    ... refuse to acknowledge their error, and cost us seats in the House, either, Mr. Grayson.

    I hope if you win you'll be a more honest representative than the one you were when you ran for re-election last time.

    We need our representatives to make us proud. I was ashamed of you that day. Don't make me feel that way again.

    Stop the party of Gut & Spend policies that gut our Earned Benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare and spends on tax breaks for the wealthy elite.

      I can refer you to the lengthy discussion of that ad at "Hullaballoo" and "Down With Tyranny".  And whatever you may think of me, for Darcy's sake, can we please try to stick to the subject, which is Darcy, not me?

      •  I've seen your side already. We need honsety from (0+ / 0-)

        our side as much as we demand from the other. You may have been right about how dangerous your opponent's policies are for America, but you were wrong to edit his words out of context to make the point that could have been made with an honest representation of his positions.

        I'm calling on all our representatives to hue to higher standards and not let us down once they're in office, exactly as you have called out here in this article. And I'm calling on you in particular because you enjoy a much more prominent role in media coverage, so your voice tends to speak for and represent our party as a whole.

        You kicked ass on the floor of the House when you decried the right wing's health care policy as "Die early." And then you let us all down when you tried to get away with the dirty games they're traditionally known for.

        As a citizen who is damn scared of what the right wing is doing to this country, I'm exercising my right to call upon our elected representatives to do better, and in this case, that's here with you, where I have your attention but might not otherwise be able to get it.

        I'm asking you to do better. We deserve no less.

        Thank you.
        Jill

          a fellow Kossack's diary, and you attempted to hijack this diary.

              Besides all that you are (quite lamely) insulting one of our best past and future Representatives, using the bullshit the Right Wing pumps out and gets carried for them by a MSM that wrongly accuses someone like Alan Grayson in order to present the narrative that "both sides do it."

             The best response I can give you is: Are you fucking kidding me?

        allow me to apologize for the idle remark of a schmendrick.
           You must be used to such nonsense, and I know you're tough as nails, but I just hate to see that dribble here.
             You can be assured it's not a representative point of view.

            Most of us at DKos (and all over the intertubz) consider you to be one of the best!
