-1 for the fact that it really isn't an act of attainder, but five for some badass committee theatrics. How can you time something like that?
Oh, balls, you're right. I jumped the gun. Turns out Americans do attainder totally differently. In Canada as long as the penalty or legal instrument isn't criminal in substance, there's no prospectivity requirement in passing targeted civil laws --- you can attack certain firms or industries as much as you want. We do it to the tobacco companies with some frequency. (BC v. Imperial Tobacco)
Here's your star back with apologies.

I love Alan Grayson. Why don't you clone him to fill up your entire government? Except of course for a minority of Republicans for him to attack.

I love the quip about the the Senator's name.

I miss Cena_Mark.
He'd probably say something like how if Obama doesn't follow the Constitution, then why should some procedure that curtails his cronies?
Then baleen would come in and shout him down with very terse words and phrases, then Cena would call him "gayleen" (which automatically wins the argument). And political video clips will thrive another day on poeTV.

I think the energy crisis would be solved if we could only find a way to power this nation on Alan Grayson's seething contempt

I'm just happy to see a Democrat who can make everyone around him stutter and fluster and not the other way around.

Paul Broun is the congressman from my district. Ive met him a number of times. hes at least as big of a douche in person as he is on tv. Even the conservative paper here in town hates his ass. Grayson and Franklin in 2016.

Alan Grayson IS...

You dorks realize Grayson voted "present" on that amendment and it passed overwhelmingly right?
And also that he voted to de-fund ACORN on the House floor?
I know you'd have us believe this guy just votes against his beliefs for no earthly reason, but I did some research:
Congressman Alan Grayson: I think that the Republicans' intent was to defund ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). But in the process, they defunded crooks all through the military industrial complex and I look forward to their inadvertent efforts in the future to bring about world peace and end hunger.
Kathleen Wells: This bill was introduced and passed after an ACORN employee(s) in Baltimore were/was caught with a hidden camera making incriminating statements to a man and a woman posing as a pimp and a prostitute. Although ACORN has a 30-year history of helping low-income people, many Democrats voted in favor of the Defund ACORN bill. Do you think those Democrats who supported the bill are being short sighted?
Congressman Grayson: I think your question doesn't properly characterize the reason why I voted for the bill. I voted for the bill because it defunds crooks. You have to ask other people why they voted for the bill -- I can't speak for them. I voted because I saw the possibility that we could actually shut off the flow of cash to contractors who have cheated the taxpayers and hurt the troops.
