Rep. Alan Grayson strikes again, twice actually...
The first video is from MSNBC’s The Ed Show (via Jason Easley at PoliticusUSA):
The second video (from MSNBC's Hardball).:
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) was on MSNBC’s The Ed Show tonight where he called Fox News the enemy of America. He said they are the enemy of anyone who cares about healthcare, education, energy independence, peace, or anything good for America. Grayson said, “Fox News and their Republican collaborators are the enemy of America.”
Here is the video:
Grayson said Fox News and the Republicans is the enemy of America, “You know Fox News and their Republican collaborators are the enemy of America. They’re the enemy of anybody who cares about healthcare in this country. The enemy of anybody who cares about educating their children, the enemy of everybody who wants energy independence in this country, or anything good for this country, and certainly the enemy of peace, there’s no doubt about that. They are the enemy.”
In it, Chris Matthews asks Rep. Grayson what he thinks of the DICK Cheney's attacks on President Obama for "dithering" on Afghanistan. It was a bit much for Chris, as you'll see, (as it was for even some progressive site like TPM) but I say, who cares? Who the fuck cares if it was over the top? It's Dick Fucking Cheney.
"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," said Grayson. "But my response is this: He's just angry because the president doesn't shoot old men in the face. But by the way, when he was done speaking, did he just then turn into a bat and fly away?"
Names of the Dead. Com:
While criticizing Senator Jon Kyl for saying 'I'm not sure it's a fact' that lack of health insurance causes people to die, Rep. Grayson introduced his new website Names of the Dead. Com on the House floor. It honors the memory of those that lost their lives because they had no healthcare or health insurance (h/t CornSyrupAwareness):

Alan Grayson Introduces Amendment to Stop People From Going Broke or HomelessRep. Grayson calls for an annual financial autopsy done by the Consumer Financial Protection Agency. If a financial product or service is causing a lot of people to go broke or bankrupt, the CFPA will restrict or ban it. Specifically, this amendment will compel the CFPA to do an annual scientifically valid study in every state and territory to find out which products are causing people to go broke or bankrupt. Based on this study of foreclosures and bankruptcies, the CFPA will lay out the root causes of these financial catastrophes, make recommendations, and take corrective action under the authority of this act.
