Excuse us as we once again divert attention to hot liberal mess Alan Grayson, Orlando-area Democratic congressman. The man who's mouth cannot stop flapping is in hot water again, after calling Linda Robertson, and advisor to Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernake, a "K Street whore" on a radio show a month ago.

Robertson, who had previously worked as an advisor to the Clinton administration, upset Grayson by, in his view, blocking congressional attempts to increase oversight and bending to lobbyists.

"Here I am the only member of Congress who actually worked as an economist, and this lobbyist, this K Street whore, is trying to teach me about economics," he said.

Enter Jim Greer, who also loves to make outrageous statements. The Chariman of the Republican Party of Florida, a group that believes women shouldn't have the right to make decisions about the use of their own reproductive organs and opposed the Lilly Ledbetter Fairpay Act, labeled Grayson's remarks "sexist."


Riptide would just like to point out that the left are equal-opportunity users of the word whore. Just ask Tom DeLay (reality TV whore), any one of Fox News' mostly male bloviators (ratings whores), or that guy who got paid to have methed-up sex with Ted Haggard (plain old whore.)
