The rise of Occupy Wall Street and the topic of income inequality in the media has giving a bit of a second wind to the currently stalled career of former Congressman Alan Grayson, and he has returned to the spotlight with gusto. The Congressman visited the Ed Show to give his take on how much he opposes divisive politics, and in doing so compared the complaints of such division from Rep. Paul Ryan to OJ Simpson pretending someone else was responsible for the murders he was accused of.

Talking to host Ed Schultz, Grayson responded to comments by Rep. Ryan that the President was encouraging divisiveness in politics. For Paul Ryan or any Republican to talk about the President inciting the politics of division is much like OJ Simpson saying hes going to devote his life to finding the real killer theyre the real killers! he exclaimed. He then cited several examples of what he thought was partisan politics at play, from Nixons Southern Strategy to an insistence, he claimed, of dividing Americans along cultural lines. Give me a break, he concluded.

Schultz then turned to comments by Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Senate candidate for the Democratic Party, that no one in capitalism gets rich without the government. Rep. Ryan considered the comments extreme and, of course, Grayson found his response silly. To Grayson, it ignored a tremendous growth in the wealth of the wealthy and the poverty of the poor which was the problem the Occupy Wall Street movement seemed most concerned by. This meant a choice between class warfare and class surrender, of which Grayson chose the former.

That twit Grayson is still alive and making public statements?Imagine my disappointment upon hearing this....
Why watch? He is just another carnival clown with all the same schtick.
Alan Grayson is the REAL Alan Grayson idiot extraordinaire.
.....oh, I get it, because he's loose and might have access to firearms.
OK someone at the mental institution this guy has been staying at is gonna get demoted. Who let him out of his rubber room
How do these morons get away with making these outrageous statements? Enough is enough. They figure they can slander and get away with it. We have enough liars in the World all ready, without the Democrats showing how good they are at it.
Or did I misunderstand that whole story?
The Good People spoke at the polls and Mr. Grayson is no longer an office holder. I fear that the Obama people will offer this Looney Tune a job in D.C.!
Oh, I wouldn't worry about that either. He probably would know as much about them as this guy did.
They lay with dogs and they get fleas!!!
Because people get elected for promising everything free even if they know it will destroy the country. The entire Democratic Party and some Republicans will drive us off the cliff for their egos and payoffs.
Someone needs to tell this sicko that his 15 minutes are up.
Grayson is one of the OWS’s 1% - he’s a whining multi-millionaire. Bah!
Too bad Gore’s not running again — Grayson would be his perfect running mate. Both are immature, hate-filled, insane prima donnas.
Who is Alan Grayson?
I am so tired of the Democrats accusing the Republicans of exactly what they are guilty of and we don’t constantly hammer them with it.
Someone forgot to lock the door in the bell tower. quasimoto lives!
