN must go, the rest of all the Bush Era Crooked Contractors you know and loathe will just have to go too.


    On Friday (Spet 25th), Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) inserted into the “legislative history” language spelling out that including all fraudulent organizations was, in fact, the intent of the Congress.


    “The bill imposes, and is intended to impose, a corporate death penalty on contractors who fall within the scope of its prohibitions.”

      What’s good for the goose, or, in this case, nut.

      More political judo below the fold.

Taibbi: Werewolf Grills Federal Reserve Stooge

Just watch the video after reading the contents of this link by Matt Taibbi.  I’ve lifted a paragraph from Mr. Taibbi so you have a better understanding of exactly what you’re watching.

I have personal experience with… well, let’s call it the unique personality of Alan Grayson. In his capacity as an attorney he once basically threatened to have me dismembered and have my body parts dumped in a tin canister and fired into the center of a burning supernova. And that’s actually underselling the real language he used. We were having a disagreement about the use of information given to me by a certain source in a story about military contracting, and in the middle of what had been a normal contentious argument between two sane adults, dude suddenly assumed this crazy monster-voice and just went medieval on me. He was roaring into the telephone about how he was going to crush me, how I was going to wish I had never messed with him, how I didn’t know who the hell I was dealing with, and so on. One phrase I remember in particular was, “I am going to strip the bark off of you!” It came totally out of the blue and it was like being on the telephone with a metamorphosing werewolf – the whole performance genuinely freaked me out. I may even have peed a little, I can’t remember.

Now, ask yourselves this: are you or are you not glad that this guy seems to be on our side?
