Why did Alan Grayson call a reporter a “shitting robot” yesterday? Because that reporter learned the liberal populist hero Florida congressman, worth somewhere south of $100 million, keeps as much as a quarter of his wealth in “hedge funds in the Cayman Islands” where foreign investors can dodge U.S. taxes.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), one of the wealthiest anti-corporate corporatists in Congress, may possibly run for Marco Rubio’s open Senate seat. Nothing’s certain! Except that Alan Grayson, one of the most obnoxious members of an obnoxious Congress, will make an ass of himself. Just look what he did today.
When it comes to confronting its own historically low approval ratings, Congress is less of head-on type than a head-up-its-own-ass type.
