Alan Grayson's re-election fight

(CNN) - Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson from Orlando, Florida, is known for speaking his mind.

It was Grayson who barreled onto the House floor last year to summarize the Republican health care plan as: "If you get sick, die quickly." It was Grayson who compared former Vice President Dick Cheney to a vampire. It was Grayson who called a lobbyist-turned-federal-reserve employee a "K Street whore."

When we asked Grayson about being referred to as "one fry short of a happy meal" he assured us he was not crazy in the truest sense of the word.

"Everybody is entitled to their opinion but I can tell you that if working hard and delivering for people is better, then that may make me crazy. If that's what it takes to call somebody crazy ... then I'm guilty as charged."

    Great campaign add CNN. I would not vote for this guy to be a dog catcher.

    Dems have little chance of re-election, in mid-terms.

  4. Grayson's got to go

    Alan Grayson is an idiot. He has no ideas beyond 'attack the opposition'. His presentation about healthcare was a disgrace and his continual belittling of American (Florida) voters is getting old.

    I'm sorry, but no matter how smart Grayson thinks he is, it is more apparent that he's no more than a snarky dimwit that makes too much money for very little work.

    We need 150 more Alan Graysons in Congress, maybe then we could get this country turned right side up!
