The Lesson of Alan Grayson: When You Challenge These Bullies, They Crumple Like a Yugo

The congressman is not backing down.
Alan Grayson isn't giving any ground, nor should he:



I don't like Ed Schultz, but Grayson is awesome. He looks like an extra from The Sopranos, but he's smart as a whip, and he will not sit down and he will not shut up or be cowed by the likes of Michael Steele and Eric Cantor and the rest of the Republican fainting couchers. The Republicans ARE a lie factory, and their hypocrisy is positively jaw dropping. This is a party that has embraced the "birthers" and other crazies; a party whose own representatives have perpetuated the myth set forth by their Designated Idiot, Sarh Palin, that the government is going to exterminate old people...and now they're got their panties in a twist because a Democratic Congressman FINALLY has the balls to call them on their bullshit?

This should be a lesson to ALL Washington Democrats: When you actually challenge these bullies, they crumple like a Yugo.
