RS Interview: Mark Oxner (R CAND, FL-09 PRI).
FL-09 is, of course, the district that Alan Grayson is currently hoping to carpetbag – apparently the poor fellow has discovered that he has precisely zero reason to exist, outside of Congress. It’s very sad – and the GOP is equally hopeful that they can stop him. I talked to one of the candidates last week: Mark Oxner, businessman. We discussed the race, and a | Read More »
Alan Grayson requests that Rick Santorum, ahem, ‘die quickly.’
That’s the most likely conclusion that one can draw, amazingly enough. Alan Grayson is typically precisely the sort of would-be domestic Taliban who might advocate the death of political… well, not ‘opponents.’ Rick Santorum is currently about three levels’ worth of influence above Grayson, and it’s Grayson’s fondest wish to shrink that disparity to two. So it’s very likely that the former Congressman from Florida | Read More »
Alan Grayson tries the Creigh Deeds electoral strategy…
…to wit, getting into the news by hitting stuff with his car*: Former U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson crashed into a Lynx bus in downtown Orlando about noon Saturday. [snip] Investigators said Grayson was driving a Mercedes, when he ran a red light and hit the bus. Glenn Reynolds notes that disregarding public safety to the point of injuring others while driving an expensive automobile to | Read More »
DCCC using Alan “K Street Whore” Grayson to fund other candidates?
This particular hypocrisy on the part of the Democratic party is almost… pure in its brazenness, really. It goes like so: the Democrats have put together a program called ‘Majority Makers’ where Democrats with good fundraising ability who are expected to win their elections are being tapped to spread some of that raised money around to candidates who aren’t doing so well. This in itself | Read More »
We shall have Alan Grayson to kick around some more.
The fellow is planning to run for Congress again. Alan Grayson is, of course, the frothing lunatic who was elected to FL-08 in 2008… and then promptly lost his first re-election in 2010, mostly because he was, well, a frothing lunatic who called his opponent (one Daniel Webster*) a member of the Taliban and made up stuff about Webster at a level not usually seen | Read More »
The anti-Alan Grayson ad that wrote itself.
More accurately, it’s the anti-Alan Grayson ad that he himself wrote. I would love to add something to this, but, really: when it comes down to it, the best argument against Grayson is… Grayson. No summary needed. You know what he says about non-progressives, it’s all in there… and in thirty seconds, too. The NRCC outdid itself, really. Enjoy. And donate to Daniel Webster‘s campaign.
Grayson delendum est.
The NRCC wasted no time at all in reminding the world of what Alan Grayson likes to, frankly, spew on a regular basis: It’s actually an impressive video in its brevity: the temptation to make it a twenty-minute highlight of every vicious, sexist*, and bigoted thing that Grayson’s ever said must have been difficult. Which reminds me, Grayson: that Senior Policy Advisor of yours, Matt | Read More »

Democrats, signs, and hoisting on petards.
You get the feeling that possibly Democratic politicians are starting to get nervous about November: they’re starting to advertise anywhere that they can. Third Base Politics has the saga of Mary Jo Kilroy (D, OH-15), who put up a big honking sign at her HQ, then had to bring it back down for a zoning violation. Kilroy, of course, is the Congresswoman currently trying to | Read More »
Hey, what do these twelve legislators have in common?
This is via That’s My Congress, which is about to become very confused about why it’s getting traffic from a VRWC site. Here’s the list: Lois Capps Michael Capuano Ben Cardin Diana DeGette Eliot Engel Barney Frank Alan Grayson Carolyn McCarthy Bill Pascrell Adam Schiff Allyson Schwartz Heath Shuler …and they have two things in common. First, they’re all Democrats. Second, they all have email | Read More »

There should be a word for ‘blustering cowardice.’ Hmm. ‘Graysonian?’
In a previous post I wrote some unkind (note: not ‘inaccurate’) words about Jon Corzine, and how he’s not being especially brave this election cycle. Of course, given that this guy (Rep. Alan Grayson, D-FL) is held up as a standard for speaking-truth-to-power among the Left, maybe that’s not so surprising: That was taken from a larger clip done by O’Reilly and improved with several | Read More »
Barack Obama: Alan Grayson ‘outstanding member of Congress.’
Talk about timing: President Obama offered him some warm words at a Miami fundraiser for the Democratic congressional campaign committees last night. Obama, in introducing the members of Congress in attendance, called Grayson – along with Florida Reps. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Kendrick Meek – as “outstanding members of Congress.” This would be the same day that it came out that Alan Grayson went on the | Read More »
Grayson’s being goofy again, in a Lovecraftian sort of way.
And if you take a look at his Necronomicon*, you’ll see that people are already treating it with all the respect that such a grandstanding act deserves. Needless to say, I’ve already gotten the screen shot. Silly man. Moe Lane *Somebody should have told him what “book of the names of the dead” means in Latin. And note that I’m not assuming that he meant | Read More »
Three Congressional Seats of interest.
Just a quick survey: CA-10 (D+11): David Harmer isn’t quitting this particular special election, and he’s having a bit of fun with the… well, I don’t know what John Garamandi was trying to do here: …but I hope that he does it again. A lot. FL-08 (R+2): Alan Grayson opened his mouth again; apparently he’s under the impression that there are no such things as | Read More »
Did Grayson lie to the ADL? Did he *not* lie?
Rep. Alan Grayson (D, FL-08) has finally found a line beyond which he is personally not prepared to cross. While the Congressman may be prepared to lie about Republican intentions on health care, he at least knows enough to realize when he’s gone too far, as his respectful letter describing his ‘regrets’ to the Anti-Defamation League indicates. Via FoxNews: Florida Rep. Alan Grayson, who has | Read More »
So, basically, if you’re a Democrat in debt…
…from your last campaign, relax: the Online Left is a soft touch for that sort of thing. Happened with Bob Miller (remember him?); and now it’s happening for Rep. Alan Grayson. I heartily agree with my colleague Brian Faughnan on this one: I heartily endorse the idea of Democratic donors giving generously to Grayson’s Congressional campaign. It might enable Grayson to repay some of the | Read More »
Meet Representative Alan Grayson (D, FL-08).
Literally. I’ve read the Constitution several times, but I’ve never seen the part that says that elected officials are allowed to physically assault people who’d like to ask questions. Like, say, about his questionable earmark habits: Congressman Alan Grayson has had a close relationship with the civil rights group for which he tried to get hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars. As WDBO first reported, | Read More »
Rep Alan Grayson (D-FL), Freshman Congressional Idiot.
The moral of this story? Rep. Alan Grayson was standing in the middle of Disney World when it hit him: What Americans really need is a week of paid vacation. So on Thursday, the Florida Democrat will introduce the Paid Vacation Act — legislation that would be the first to make paid vacation time a requirement under federal law. Don’t let Congressmen go to Disney | Read More »
