Alan Grayson, a Democrat Not Afraid to Strike Back
At last there's a Democrat who's not afraid to get into the ring with the most outrageous Republicans. Alan Grayson freshman Democrat Congressman from a normally Republican district in Florida has been rocking the boat in Washington. Samples:
"If you get sick, America, the Republicans' health care plan is this: "Die quickly!"
On Dick Cheney: "I have trouble listening to what he says sometimes because of the blood that drips from his teeth while he's talking."
On Linda Robertson, Federal Reserve official and former Enron lobbyist: A "K Street whore!"
The K Street whore remark on a talk radio show brought a rebuke from Steny Hoyer, Dem majority leader and an apology from Grayson.
Grayson's hard hitting style isn't what one might expect from a graduate of Harvard and Harvard Law School as well as someone who clerked for Bork, Scalia and Ginsburg.

In recent weeks, Mr. Grayson has catapulted himself to national renown for outlandish rhetoric and a pugilistic political style that makes him seem less staid lawmaker than a character on the lam from one of his Orlando districts theme parks.
