America’s Worst Politician
Newsweek Magazine ^ | 10/24/10 | George Will

Posted on 10/24/2010 9:44:43 AM PDT by Nachum

ORLANDO—There are hundreds of plausible nominees for the title of America’s Second-Smarmiest Politician, but surely the top spot is un-contested. Americans of all political persuasions can come together in affirming one proposition: Public life would be improved by scrubbing Rep. Alan Grayson from it. This act of civic hygiene probably will be performed Nov. 2 by voters of Florida’s Eighth Congressional District. Polls indicate that a majority of them plan to deny Grayson, 52, a second term by electing his resonantly named opponent, Daniel Webster.

His concession speech should be interesting.

Grayson certainly is a poster child for the left.

A total lunatic. The man spent nearly 2 weeks in a mental institution and yet was never questioned about this last election.

civic hygiene


In this case I believe we're talking about anal floss.

We should run a poll on just exactly WHOM the craziest Demwit pol is! I would have voted for Sheila Jackson Lee who asked if the Pathfinder (on Mars) saw the Flags planted by astronauts in 1969.Hell, everybody knows that Nissan hadn't come out with the Pathfinder yet!

Now this Grayson clown may push her aside for the "honor."

There are only a few comments at the link, and a couple of them are stunning!

We could put them all on an island as long as they don’t run to the left side and sink it.

For some reason, I hear the voice of James Daughton as Gregg Marmalard saying “Well, that would be hard to say, sir. They’re each outstanding in their own way...”

Will takes a whack at Charlie (flip-flopper) Crisp in this article as well.

It was amazing that Grayson (the 911 truther) managed to get elected in this normally Republican district.

George Will might not be the most conservative person in the world, but he can turn a phrase.

Oh, my God! That's hilarious! There's a comedic sitcom writing term for that form of a joke but beats me.

Agreed. The one I like was "psychologically guillotined" when he pointed out the difference between earlier immigrants, who had to assimilate because they were too far from home, as compared to the current bunch who are culturally reinforced on a daily basis.

We still have 9 days to enjoy the antics of Orlando’s favorite “non-native son”, Alan G. He’s a national embarrassment, but - from here in central Florida - he’s our national embarrassment! Not to fret, though. In addition to the usual suspects of the Congressional Black Caucus (they’re a scream a minute, as they steal,like and promote marxist causes!), don’t forget we still have Sen. Stuart Smalley to lead the DC Chapter of the Insane Clown Posse!

Oh, BTW, saw Palin yesterday here in Orlando. She spent some time talking about our congressman from the Psych Party. She was hysterically funny, calling him repeatedly a “Jackwagon”!. That woman certainly has the proverbial velvet hammer. She skewered Obama, Pelosi and Reid repeatedly, and threw in a couple of body blows to Crist - but, she reserved special indignation for Alan G.

I never heard the word 'jackwagon' until a few days ago, when I saw this.

Excellent words need wide distribution, like this one got. Then one word can tell the whole story, which is good. Why waste too much breath on Grayson when there's more important stuff to talk about.

The interesting thing about Grayson is he’s merely saying in public the exact same things that progressives say in the privacy of their living rooms and places like HuffPo and DailyKos. It really makes me wonder if his world is so insular that he thinks this is the way everyone thinks and talks, and he’s merely parroting what he hears all the time, not realizing that most folks don’t think or talk that way.
