Former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) beat Republican opponent Todd Long and will return to the House for his second, non-consecutive term, the Associated Press reported.

How the crap did he win after losing last time? Was it a new district they created JUST for him?

Yeah, they have a few in Texas for the democrats, too. I am sure voter-homes helped.

They did a bunch of redistricting post-census. Since nobody watches the watchers, the demographic/population shift was not confirmed to be consisting of those not here legally. Of course, we have the leftists screaming about “voter rolls” and filing lawsuit warfare whenever someone tries to get rid of the ineligible folk (the evil “voter purge” of those who aren’t and should not be voters).

I’m beginning to understand why Obozo won Florida. The state has apparently been infected by a virus that makes people go stupid.

At least he’s in the minority party this time. I think Dems gained another seat or 2 in FL, and several others around the country. Not sure if this was offset by GOP gains but overall it still is discouraging.

Is "fiery" some kind of Newspeak for "insane?"

Yes, in the same context as one Louis Wolcott, if you like.

Parasites and fools voting.One thing the 2012 election did was affirm the 2008 discovery that there were more parasites than producers and there were more people who prefer to be slaves than to live free. The 2010 election caught them asleep. They woke up for 2012.

This is even after this:

Former Rep. Alan Grayson runs red light, injures two in car crash on his way to fundraiser

I guess people in FL have short memories.

‘....a virus that makes people go stupid.’

that virus is an epidemic and spans the country. And, sadly, for the healthy people, I wonder if there will ever be a cure. The infection is too deep.
