Good idea: let's give these Chavez-wannabe tyrants even more power!
Firebrand congressman Alan Grayson is so angry about a parody website that he wants the attorney general to prosecute its creator and imprison her for 5 years. Grayson sent a four-page complaint to Eric Holder, accusing the woman behind MyCongressmanIsNuts.com of lying to federal election officials, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Among other things, the title of the site misrepresents her as one of his constituents, he says.
Here’s part of the actual complaint (read the entire letter to Eric Holder here) in which Grayson attempts to discredit the very title of the website:
The website operator shouldn’t be able to call it “My Congressman is Nuts” because Grayson’s not her Representative? It can be assumed that some of the people who send money are constituents of Grayson, and therefore the name of the website makes sense...
So, we’ve actually got a US Congressman writing to the Attorney General of the United States arguing the case for why he is not nuts, which is as much proof as anyone needs that Alan Grayson is indeed a certifiable kookburger.
Considering Grayson’s penchant for sophomoric name-calling of all the doodie-heads he hates, here’s another guffaw-inducer from Grayson’s letter to Holder:
Tasteless and juvenile? Yeah, let’s keep the rhetoric mature and stick to the issues — like saying that Linda Robertson is a K Street whore, comparing the GOP health plan to 9/11 and the Holocaust, calling Dick Cheney a vampire and telling him to STFU!
And this is the guy who’s bitching about being slandered? I’m LOLing at your STFU, Congressman... And of course no letter from a pro free speech congressman to the Attorney General would be complete without urging the AG to not only throw one of his critics in jail, but to also be so good as to recommend a prison sentence...
In order to rally support for Ms. Langley, I'm taking suggestions for new Grayson insults in the hope that he'll try to have me thrown in the clink too. My ideas thus far:
• "Grayson doesn't know the meaning of the word 'fear' - but then again he doesn't know the meaning of most words."
• "As a congressman, Grayson does the work of three men: Larry, Curly and Moe."
• "Grayson's had his H1N1 shot, but there is no vaccine against stupidity."
• "His constituents would like to thank Grayson from their hearts of their bottoms."
