Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) became a media sensation and the darling of some of the more boisterous members of the Democratic Party when he came out with his version of the Republican healthcare plan: “Die Quickly!” I had a feeling that he was a little too much of a good thing and that his sudden fame would go to his head and exacerbate his tendency to shoot off his mouth. Well, I was right. Last week in a radio interview he referred to lobbyist Linda Robertson, who used to advise Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, as a “K Street whore.” As Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) noted, “Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?”
His fifteen minutes are just about up.
Update: Rep. Grayson has apologized to Ms. Robertson.
