Grayson Tells It Like It Is

Alan Grayson talks about how 45,000 Americans die every year from lack of health insurance. The Republican mindlessly repeats his bullshit about how tort reform and portability will be enough. And Wolf Blitzer just wants to talk about whether or not Grayson's House presentation was insulting.

45,000 people a year. Who the hell cares if it's insulting?

Update: Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who don't understand the issue, and but who can relate to the soap opera of insults and counter-insults. And the mainstream media is only too happy to indulge them, because it's good for ratings, and because they have a vested interest in the status quo. And if everyone is busy arguing over who insulted whom, the one thing that is not going to change is the status quo.

Ladies and Gentleman, 21st century journalism!
