Amateur Hour on Hate Speech TV

Separated at birth?

Separated at birth?

MSNBC is neither a news network nor a ratings success, but it is good for one thing: taking the pulse of the Left. Judging by his numerous recent appearances, the Left has a new It-boy: Rep. Alan Grayson, D-FL, who made headlines by saying the Republican health care plan is for you to “die quickly.” Last night’s edition of Hardball with Chris Matthews gave Grayson another opportunity to display his cultivated intellect. Asked by Matthews to respond to Dick Cheney’s criticism of Obama’s Afghanistan (non-)policy, Grayson chose to uncork some Don Rickles one-liners:

Well, my response is — and by the way, I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes, because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he’s talking. But, but my response is this: he’s just angry because the president doesn’t shoot old men in the face. B-by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just turn into a bat and fly away?

Matthews, who had hailed Grayson earlier in the segment as “Captain Cojones,” goaned in disgust. Grayson (who rather resembles Bela Lugosi) proved with his comedic flop why he is the perfect spokesman for today’s Left….

A U.S. Congressman was asked for a serious reply to the most conspicuous attack on the president’s voting “present” on a war, and Grayson chose to utter an unbroken onslaught of personal insults against Cheney. (He never did answer the question.) To believe his words were funny, one must be either psychotic or blinded by sheer personal hatred. The insult route is vacuous, it’s easy, and evidently for Grayson, it works. He catapulted into left-wing stardom by calling everyone who opposes socialized medicine a murderer. He did this as others of his ideological ilk described the tens of thousands of average moms-and-dads at town hall meetings and tea bag parties as violent racists.

Alan Grayson perfectly embodies the MSNBC-Left: ignore foreign policy, keep hitting the snooze alarm on international conflagrations, find a scapegoat (or scapegoats) on the other side to serve as the butt of rambling hate-eruptions, and move on to demonizing the one-half of America or more that disagrees with you.

Alan, keep talking.

    Alan Grayson is the equivalent of what would have happened had Geoffrey Fieger waited to run for Congress and gotten swept into office on Obama’s coat tails. MSNBC would have had him on every other day, too.

    I saw that interview…take a good look at this man’s eyes. He has some nerve to talking about “blood dripping from teeth” and bats? Was that mean…I ask, as I bow my head and ask for forgiveness.

    Odd, I’ve never even thought that Dick Cheney looked like a nosferatu, but maybe his fangs bite a little too close to home for liberals. After all, they spew blood in all directions when his name is mentioned.

      Dick Cheney has the ultimate weapon against his foes, namely his mind and ability to articulate his thoughts coherently. This is something that is beyond Congressman Grayson’s capacity to comprehend in any way, much less understand. Apparently, according to this article, Chris Matthews even had reached the point of disgust with the purile antics of Grayson. I pity the constituents who have such a low quality legislator.

    I think Bela Lugosi would be a better suited for office than Alan Grayson. Dracula could be quite charming and witty, unlike Mr. Grayson.

    Tea parties – not tea bag parties.

    I am endorsing Todd Long to replace him.

      I think patricia Sullican, the Lady With moxie, who submitted a charge of violation of ethics against Grayson, would be better that Mr. Long. Grayson, called Cpatain Cojones by MSNBC has met someone who has some too, figureatively speaking, in Mrs. Sullican.

        Sorry, my typing is bad, I mean Patricia Sullivan! (not Sullican)

    Well as a conservative, I think Grayson is really a sick pup. But what would really be nice is if Grayson really got sick. Then maybe he would get what he claims us conservatives want for folks when they get sick. May he rest in peace.

    David F.,
    Fieger in any position with more visibility than that his current “defense” attorney position would be inhuman and a cruelty to anyone with a television.
