The guy who called Alberta-born Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex. Canadas revenge for acid rain is having a sad over something Mark Levin called him recently.
If you need a good laugh, you should sign up for the email fundraising list of Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla. You just cant find a more shrill, hackish, email fundraising operation laden with as many gratuitous ad hominem attacks including last years classic Tea Party = KKK pitch.
And seriously Im signed up for an awful lot of email fundraising lists, and the fact that Graysons stands out this way says quite a bit.
Its not that Grayson is a liberal in fact, liberals like him, who have at times found common cause with Tea Partiers over NSA powers and war in Syria, can often garner a great deal of respect on the Right. But Grayson has repeatedly gone out of his way to make enemies of conservatives. He seems to enjoy it.
And today, he sent an entire fundraising email whining about it, even invoking the 2004 Swift Boat Veterans campaign against presidential nominee John Kerry. Heres the text: [At link]

Great news, its working :)
Unseating the Unhinged is a wonderful thing.
My version of heaven would be to have Mark Levin debate the Obamadork.
Ah, the smell of roasting liberal slime.........
Why the excerpt?

subject: Radio Host Mark Levin Called Me a Circus Clown
I understand that you have to have a thick skin to be in politics. But Im starting to think that I need an elephants hide. Or a flak jacket. Or both.
Recently, Tea Party star Joe the Plumber called me a piece of nose slime. Former Rep. Allen West revealed on national television that he prays for my defeat. Fox News propagandist Bill OReilly called me crazy. Former Gov. Mike Huckabee called my supporters sick puppies. So how long was it going to be, before national radio host Mark Levin chimed in and called me a circus clown?
If vicious personal attacks like calling a Member of Congress a circus clown make you feel ill, then click here, and give us the support we need to fight back.
For what its worth, I like circus clowns. I love the way that dozens of them pop out of those tiny little cars. My kids enjoy the suitcase gags, the juggling, and the magic tricks. But regardless of my affection for circus clowns, I am not one of them. Rather, I am a progressive, and the most effective Member of Congress, according to Slate magazine. Which is precisely why Mark Levin is calling me a circus clown. If I werent so effective, then they would ignore me.
And Mark Levin has an audience a gullible audience, but nevertheless, an audience. Each week, 7.5 million people listen to his radio show. Thats the same number as Glenn Becks.
Lest you think that this is an isolated instance, an anomaly of some kind, here are some other harsh terms that right-wingers have flung at me during the merry month of March alone:
Chief Maggot of All Liberal Lowlifes (Downtrend.com)
loudmouthed maverick liberal (Gawker.com)
pretty big POS (FireAndreaMitchell.com)
bad caveman (AngryWhiteDude.com)
loathsome pest (Downtrend.com again)
Lunatic (Jammie Wearing Fools)
Shrek look-a-like (SatireWorld.com)
I know what you may be thinking: Sticks and stones will break Alans bones, but names will never hurt him. Except they will hurt, because the website Gawker.com has over four million visitors each month. Downtrend.com has had over a million. These right-wing TV shows, radio shows and websites are running a conscious and coordinated smear campaign to prevent my reelection.
Do you remember the Swift Boat attacks against Presidential candidate John Kerry? Through endless repetition of lies and insults, they took someone who was a genuine war hero, and made him seem like a coward. We cant let that happen again, to me or to any other victim of what Hillary Clinton called the vast right-wing conspiracy.
What if you were the target of these vile, depraved and degrading personal attacks? What if it were you?
Im willing to stand up in the face of this brutal character assassination, and continue to fight for the common good. But I cant defeat them all by myself. I need your help, and I need it now. Every dollar counts. Monday marks our FEC report cut-off date. Please contribute today. And the best way to help our campaign is to make monthly contributions.
Ill do my part. But I need you to do yours. Please support our campaign today.
Rep. Alan Grayson
Is Grayson’s wife still beating him?
If not, she should be!!!
I didn’t see that one coming....You owe me a new screen....LOL
Joe the Plumber called him Nose Slime! I’m dying with laughter.
She isn’t doing it right. Maybe we should send her baseball bats.
Grayson is so mad he could beat his wife.
And this is a bad thing? To paraphrase him.
“Republicans want Grayson to die quickly”
Figuratively of course
Since when is Gawker right-wing?
Grayson should go back to beating his wife.
Grayson is proof that Zombies are on the planet, along with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.
Thanks The Old Hoosier.
I feel slighted that Crazy Al didn’t mentioned some of the fragrant emails and voice messages I sent him....
“...If vicious personal attacks like calling a Member of Congress a...”
This line caught my attention. Mr. Grayson is a public servant. His job title does not grant him some sort of superior standing.
Where respect should be derived from is his words and actions. And truly, the comments and antics of Mr. Grayson do not drive respect towards him or his colleagues in Congress.
Mr. Levin is on the right track, judging Mr. Grayson a “Circus Clown” label. But I would bet cash that the promotion to “Circus Freak” is not far behind.
