I hit Alan Grayson the other day for being an asshole. I thought his statement that Republicans want Americans to die quickly was inappropriate rhetoric. Grayson's a jerk. I knew that before I voted for him. However, I posted earlier this morning about the weakness of congressional democrats, and if nothing else, Alan Grayson has proven he's not weak:
I wish Alan Grayson had also apologized for his previous rhetoric, but his statement above took balls. I respect him for that, and apparently, a lot of other people do too. Maybe sometimes it takes an asshole to move the debate?
