The jokes keep flying from the camp of U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, with this little campaign e-mail sent out under the headline "Thank you, Republican Hypocrites."
Congressman Grayson's re-election campaign wishes to thank all of the Republican hypocrites who attacked Grayson for summarizing the Republican's health care plan as follows: "Don't get sick. And if you do get sick, die quickly." As soon as the Republican hissy fits began, contributions began to pour in to Grayson's campaign. Thousands of new contributors joined Alan's Army overnight.Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) demanded an apology. The Grayson re-election campaign would like to usher in a new era of bipartisanship by inviting Rep. Price to serve as the campaign's Finance Director. The campaign would also like to invite the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Pete Sessions (R-TX), to serve as Chairman of the Campaign's Fundraising Committee.Keep up the good work, gentlemen! The Grayson campaign thanks you for your support.
On the Ed Schultz show yesterday, when told of some of the character assassination statements about him coming out of Republican headquarters, and asked for his response, Alan Grayson had this to say:
My response is WHATEVER. America is sick of you, Republican Party. You are a LIE FACTORY - that's all you ever do. Why don't you work together with the Democrats to solve America's problems instead of making stuff up?
