Holy crap. Politics that aren't the usual GOP nonsense coming out of Florida.

Nice apology. "We should care about people even after they're born" indeed.

That's my Representative! I've been very happy with Grayson since he was elected. Especially as the Republican he beat out was sleazy. I'm more than happy that he's so vociferously supporting the Dem health plan and not backing down or offering an apology because the GOP got their feathers ruffled.

I have not fallen in love with anyone so quickly or thoroughly since I first saw one of Keith Olbermann's special comments.

Inspiring, isn't he? That's how to take on the liars of the ill-named Right!

I love this guy! He keeps coming back and coming back, and getting right in the face of the Republicans.
