I Ain't Sorry

A thing of political beauty.

Here's the flow.

Rep. Alan Grayson, FL (D) discovers magic orbs very unfamiliar to Democrats in general. After some research he discovered that these orbs are called 'balls'.

Instead of cowering in fear as most Democrats would when confronted with 'balls', Rep. Grayson, by the power of Greystone, decides to utilize the potent energy held within the magic orbs.

He takes to the floor:

Wowza, right!

Of course the Republicans get the vapors because a Dem was a big old meanie to them and called them out in public.

Republican selective memory kicks in of course. They would never, ever use the type of rhetoric that Grayson did. Why, Virginia, it is so beyond the pale. How could anyone....

Despite Outrage, Many House Republicans Have Said Dem Health Care Will Kill People:

Congressional Republicans are expressing outrage over freshman Rep. Alan Grayson's suggestion on the House floor Tuesday night that the GOP health care plan amounts to little more than "don't get sick" -- and if you do, "die quickly."

"Take Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite (R-Fla.), who said in July: 'Last week, Democrats released a health care bill which essentially said to America's seniors: drop dead.'

Or Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.), a doctor, who reviewed the public health insurance option in July and diagnosed that it is 'gonna kill people.'

Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.), not one to pull punches, suggested on the House floor that Congress 'make sure we bring down the cost of health care for all Americans and that ensures affordable access for all Americans and is pro-life because it will not put seniors in a position of being put to death by their government.'

July was a busy time for House floor death sentences. Also that month, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), noted: 'One in five people have to die because they went to socialized medicine...I would hate to think that among five women, one of 'em is gonna die because we go to socialized care.'

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) had a similar assessment. 'They're going to save money by rationing care, getting you in a long line. Places like Canada, United Kingdom, and Europe. People die when they're in line,' he said on the House floor in July."
Remember: It is OK if you're a Republican (IOKIYAR)

Repugs dip into their tried and true vapor bag and demand... nay, require an apology. Hell, it's worked so well in the past. A Dems will cave, right?

So, Grayson takes the floor again. And he apologizes.....

Kapowya! Didn't see that one coming.

The balls, they're alive! Alive with spine stiffening ballsy goodness.

But Grayson ain't through yet.

Watch him on The View.... uh, I mean CNN's Situation Room (Wolf and Co. are the most pathetic bunch of... I don't even now what they are. It ain't journalism they are practicing. Did Perez Hilton produce this segment?)

Awsum. I <3 Grayson.

You should too. Send him a few bucks for his most excellent work:

What do we have here. Possible snow'balls' effect?

White House lashes out at Glenn Beck, Fox News ‘lies’:

"In another sign that the Obama administration is increasingly willing to take on its media critics directly, the White House blog has published a comparison of Fox News 'rhetoric' versus 'reality' on the issue of President Obama's support for Chicago's Olympic bid.

The statement went so far as to use the expression 'Fox lies.'

'Last night Fox News continued its disregard for the facts in an attempt to smear the Administration's efforts to win the Olympics for the United States,' the White House blog entry begins. 'In the past, hosting the Olympics has been a source of pride and unity for the country, but once again Fox News' Glenn Beck program has shown that nothing is worthy of respect if it can be used as part of a partisan attack to boost ratings.'"

Newsmax. Sponsored by the RNC. Calling for a military coup to over through Obama.


Newsmax removes column that called for military coup to resolve the ‘Obama problem.’

Digby nails it.

"Yes. Nine months in, it's obvious that the only choice Real Americans have is to stage a coup. The lessons they've learned from recent presidencies is that impeachment is no sure thing and that unless you can get close enough to steal elections, you might get stuck with someone you didn't vote for. So they're dreaming of more tried and true methods. That whole democracy thing is very inconvenient."

El Incompetence.

RNC Hispanic Heritage month press release messes up Spanish — over and over again | Raw Story:
"“Though the press release emphasizes the Republican Party’s ‘commitment to the Hispanic community,’ apparently that commitment does not include hiring a qualified Spanish translator,” the site’s Andrea Nill remarked. “The Spanish translation of [Republican National Committee Chairman Michael] Steele’s statement is riddled with embarrassing typos and errors. Even Yahoo’s automatic online translator, Babel Fish, produces better results. A quick revision highlights the multitude of glaring errors.”

That revision appears below."

Just seems appropriate to end with the following. This is a must read. So awesome.
