With under two weeks to go, Alan Grayson, one of the most repugnant members of Congress (and that’s saying something), is now on his own:
The Democratic Congressional Committee is spending millions of dollars in key districts around the country on late independent expenditures, demonstrating the districts Democrats believe can be saved from a national wave — and the members the party believes are already too far behind their Republican rivals to save.
Where the DCCC didn’t spend money is as indicative as where it did. With two weeks to go, Democrats are using their checkbooks as acknowledgement that nearly a dozen members are beyond saving.
The DCCC did not spend money on behalf of Reps. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio), Debbie Halvorson (D-Ill.), Betsy Markey (D-Colo.), Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), Suzanne Kosmas (D-Fla.), Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.) and Steve Kagen (D-Wis.), the filings show. Republicans believe those seven seats are all but guaranteed to fall their way.
How desperate is Grayson’s campaign? They’re touting an endorsement from former Rep. Pat Schroeder, a fellow far left-wing nut case. Yeah, this’ll do the trick:
This is like trying to prove to the court that you’re not crazy by having Gary Busey vouch for your sanity.
They just can’t stop with the “13th century voting record when it comes to women’s issues” thing, can they? That “Taliban Dan” ad has been thoroughly discredited, but it’s still all they’ve got.
Grayson’s inability to grasp reality has caused this epic shift:
Nate Silver has begun working with the New York Times this year. Silver has run FiveThirtyEight.com (538 is the total number of electoral votes in a Presidential election), and uses heavy statistical analysis to come up with his forecasts.
According to Silver, incumbent Democrat Alan Grayson has gone from an almost 59 percent chance of winning to less than 40 percent in one week!
I’m not going to pop the cork on the Champagne just yet, but watching Grayson get flushed down the Beltway toilet would make election night worth staying up for.
