Ladies and Gentlemen, I might have been a little too hasty calling Rep. Alan Grayson “dead man running” for US Senate. It looks like Grayson will not go gently into that good night:
After months of hand-wringing by the Democratic Party establishment and cheerleading by members of the party’s progressive wing, U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, is expected to announce Thursday whether he’ll challenge Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, in a 2016 Senate primary.
Dear Lord in Heaven forgive me, can I get a bigger hard-on right now? Will all my dreams come true?
“Murphy’s people should be scared because the problem with Alan Grayson is he just doesn’t give a damn,” said Screven Watson, a longtime Democratic consultant based in Tallahassee.
“Grayson doesn’t do things the way normal candidates do them. His campaigns aren’t normal campaigns. He can raise so much money on the Internet that he’s only second to people like President Obama,” Watson said. “There have been liberal candidates who have run statewide before in Florida, but not like Alan Grayson.”
Grayson, who would not comment for this story, rocketed to fame in progressive circles as a House freshman in 2009 for saying in a floor speech that the GOP’s Obamacare alternative was really a slogan: “Don’t Get Sick! And If You Do Get Sick, Die Quickly!” Grayson became a darling of the left, appearing scores of times on MSNBC and becoming a repeat guest on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher,” where the congressman once received a standing ovation from the liberal crowd for explaining the Occupy Wall Street movement.
I better pace myself, because general all-around bastard John Morgan has decided to make this personal:
(Rep Alan) Grayson’s friend, trial lawyer John Morgan, told Local 6 on Wednesday that Grayson told him face-to-face that he is running for Senate. …
“I think it’s political suicide because Alan … in a very safe district, has a great voice with progressives, but that’s totally different — a primary election is totally different than a general election in Florida,” Morgan said (to Rep. Grayson).
Are you going to let that kind of trash talking go, Grayson?
“I think Morgan should lay off the scotch, at least until noon,” (Rep Alan) Grayson said of (John) Morgan’s reaction.
War Were Declared! That’s my boy, Grayson! You tell them, tell them all! You hold nothing back and you take no prisoners! Take crap from no one, even from an ambulance chasing, unethical creep like Morgan!
No one really likes John Morgan anyway. Drive around Orlando/Tampa Bay area and randomly talk to ten people and you will likely hear ten stories of how much of an awful human being John Morgan is right now. You must not live in Orlando/Tampa Bay area if you think highly of John Morgan in any meaningful way. If you are his friend, it is likely you are only his friend for the money. If Morgan throws his support behind Rep. Patrick Murphy, I expect nothing less than Rep. Alan Grayson jumping all over Morgan’s support for marijuana peddling. This Grayson/Morgan fight helps Murphy in no meaningful way. I look forward to this epic clash of Titians!
I think Rep. Alan Grayson, or someone close to Grayson, has heard me talk how Grayson should play up Rep. Patrick Murphy being a Republican in the past. In the raw video of the resent Grayson interview, he brings this up for the first time (as far as I know). To be brutally honest, it is not hard to find out Patrick Murphy used to dry hump Mitt Romney’s leg back in the day and you will have to be willfully ignorant if you do not know this already.
Awesome. If Rep. Patrick Murphy thought he was going to cake-walk to the nomination, he has another thing coming. That other thing is Rep. Alan Grayson and I don’t think Murphy knows what is about to hit him. Murphy is also caught in a rock and a hard place. If Murphy hits hard on Grayson, he risks losing progressive grassroots support. If Murphy ignores or goes easy on Grayson, he risks a pump-up progressives smelling weak blood.
Well, see ya’ later!
