Florida seems a most unfortunate place of late. They are infamous for Republican election theft, racist voter purges, a governor that demands drug testing so his own drug testing lab will profit, and the list goes on. But Florida has some great things too, and one of those things is Alan Grayson!

Definition of racist (adj)
[ ráyssist ]
based on racism: based on prejudices and stereotypes related to race
prejudiced against other races: prejudiced against all people who belong to other races
racist person: somebody who hates others who are not of his or her own race
Grayson has considerable evidence to find this definition fits many spokespersons in the TP

Sorry, TomCat, I commented on the Steward piece before having seen your title on this one, so pleas don't sue. ;-)
It's good to hear that finally some Democrat has the guts to tell his truth about the Tea Party, but Grayson using this to get some campaign funding in, really rubs me the wrong way. But then, I'm not used to all this campaigning where money seems more important than content and I hope I never have to get used to it.
So apart from the e-mails, Grayson seems a level headed and outspoken man who gets his political points across very clearly and without very much mud-raking. Even the Republicans had to listen to it three times before they took enough offence end were outraged enough to counteract.

Sorry, Cat Man, I agree with Alan on this one. Love me some Alan. It's refreshing to hear a LIBRAL telling it like it is in terms the Rethug Fascist Bastages understand. Let them be mad, upset and their usual whiny-a$$ed racist hate-mongers they are. The shoe fits, they wear it.

Of course the rethugs don't like Grayson, he speaks the truth which is not something they are used to dealing with or speaking themselves. Are they racist, you bet they are.

Yvonne is probably quite right. Grayson is a good man.
But, TomCat, among your listing of the horrors of Florida, you left out Jeb the Bush, who stole the election for Bubba, a ways back, AND that putz of a preacher from Gainesville, the one who held the Koran burning, and more.

"…For far too long you have given this group of racist, bigoted haters cover to keep being bigots and haters by legitimizing them. If one Congressman has the balls to call them what they are, he isn't the problem. Until we clean out the cancerous slime that dwells in the upper rims of hater hell by shining some light on who they really are, the disease will spread…."
This is one cancer for which there is a cure . . . do not elect a Teabagger or a Republicanus! Put them all in the unemployment line, PERMANENTLY!!!!!
Alan Grayson is spot on and owes nobody an apology. If the Teabaggers can`t handle the truth, then they should mend their ways! Fat chance that will happen.
