Olympia Snowe Is SO LUCKY That Alan Grayson Did Not Have Time To Go To Kinko’s

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Alan Grayson! Yes! Who even is this guy, and yet, ALAN GRAYSON. Watch Alan Grayson carry on for like four minutes about how much he hates Olympia Snowe and her whole stupid state. He’s like, “Maine? Hardly!” Seriously, he basically says this.

Fuck you, Olympia Snowe:

“I want to remind us all that Olympia Snowe was not elected President last year. Olympia Snowe has no veto power in the Senate. Olympia Snowe represents a state with one half of one percent of America’s population.”

Listen, for serious, all Alan Grayson wants is health care for America. He doesn’t care if this bill gets zero votes in the Senate, he just does not give a shit, so long as this does interfere with his benevolent goal of health care:

“America doesn’t care if it gets 51 votes in the Senate or 60 votes in the Senate or 83 votes in the Senate. In fact, America doesn’t even care about that, it doesn’t care about that at all. […] But America does care about health care. If you’re against it, then get out of the way. Just get out of the way.”

So… Alan Grayson might not understand what “Senate” is, is the point.

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Way Cool Larry

    so shrill and strident!

  • hobospacejunkie

    Grayson/Weiner 2012!

  • Seek

    However, I’ll take Grayson in the betting for the Thunderdome death match with Olympia. I’m pretty sure he can take her, even with her Senate Street Cred.

  • groove

    Haha, what a whiny baby.

  • Way Cool Larry

    David Broder just fainted

  • freakishlystrong

    He dresses gaudy and has fucked up hair-I’d hit that.

  • Way Cool Larry

    mmmm, bacon…

  • Potater

    Jesus fuck, Grayson/Grayson ’12, ’16, ’20, ’24, ‘ever

  • Mr Blifil

    She may represent a small segment of the population (leaving aside the anti-demographic rationale upon which he idea of The Senate is based), but she represents a relatively large segment of Senators With Innies Not Outies.

  • memzilla

    Who else besides me wants to see Alan Grayson go on Faux News and verbally a**-fuck Hannity, Limpbaugh, Malkin, Coultface et al. with his Barbed-Wire Bastinado of Truth?

  • Watchreader

    ::clears throat::
    Actually kinkos hasn’t been around since 2004. They were bought by FedEx.

  • ManchuCandidate

    Are you sure this guy’s a demoncrap?

    Despite it all, dude’s got a point.

  • freakishlystrong

    [re=430633]memzilla[/re]: ‘twould love it, sadly, ’twill never happen.

  • ioksotot23

    Olympia Snowe is now readying her sleigh and boxes and boxes of turkish delight, if that fails she’ll turn him to stone, straight up.

  • Voyou Charmant

    He has good hair and fabulous fashion sense.

  • Terry


    No, Snowe is from tough Yankee stock and routinely survives Maine winters. Grayson survives palmetto bugs and retired senior citizens. I think Snowe has the edge.

  • TGY

    “I want you to go to your windows, throw them open, and yell I’M MAD AS HELL ABOUT THE OPPOSITION TO HEALTH-CARE REFORM AND I’M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!”

  • canadians for pussy

    dont forget he is from florida, americas wang.

  • Thumbcuff

    Common sense. Not the Glenn Beck kind. The other kind. This guy has no hope of a career in US politics, even if he does make me want to move to Ocala, wherever the fk that is,

  • thefrontpage


    Good for him! He’s a new hero! He should keep it up!

    Good for Alan Grayson!

  • Norbert


    [re=430647]ioksotot23[/re]: awesome

  • Sweet Baby Cheeses

    [re=430632]Mr Blifil[/re]: The SWINO Caucus?

  • V572625694

    The Ice Goddess will not be amused by this fellow, who obviously, like Nancy Pelosi, doesn’t know his place. It’s the lower house — a bottom, basically.

  • Seek

    [re=430658]Terry[/re]: Those Seniors can be mean as hell, but I get your point. This could be a pay-per-view opportunity for the ages.

  • Katydid

    [re=430666]canadians for pussy[/re]: Actually, Grayson was born in the Bronx. He learned how to be a bastard when he was a law clerk for Robert Bork and Antonin Scalia. Strange but true.

  • Vending Machine

    [re=430632]Mr Blifil[/re]: I thought Olympia Snowe had a belly with stars; or was she a Sneetch with no star upon hars? I forget which is the good one.

  • hockeymom

    He speaks the truth.
    Americans do NOT care about 51 votes or 60 or 83.
    They care about their health care.
    More Alan Grayson, please…less Reid, Baucus, Conrad and Lincoln.

  • Gob

    Ha, Taibbi had a post about this guy a few weeks ago. He’s maybe my favorite congressman right now.

  • GideonGlib

    As a resident of “Americas Wang” I say forget Kendrick Meeks, lets put Grayson up against Marco Rubio (cuz’ we know it ain’t gonna be Crist after the primaries) for the senate seat being vacated by Martinez.

  • Roger Williams hates your ways

    This guy is the fucking man. Make him the head of all things Democratic please. Head Democratic Ballbuster In Charge. Or something like that.

  • hockeymom

    @Roger Williams: The Ballbuster Czar?

  • Crab1

    Grayson makes a straight man wanna turn gay.

  • Thechansen

    [re=430689]V572625694[/re]: Please he’s a POWER bottom.

  • JSDC007

    Olympia Snowe may be a douche, but right now she is a lovely ouzo-scented douche with notes of pine and salt-air who can make this healthcare thingy happen. We like pleasant scented douches.

    We do not like nasty vinegary douches reeking of Santorum that come out of the acidic orifices of Mitch McConnell, John Kyl, and troll doll Chuck Grassley.

    So there, Mr. Grayson.

  • MLHencken

    Where did this ballsy Democrat come from. Aside from the ill-fitting jacket, he’s got my vote.

  • UnattendedConsequence

    Well, I’ve sorta stood up for Snowe before, but here in Maine she’s getting all demagoggy on the “guv’mint gonna take over health care” bullshit, so she’s on her own. Frankly, it’s past time to stop pussyfootin’ around and start pokin’ people in the eye. And this Grayson dude seems up for it, so good on ya Al! Time to get medieval on their asses!

  • sati demise

    Send this man some money asap. He also showed up on Wolfies show and kicked their asses. I mean stone cold ass kicker.

    love him. love love love him.

  • MzNicky

    Grayson was on some FauxNut screamfest a while back — I coulda swore I saw it here.

    Anyway, I think this is it.

    Neil Cavuto! What a wacky guy.

  • Rascalcat

    Let me first preface this with the fact that I am a life-long, flaming hetrosexual, not that there is anything particularly right with that.



    Why shouldn’t Grayson be allowed to assfuck all these rightwingtards on pay-per-view? It would be one hell of a show and a great way to “fill them ol’ coffers” as Bushtard43 used to say.

  • donner_froh

    Damn. Even though it looks like he grabbed the wrong jacket while on the way to the House floor–looks like it was cut for someone about a foot tall and 80 lbs heavier–he is the best thing that has happened to the democrats since January 20, 2009.

    Big things in store for him but for the rest of this term make him the chief whip for the house dems. Dude would get them in line real quick.

  • ttommyunger

    Actually, he is not from the wangy part of Florida. he’s from Orlando area, which is more up near the ballsy, tainty part of the State. Looks like we have the same tailor, Goodwill…and the hair, the hair! To die for! I would certainly wear that exact “do”; if I still had hair. I want him to be the next “Kick the Rightard Fuckwings in the balls daily” czar.

  • desertwind

    Well… we couldn’t have all the flaming rightwing nutz grabbin’ all the attention, could we?

  • ct03

    Way to reference Idiocracy on the floor.

  • limeminearia

    I missed the Idiocracy reference. What is it?

  • assistant/atlas

    [re=430768]hockeymom[/re]: That’s supposed to be Rahm’s job. But fuck Rahm Emanuel. What the hell has that guy done lately? Alan Grayson for Chief of Ballbusting.

    [re=430941]ttommyunger[/re]: Wait, isn’t this guy also rich as fuck? That begs two questions: why does he wear such shabby clothes and why would he live in Orlando?

  • finallyhappy

    [re=431059]assistant/atlas[/re]: He is very rich but maybe it is good to be folksy where he lives. The only people who I know in Orlando are Mickey and Minnie.

  • Inadequate Blackmail

    America America America. Blah blah blah.

    Where’s Mitt Romney when you need him to tell us what Ronald Reagan would say? That’s the important thing.

  • Carrie_Okie

    Olympia Snowe = Vice President of the United States of Whatevoh

  • sezme

    Alan Grayson represents a state that single-handedly fucked up democracy in the year 2000.

    Anyway, why is America Ferrera more important than Olympia Snowe, just because she has a hit show?

  • Pajama Ram

    Holy Sacagawea! The guy’s doing a great job, considering he was stained by the likes of Bork and Tony Scales. But he’s also got Palinitis:

    Children: Skye, Star, Sage, Storm, Stone

  • Aurelio

    I like him. He says everything three times.

  • sezme

    [re=431139]Pajama Ram[/re]: Those names are in no way as tacky as Trick, Track, Trek, Truck, Trig, Oompa Loompa, and Frodo.

  • AlexisHidell

    [re=431139]Pajama Ram[/re]: With kids named that, I expect he’d be a proponent of pot legalization. Go Grayson!

  • dementor

    [re=431139]Pajama Ram[/re]: And I’ll be glad to bear Stick, Stopsign, Stalagtite, Schooner, Scofflaw and any other spawn he wants so long as he keeps up his Ivy League-level trash talking.

  • DP

    [re=431145]Aurelio[/re]: Yes he does. Yes he does. Yes he does.

  • guerilla-nation

    Why does some douchebag from Florida care about health care? Isn’t Florida where everyone goes to just die? (That’s certainly what Rudy Giuliani did in 2008). Florida is America’s Hospice. No one there needs health care. Now nationalized pre-paid funeral insurance … that’s a different story.

  • soontobeseniorciitzen

    Way to Alan Grayson!! We need more plain talking out spoken representatives in congress.
    My only regret is that I don’t live in your district so I can’t vote for you. Your common sense is like a breath of fresh air in the stuffy halls of the capital building.
