Republicans: “Callous bigoted tools…for sale to the highest bidder.”

Alan Grayson (D—Florida) nails the GOP again.  In 2009 he said Republicans want sick people to hurry up and die and get out of the way.

In a fundraising video that was just uploaded today, he described Republicans as “callous bigoted tools.”  He said:

“They have no interest whatsoever in anything but personal advancement, and the means by which they advance are to sell-out, to carve the law up into little pieces and put it up for sale to the highest bidder.  That’s the reality of the situation.”

He said there are a few principled Republicans.  He named Ron Paul as an example.  In his speech, he lashed out at Congress in general; not just Republicans:

“I feel disgust towards many of these people.  Frankly, not only the Republicans. There are so many people who show no responsibility at all to the 700,000 people who elected them, sent them to Congress and are looking for them to do something useful for them in their lives.”

That pretty well sums them up.  And yet most of these useless shitbags will get re-elected because of their safe gerrymandered districts.

This is nothing new from these people. Now that they are in power it's just bringing the crazy more into the open. The good thing is, even with gerrymandering, people are waking up and they are not having it.

Jess: I hope you're right about voters waking up. Some of these gerrymandered Republicans have zero popularity or respect from the public, yet they keep getting re-elected. This needs to change.

Well this last election the dems got a million votes more than the GoOpers did. If we can get them out to vote in midterms we will see big changes.

Jess: I sure hope there's a way to translate the Dems' higher popularity into a Democratic majority in the House.
