‘Die Quickly’ Congressman Needs to Dial It Back


Florida congressman Alan Grayson received a lot of attention, good and bad, when he said on the House floor that Republicans want Americans to “die quickly.” A few weeks later, he told Chris Matthews that Dick Cheney has blood dripping from his teeth and is angry that Barack Obama hasn’t shot any old men in the face yet. And now he’s catching some flak for calling a female aide to Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke a “K Street whore.” Okay, Grayson, we get it, you’re Congress’s coolest bad-boy liberal. That’ll do.
