Alan Grayson: The Most Despicable Man In Congress
Alan Grayson, if not the most unethical, sleazy member in Congress in my lifetime, certainly has the corner on the market in this Congress. He has proven time and again, through his completely outrageous statements, and outright lies, that he is a horrible excuse for a human being. He is a punk, a media whore, and a bully. I find it hard to believe that he represents the thoughts or beliefs of the majority of those in his district of central Florida. If he does, then that is just to depressing to think about. Below I am going to attempt to make my case that Alan Grayson is the most despicable person in Congress, using his own words. You decide if my instincts are right.
From FactCheck.org: We thought Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida reached a low point when he falsely accused his opponent of being a draft dodger during the Vietnam War, and of not loving his country. But now Grayson has lowered the bar even further. He’s using edited video to make his rival appear to be saying the opposite of what he really said.
Quite possibly, the most disgusting political ad ever released, just based on the complete lie that it perpetrates. Grayson accuses his opponent Dan Webster of being like the Taliban, showing a clip of Webster saying that women should "submit" to their husbands: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWdyf9eSkqQ
Here is the full context of the remark.
"So, write a journal. Second, find a verse. I have a verse for my wife, I have verses for my wife. Don’t pick the ones that say, ‘She should submit to me.’ That’s in the Bible, but pick the ones that you’re supposed to do. So instead, ‘love your wife, even as Christ loved the Church and gave himself for it’ as opposed to ‘wives submit to your own husbands.’ She can pray that, if she wants to, but don’t you pray it"
Now here is the "unedited" video of what Webster actually said: http://www.theblaze.com/blog/2010/09/28/alan-grayson-is-more-awful-than-we-thought-video/
Grayson and the false draft-dodger ad mentioned by FactCheck.org above: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9M2I_1VynQ
Here he is on "Hardball" with Chris Matthews saying the "Blood drips from Dick Cheney's teeth and some other oh so clever repartee'.
This is Grayson discussing the GOP plan for health care. "Part one, don't get sick. Part two, if you do get sick... Part three, die quickly." I guess this is what Grayson thinks is good comedy.
Grayson "apologizing to the dead" during the Health Care debate. He holds up a study claiming that 44,000 people a year die due to lack of health care, which is a straw man argument. Any man woman or child has to be treated, by law, if they go to a hospital in this country, whether they have insurance or not. His argument is flawed, and so is his so-called apology.
This is but a few of the outrageous and irresponsible things that this guy says. There are numerous others that you can find on YouTube and elsewhere. This guy is a disgrace, and should not be in any elected office. He lowers the level of discourse to its most base, disgusting level. The people of central Florida deserve better. Much better.
