Grayson reminds me of that old song "She's come undone."

She didn’t know what she was headed for; and when she found what she was headed for — it was too late.

I thought they moved beyond that after Watergate, but I was wrong.

I thought Grayson had moved past childish behavior when he left the 2nd grade; but I guess I was wrong...

Does anyone know Grayson’s background? I’ll bet his past is very rocky. Some people in the Orlando area oughta be able to dig up a lot on this miscreant.

Are ALL these critters on meds? Seriously, is there an excess of psychotropic meds in the water supply? What is wrong with these people? These critters and their insanity are making policy decisions, and laws that effect us all. Maybe we need to require daily drug testing. I cannot believe the likes of this deranged man actually got elected!!

This guy has gone off the edge. He needs to be put somewhere where he can’t hurt himself or others. There is no doubt that liberalism is a mental disorder. This guy is proof.

“I think it is very revealing. The Republican Party seems to be returning to its Nixonian roots. Corruption, lying, and spying. I thought they moved beyond that after Watergate, but I was wrong.”

I’ve also seen him with that goofy grin of his using the same old tired “tax cuts for the rich”

Grayson is beyond immaturity. The OP is right, he’s undone. They should be coming to take him away . . . ha ha ho ho hee hee

IIRC, he's Harvard law (that meets your prediction of a very rocky background). He claims to have made major millions in business prior to gracing the halls of Congress (which may or may not be true, the goon has obviously lost most if not all of his marbles).

I recently came across some interesting background on Grayson on this blog:

http://righthandedpitcher.blogspot.com/2009/10/congressman-grayson-briefly-spent-time.html

His opponent conservative Republican Dan Fanelli is a graduate of the US Naval Academy.

Get to know Dan here and help him ‘retire’ Grayson early: http://www.electdan2010.com

Wrong, Mr. Grayson:

The only disturbance at your one and only Orlando Health Care Town Hall meeting was 1000 people outside yelling. “Let us in!”

You had arranged for a union hall that would seat only 126 people. You stacked the room with 95 local Dem officials, ACORN members and Organizing for America (Obama Youth) members.

I know, I was number 20 let into the room.

Outside were 1000 people, in a hot Florida August night. Some were WWII and Korea vets in wheel chairs, others were seniors, others were just people who wanted to hear the truth.

You shut them out. You talked for about 55 minutes, listened for about 5 and only answered questions your staff picked for you to answer.

Yoy brought your three children with you. After an hour, you left, claiming it was past their bedtime.

So, no Sir, it was not the same people... but in a way it was.... they're called voters... and they are your ticket to NOT go back to Washington.

You betcha we are going to do it right! All we need to do is make sure the voters in District 8 get to know about Lt.Comdr Dan Fanelli! Dan is the man we need to face Grayson in November!

Here is a short clip of Dan when he appeared on Red Eye recently. Dan is a common sense conservative and he has a great sense of humor too!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USku0iRbfaA

I hope Freepers everywhere will check out Dan's web site and consider helping in any way they can to spread the word and send a donation. Even $10 for the cause will help as just $10 from a lot of folks adds up. We have to remember that Dan is up against the Grayson millions and the Socialist/DEM Machine millions.

Too bad he is in the next district from mine here in Orlando area....because I would enjoy voting against him in the next election

We got Suzanne “Kookmas” Kosmas.....who was against ObamaCare before she voted for it....unlike Grayson...who seems to be everywhere....Kookmas is nowhere to be found.

This week....they are having a townhall meeting with Suzanne Kookmas....without inviting her. TEA Party people around here getting clever.....

In addition, Kipling stated that Grayson’s campaign had a glaring omission. During 1988, when Grayson had just turned thirty and while working for the Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson law firm, he spent four days in the Psychiatric Institute of Washington. What the cause of this stay was is yet unclear, although testimony from co-workers suggests that Grayson was extremely combative with fellow employees, including slapping a female intern in the face. Grayson was released after PIW doctors declared him “not to be a threat to the public.”

What kind of quack doctors did that?
The guy is clearly a public menace. You don't need a medical degree to see that. Hopefully, he will end up back in the lunatic asylum where he belongs.

I havent been able to find any polling, perhaps because so many people have filed for his seat (> 12). I assume we will see polls after the primary.

I have seen articles describing him as vulnerable, not because of his moronic behavior, but because of high unemployment in his district. However he has been able to bring home lots of pork, so that may lessen his vulnerability.

I really want to see him go and do wonder whether internal polls showing poor prospects are contributing to his meltdowns.

“Is there any recent polling on this fool?”

I have not heard the latest polling. I do know that Grayson has even been an embarrassment to the DEMS!

We Floridians are focusing on vetting candidates for the Primary Election which comes August 24th. In Grayson’s FL District 8, Dan Fanelli is the best to face Grayson in November. The other candidates running are nice people, but Dan has the leadership qualities and experience we need in Congress. He is a true Constitutional Conservative who will faithfully honor his oath! Check him out, and you will see what I mean!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USku0iRbfaA

NOTE: Dan just recently had a serious web site problem, so some of the information from his original site is not there. Know it all will be back up soon.

I am from St.Pete, so can't vote for Dan Fanelli either, but am voting with my donations and spreading the word about Dan being the one we need to face Grayson! Like I said earlier, even small donations help the grassroots candidates because that need all the help they can get!

Check out the candidates in your District 24 who are running in the Primary to face “Kookmas” in November.
Then get with other grassroots folks in your District and help that candidate all you can. We Floridians MUST take on every Socialist DEM in our state! We can do it too!!

I am of the opinion that is what *he* is trying to do. He would like nothing better than to be attacked so that he has something else to bray about.
