Rep. Grayson tells Cheney to 'STFU'

Rep. Grayson tells Cheney to 'STFU' By Eric Zimmermann - 12/09/09 06:02 PM ET

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) has done it again.

Appearing on MSNBC's "Hardball" Wednesday night, the Florida Democrats used a colorful acronym to respond to Dick Cheney's criticisms of President Obama.

"You know, on the internet there's an acronym that's used to apply to situations like this. It's called 'STFU.' I don't think I can say that on the air, but I think you know what that means," Grayson said.

That acronym is short for "Shut the f**k up."

Last night, Cheney had lashed out at President Obama's decision to give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a civilian trial in federal court.

"He'll be as important or more important than Osama bin Laden," Cheney said about the plotter of 9/11. "And we will have made it possible. We will have given him that platform, that opportunity, to come here and there is absolutely no need to do that."

Cheney also accused Obama of giving "aid and comfort to the enemy."

Grayson recalled that it was the Bush administration who was close to the Saudi royal family.

"I remember Bush Junior kissing Prince Abdullah on the cheek, and then holding his hand for an extended period of time," Grayson snapped. "Maybe if he'd let him get to second base, then gasoline would be a dollar a gallon."

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) slammed Grayson's colorful remarks.

“The foul mouthed man-child from Orlando is at it again, taking to the airwaves to bring shame to struggling Central Florida families who want jobs, not nut-jobs," said Andy Sere, spokesman for the NRCC. "But speaking of bases, Alan Grayson’s constituents surely find themselves wishing his parents had never gotten past first.”

Grayson is prime candidate for a hunting accident.
I wonder if he would accept an invitation to go hunting with Cheney. /s

Cheney is one of those quiet kind of guys I would never say that to...not even indirectly.

Yikes.

Dang! That's about the sharpest barb I've heard from a party flack in quite a while. Usually takes a blogger to go that far.

Keep eating your Wheaties there, NRCC.

Rep. Grayson does NOT want to get into a battle of wits with Dick Cheney, because the Rep. WILL be unarmed.

Grayson is mentally ill and out of control. The only reason most of us even know who he is is because of his loony outbursts (mostly directed at VP Cheney).

I’m not really thrilled with NRCC’s response, though. It was childish in my opinion.

Hmmmmm....Cheney or Grayson...one is a brilliant former Secretary of Defense with vast knowledge of national security policy, and to put it diplomatically, the other guy is not. Who is brilliant and who isn’t?...lol. My money is on Cheney as the brilliant man.

Yeah, they sunk to Grayson’s level with the line about Grayson’s parents. They should know better. Grayson will sink himself no need to go down with him.

Horrible response by the NRCC.
Grayson's job is to keep the moonbats happy, and by responding to him, it keeps him in the news and distracts from Obama's agenda.
This is why Governor Palin has the support she has. She is taking on big fish - the Obama agenda and stopping it in its tracks - while the RNC and the other two branches want to get in the mud with some loud-mouth Congressman.

The GOP needs to start looking at the big picture here.

Lovely example of MSM bias in the article. Cheney “lashed out”, but Grayson’s remarks are “colorful”. Now I know if I tell someone to STFU, why, I’m just being “colorful”.

Childish? I think not. It was the perfect response ...in the only lingo the idiot leftists can comprehend. Snark.

Sere shot back at Grayson and nailed his worthless hide verbally. Ya gotta admire that rare talent in a GOPer (these days).

“The foul mouthed man-child from Orlando is at it again, taking to the airwaves to bring shame to struggling Central Florida families who want jobs, not nut-jobs,” said Andy Sere, spokesman for the NRCC. “But speaking of bases, Alan Grayson’s constituents surely find themselves wishing his parents had never gotten past first.”

I keep egging the idiot on...3 e-mails in 4 months to up date his resume. Now I have to drop to his level and tell that blowhard to STFU, (and of course remind him to update his resume. Now its time to energize the folks in his district to find and fund his replacement. He is so stiff I expect a team from NCIS to draw a chalk line around him at any time. ( I know I borrowed this line from Dennis Miller)

What a dope
Grayson recalled that it was the Bush administration who was close to the Saudi royal family

So what recent half breed elected chicago pol., looked like He was bent over for services on a King from the Royal Saudi Family?

Not Cheney

I think the NRCC response was gutter, not witty snark. You say this is the only thing leftists can understand, but I don’t think the NRCC should be pandering to gain leftist reactions and/or understanding, rather making the case to most American voters without stooping to Grayson’s level.

I’m with you, KJC1, that the NRCC should not have responded in kind. I disagree with you that it was gutter and not witty, though. Sere’s comeback was, imho, funny—but all wrong coming from the NRCC.

My answer to that would have been, yeah, but Bush isn’t the one that bowed to every king, emperor and 2-bit leader in the known world. That would be O-as-in-zero-BAMA.

And at least under Bush, due to his “friendship” with the Saudis....where he announced he was opening up domestic drilling again... gas prices went back down right before the election.

Did we ever really find out what caused the sharp and rapid spike in gas prices in ‘08? So much has happened since, I can’t even remember.

You’re emailing Grayson? Since he likes acronyms, tell him to KMA while he’s packing up his office stuff.

No more playing nice with these DemocRat morons. Look where playing nice has gotten us so far.

This is the same Alan Grayson that called Linda Robertson, an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, a "K Street whore."

This caused Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) to comment, "Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?" Such a comment from a fellow Democrat speaks loudly about Grayson's standing with his own party.

It was also Grayson that described the Republican's health care plan as one that would cause Americans to "die quickly," and that "Their idea of health care reform would be to allow you to take your gun to the doctor's office." His shoot from the hips rhetoric has his Orlando constituents satisfied that they have a congressman who tells it like it is. "If our plan's so bad, where's yours?" Grayson said from the House floor. "You can't fight something with nothing."

However, Grayson's effort to attract attention is wearing thin. If we think the Orlando area is amused by their congressman, this cartoon sums up their growing embarrassment with him:
