How Do You Feel About Alan Grayson Now?

OK, so some of my co-bloggers don't like Alan Grayson. They have their reasons, whether it is because they think he engaged in an abuse of power in trying to shut up a critic or because he has a European attitude towards vacations. I, on the other hand like Alan Grayson because he has a European attitude about vacations and that is allowing me to minimize the importance of the other thing, which, honestly, isn't that big a deal. (See?)

But even though we have our disagreements, if you are going to call just one member in the race for the 8th Congressional District in Florida a drooling mongoloid, why waste it on Alan Grayson?

Dan Fanelli is running for Grayson's seat but before Fanelli can run against Grayson, he's got to make it through a tough Republican primary field, and to do so he's gone with that hoary old tactic: XTREME RACISM.

Even if we can't agree on Grayson, I think we can agree on this drooling mongoloid.

    Any word on where Eric Holder will be doing stump speeches for him?

    Down Syndrome — the condition sometimes referred to as "mongolism" — is an unfortunate medical condition often associated with impaired cognition, and it is the result of genetic errors during cell division in early human development. As such, it is a poor analog for whatever it is that Dan Fanelli has going on, since his assinine behavior is almost certainly a lifestyle choice.

    Let us not forget the "dark skinned" actors in Fanelli's little skit. They had to know what they were doing. Thirty pieces of silver?

    piperTom, maybe those were real terrorists who thought they were participating in a training exercise.

    Me, I feel the same as I did before — not positively — about Grayson. Even flaky demagogues can have worse political opponents, after all. (For similar reasons, my opinion on Pat Buchanan has not improved because, apparently, some of the white power trash apparently think he's a "race traitor.)
