Grayson Guest Posts

Of all people, I’m going to let Rep. Alan Grayson, Democrat of Florida’s District 8 -Fla. unwittingly do a guest post for me today.

He’s a real gadfly, and on his Web page, he decided to react to Sarah Palin’s visit to Florida, where she attacked Grayson.

Maybe the snarkiness is unbecoming of a Congressman, and maybe it’s unfair to go after Palin like this, but I have to admit, it’s still a lot of fun.

So Rep. Grayson, take it away:

“On Friday night, Sarah Palin came to Orlando, and attacked Rep. Alan Grayson. This is what she said:

I got to meet quite a few candidates who are lining up in a contested primary who want to take out Alan Grayson. And I think Alan Grayson — what can you say about Alan Grayson? Piper is with me tonight, so I won’t say anything about Alan Grayson that can’t be said around children. [Good one, Sarah!] But thank you, Florida, for allowing candidates in a contested primary to duke it out over ideas and principles and values, all with the same goal, and that is unseating those who have such a disconnect from the people of America. That’s what the goal is here in this race against Alan Grayson. Please fight hard, and do this for the rest of the country. Fight hard, and send a conservative to Washington, DC.”

Palin, the former half-term Governor, current-nothing and future-even-less, charmed the all-Republican audience with her folksy folksiness and her homespun homespunnery. Atypically, Palin was wearing clothes that she had paid for herself. At the end of the event, she shared her recipe for mooseface pie.

In response to Palin’s attack on Rep Grayson, Grayson actually complimented Palin. Grayson praised Palin for having a hand large enough to fit Grayson’s entire name on it. He thanked Palin for alleviating the growing shortage of platitudes in Central Florida. Grayson added that Palin deserved credit for getting through the entire hour-long program without quitting. Grayson also said that Palin really had mastered Palin’s imitation of Tina Fey imitating Palin. Grayson observed that Palin is the most-intelligent leader that the Republican Party has produced since George W. Bush.

When asked to comment about what effect Palin’s criticism might have, Grayson pointed out, “As the Knave’s horse says in Alice in Wonderland, ‘dogs will believe anything.'” Earlier, as the Orlando Sentinel reported, Grayson said, “I’m sure Palin knows all about politics in Central Florida, since from her porch she can see Winter Park,” which is part of Grayson’s district.

Grayson said that the Alaskan chillbilly was welcome to return to Central Florida anytime, as long as she brings lots of money with her, and spends it. “I look forward to an honest debate with Governor Palin on the issues, in the unlikely event that she ever learns anything about them,” Grayson added, alluding to Politifact‘s “liar, liar, pants on fire” evaluation of much of what Palin has said .

Scientists are studying Sarah Palin’s travel between Alaska and Florida carefully. They hope to learn more about the flight patterns of that elusive migratory species, the wild Alaskan dingbat.”

Me again.

Ouch. Don’t ever let me stand between Palin and Grayson. I think they’d need to send United Nations peace keeping troops if the two ever meet face to face.

    Bravo Grayson! about time someone gave this Alaskan-Grifting-Granny a taste of her own medicine — sincerely hope she runs in 2012 exposing her as mincing/winking jukebox of GOP talking points — rest assured, we’ll be hearing lots more from Murdoch/Ailes/Rove & Co’s pinup doll — Fox is installing in-home studio in new Palin family chateau on Lake Lucille…

    Fox hair will be big…lies bigger, skirt short, heels high and word salad tossed…

    THIS IS THE BEST LINE EVER…..EVER. Palin, the former half-term Governor, current-nothing and future-even-less, charmed the all-Republican audience with her folksy folksiness and her homespun homespunnery.
