An emboldened Alan Grayson makes "the biggest comeback in history of the House"



I've missed Alan Grayson the way John McCain misses the spotlight if he fails to make it onto a Sunday talk show.

Now that Grayson's back, I am relishing his Congressional presence and candor the way Dick Morris relishes toes. (Too far? Bygones.)

Roll Call:

Grayson said the House historian informed him the victory, a 43-point swing from his 2010 loss, was the biggest comeback in history of the House.

His lesson from the experience is to press on, full steam ahead.

Here's what he had to say about the GOP:

“They love the taste of blood. They’re consistently pro-war, consistently pro-killing foreigners. They view the entire world as either a massive inconvenience or something they feel is a personal threat. One or the other. They don’t recognize the world as full of human beings.”

Aw come on, Alan, don't hold back.

Love him or not, he's hard to ignore, he's straightforward, he certainly doesn't b.s. around. I personally admire his bluntness and feel that he makes great points in a memorable way while others are too timid, hypocritical, or beholden to their donors to take principled stands on any given issue.

Does he ever cross the line? Maaaybe, but so does pretty much everyone in politics, plus, he has a much greater track record of saying the right things at the right time.

President Obama aside, Alan Grayson and Elizabeth Warren were my biggest sighs of relief last November.

welcome back

  • I'll add a third to those big sighs: Chris Murphy in the Senate. He's not a firebrand, just a decent Dem who does his homework, but I'm SO glad we don't have to cope with Mrs. WrestleMania.

  • We need mor straight up truth telers in government. Legislators unafraid to fight the lies from "Bullshit Mountain" (Faux) and keep the American people informed about the real issues. We are tired of re-litigating Roe v Wade, the president's place of birth, Women's rights' voting rights, the right to join a Union, and need the electorate to know that "Right to Work" diminishes your rights, rigging elections is un-American, suppressing the vote goes against your constitutional rights, everyone has the right to health care. Europe moved toward National Health Care right after WWII, but America, the shining light of the world, pulled the plug.

  • "President Obama aside, Alan Grayson and Elizabeth Warren were my biggest sighs of relief last November."

    Same here!
