by Robert Wenzel:
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla) is considering running for Senate next year. I hope he does.
Mother Jones reports that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has already settled on a candidate, Rep. Patrick Murphy, but Grayson believes that “our voters will crawl over hot coals to vote for me.”
He is quite the crazed lefty, but he sure does know how to grill the Fed:
and he is great on the absurdity of ISIS as a threat to the US:
Both very important positions that challenge the establishment.
That said, he is still a politician (and a lefty at that), but if we must have crazed lefty politicians, I prefer those who will surprise and aggressively challenge the establishment at times, and it is a bonus if they are entertaining while doing it. Grayson is entertaining:
Alan Grayson just called a reporter a “shitting robot” http://t.co/DZJv3VryWs pic.twitter.com/eEbm3uIQsz

NOTE: Murphy has supported more foreign interventions and war while also taking donations from Big Banks and bailing them out.
