Politico, noting the bipartisan fallout over Alan Grayson calling female Fed advisor Lisa Robertson a “whore,” finds even liberal blue-state Democrats scornful of the loose-cannon Florida Dem:
“Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?” asked Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)
House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer defended Robertson, whom he said he knows.
“I think it’s inappropriate and unfair,” the Maryland Democrat said. He decried the “heated rhetoric” that he said interferes with the ability solve problems.
Democrat Dina Titus of Nevada called Grayson’s remarks “a bit extreme and rather sexist.”Indeed. Read the whole thing, which also addresses Grayson’s improper promotion of a website on the House floor that had links to his campaign fundraising site. Floridians must be so proud of a Democrat who embarrasses even Democrats from New York City and Maryland.
