Alan Grayson Is An Awful Person

Just because Alan Grayson looks like some sort of cartoon monster, that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s a good person inside. Sometimes a man’s outer ugliness is just a dim reflection of his ghastly soul.

Remember when Grayson said this, back in 2009?

“If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: DIE QUICKLY.”

Make the rhetoric as simple and as stupid as possible: “The Republicans don’t care about you. They want you to die. Only we can save you.” Etc. Say it as loudly as possible, and wait for the accolades from your fellow travelers to roll in.

And then, when you go back to your other job…

Chuck Ross reports:

Florida Rep. Alan Grayson operates a hedge fund which he has described in investment materials as seeking to capitalize off of “turmoil due to economic, political, or natural disasters,” according to a bombshell report from The New York Times…

Hedge fund marketing materials show that Grayson, who once compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan, touted his status as a U.S. congressman and his position on the House Financial Services Committee to appeal to investors in his fund, which was registered to the Cayman Islands until his activities came under investigation last year by the House Committee on Ethics…

Other marketing material sent out by the fund used the famous quote from the Rothschild family: “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets.”

And so we have Alan Grayson’s hedge fund plan: “WHEN PEOPLE DIE, ACT QUICKLY.”

That’s why Rep. Grayson has the moral authority to make proclamations like this:

That’s right, Alan. Those crazy, conscienceless Republicans.
