    You could see this coming a mile away.

    When liberals can't win on the merits they start rumors that likely are not true. They are despicable.

    Grayson blames shutdown on GOP literally drinking on the job

    "Many of them seem loaded," the liberal congressman says, charging his GOP colleagues smelled like alcohol

    BY JOSH EIDELSON

    In a Tuesday interview, Rep. Alan Grayson charged that Republican House members have been literally intoxicated while casting votes on the continuing resolutions that set the stage for today’s government shutdown. Noting “a number of public reports that you can smell alcohol on their breath as they’re voting gleefully to shut down the government and create chaos,” Grayson said that he had personally witnessed GOP colleagues smelling like alcohol. “Many of them seem loaded,” said Grayson. The Florida congressman declined to name names, saying, “it’s the usual suspects,” but that he didn’t “really feel like getting that personal with people.”

    A spokesperson for Speaker John Boehner did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Politico reporter Ginger Gibson tweeted Saturday that she could “smell the booze wafting from members as they walk off the floor.”

    Grayson said he thinks on-the-job alcohol consumption by GOP House members has “been a problem all year long.”

    “It’s a fact we all have to live with,” Grayson told Salon, “and it’s making them violent and abusive towards America.”

    Grayson also blamed today’s shutdown on Republicans’ “anarchist ideology” and “blind hatred of government,” saying they’ve become “the Captain Ahabs of 21st century American politics. Grayson had particularly harsh words for Speaker Boehner, who he said refused to allow a vote on a “clean CR” to avert a shutdown because “he enjoys his golf games with the president, and he doesn’t want to lose that perk, and so he’s desperate to maintain his relevance, and that means maintaining his position at all costs – even the kind of costs we’re seeing now for the country.” Grayson predicted that the shutdown, given its impact on veterans benefit applications, National Institutes of Health research, and Federal Drug Administration drug approvals, would lead “over time” to deaths.

    More projection. Remember how often Teddy Kennedy voted while he was three sheets to the wind?

    At least that episode is over, he can only vote in elections now.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Gawd knows that can't happen soon enough! I can't believe those fools elected him again! Damn!
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
