Dem Congressman Does Ed Schultz Impersonation on House Floor

Last week we noted the deranged MSNBC hack Ed Schultz declaring that Republicans want you to die, just because they oppose the government taking over the healthcare industry.

Who knew a Democrat Congressman would pick it up from there and do a Schultz impersonation on the House floor?

Well, sure enough, Florida's Alan Grayson, the man who was too afraid to even face his constituents in August, has sunk to an all-time low.
Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., warned Americans that "Republicans want you to die quickly" during an after-hours House floor speech Tuesday night.

His remarks, which drew angry and immediate calls for an apology from Republicans, were highlighted by a sign reading "The Republican Health Care Plan: Die Quickly."

Veteran Tennessee Republican Jimmy Duncan abandoned customary reticence to chastise Grayson.

"That is about the most mean-spirited partisan statement that I've ever heard made on this floor, and I, for one, don't appreciate it," Duncan said.
You can see a moron like Schultz pulling this kind of shtick. After all he has no ratings and will do anything for attention. But to see an actual Congressman sink to this level is beyond appalling. Instead of being chastised by House Democrats he'll probably be elevated to a leadership position.
"If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: Die quickly," he said.
I suspect his political career will die quickly after this.
