Florida says, ding, dong, the warlock’s dead UPDATE

Any sane person will be delighted to learn that Alan Grayson (D. Fl.) will not be returning to Washington D.C. come January.  Although it’s not “official” yet, Daniel Webster (R.) appears to have won Florida’s 8th Congressional District.

The loud sound you hear in the background is Grayson’s imploding ego.

To paraphrase, for the first time in two years, I am proud to be a citizen of Central Florida.

God speed, Mr. Grayson.


It is now official.  Grayson has lost. 

But, that’s not all…three other House seats held by Democrats are now in Republican hands.  Suzanne Kosmas (D.) from Florida’s Space Coast lost to Republican Sandy Adams;  7 termer Alan Boyd (D.) from Florida’s Panhandle lost to Republican Steve Southerland; and 2 termer Ron Klein (D.) from the Boca Raton area lost to Republican Alan West.

    We've talked about moving to Key West, but thought we couldn't afford it. I'm thinking that, if we are going to have to be a waitress or bartender to make a living it might as well be where it is warm!

    "D-bagger"!!   Now I like that!  Particularly in response to the low class names that lefties give Tea party folks!

    Glad to see his political career DIED QUICKLY. What a P.O.S.

    Someone should send the men in the white coats come pick him up. Some village is missing thier idiot. How did he ever get elected?

    Now that guy was dumber than dirt.  Anytime a lefty claims that we're mean and hateful on the right, all we have to do is trot out that horrible ad that Grayson put out (Taliban Dan Webster).  There is no scarier combination than stupid and evil.  Whatta charmer: he has both!

    I am waiting breathlessly for the goodies they will send CT's way.

  10. Dimsdale on November 4, 2010 at 5:22 am

    Why do you consider seniors to be stupid, and why should Republicans send CT "goodies"?  Rambo, Larson etc. will bring home the bacon!

  11. sammy22 on November 4, 2010 at 6:44 am

    Right you are Dims. Indeed, why should the Republicans send CT any goodies? And I really do not care who was elected in FL (like, they are not representing me. It goes for those who got kicked out and those who got kicked in).

    Do you think all th seniors in FL that voted against him were the ones with signs saying “I don’t want gov run healthcare, I want my medicare”?

  13. chris-os on November 4, 2010 at 8:50 am

    Dims, I love seniors! I loved working with seniors, they have lived their whole lives, so many stories, so much to learn from them…most are smarter than you and I put together.

    I just do not understand the signs (I do not want gov healthcare-I want my medicare) of some of the seniors duped in FL and other states to vote against their own self interests.

    It is frightening to think of them eating dog food when their social security checks are given over to a hedge fund manager who will laugh at them while working 2 hours a day from his yacht.

    Mr. Grayson said that democrat voters did not come to the polls on Tuesday,  I say, Mr. Grayson, perhaps those  same people decided NOT to vote for you….


    Everything has to be about them!  is that DEM??

  15. Dimsdale on November 7, 2010 at 9:08 am

    chris: Have you considered that the signs demonstrate that they can see that Øbamacare is effectively raping the Medicare system of a half billion dollars?


    Shouldn't you be more concerned that these nice people can only afford dog food on the current return from their Social Security checks?  Who the heck puts their retirement funds into hedge funds?


    Consider the story of Galveston, TX that opted out of the SS mess and, using extremely conservative (no pun intended) investments, is now paying out three to four times the monthly amount that comparative recipients of SS are getting?  http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/2005-03-15-b

    Maybe we should love our seniors a little bit more…


    Just wait until the inflation from Bernake's latest move starts to take effect.
