Liberal Dem Rep. Alan Grayson Compares Republicans To “Dog Poop” On House Floor…

Then again, nobody has ever accused Grayson of being a class act.

House Republicans silence Rep. Grayson after he cites poll comparing them to ‘dog poop’ — Raw Story

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D-CA) found himself on Tuesday being added to the list of things that had been shut down because of Republicans in Congress.

    During a speech on the House floor to call for a vote on a resolution that said Congress’ “dignity” had been impugned by the government shutdown, Grayson frustrated Speaker pro tempore Steve Womack (R-AR) by obstructing all other business and asserting privilege under Rule IX.

    Grayson observed that media outlets all over the world and polling data within in the United States showed that “the dignity of the House has been called into question.” [...]

    “What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or witches? Congress, 32 percent; witches, 46 percent,” he said. “What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or hemorrhoids? Congress, 31 percent; hemorrhoids, 53 percent. What do you have a higher opinion of, Congress or dog poop? Congress 40 percent; dog poop 47 percent.”

    At that point, Womack cautioned Grayson to confine his remarks to an explanation of why his resolution was privileged under Rule IX. But the congressman continued citing the poll, comparing Congress to toenail fungus, cockroaches and zombies.

Well... that didn't take long. So much for the kinder, gentler Alan Grayson.

He should be censured.
