Grayson Says Something Offensive...For Real This Time

Democrats had a good lighthearted chuckle when Republicans started calling for Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) to apologize after he suggested that the GOP health care plan was for Americans "to die quickly." Things got a little weirder when he launched a website called Names of the Dead to list Americans who've died because they don't have health insurance--a noble goal in progressive eyes...but sounds like a zombie movie. Now, he's really done it: in a month-old radio interview that's now making the rounds, he calls Linda Robertson, an advisor to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, a "K Street whore." This one will probably stick.
