Alan Grayson was on Lawrence O’Donnell’s MSNBC show last night. Unlike his MSNBC colleagues Keith Olbermann, Ed Schultz, and Rachel Maddow, Mr. O’Donnell has been a voice of reason in the tax-compromise debate. He realizes that the current deal is the best the Dems can get, and it’s about time lefties stop whining about it.
According to NewsBusters:
For the second night in a row, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell exposed a prominent liberal for being totally ignorant about the tax code.
His victim on Wednesday’s “The Last Word” was liberal media darling Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), and this time O’Donnell had some assistance from two very unlikely participants.
This wouldn’t be at all surprising if he was a Republican. But this is a devout liberal that gained prominence with the far-left and MSNBC when he took to the House floor in September 2009 claiming that the Republican healthcare plan was, “Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.”
Since then, he’s been a darling with the Netroots and folks like Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, and Ed Schultz.
Makes one wonder if the bloom has come of this rose because of his defeat in the November elections, or if folks on the left have finally figured out what a buffoon he is.
Either way, it sure was entertaining seeing him torn to shreds by folks on his side of the aisle on the network that does its darnedest to advance a far-left agenda.
