Yes We Can, But We Shouldn't: Grayson Spits on Obama's Goal of Unity

President Obama sloganized his campaign with 'Yes We Can." Some argue he was saying, "Yes, we can elect a black man into the White House." Others think he was saying, "Yes we can work as one country without partisan backstabbing," as was the case while President Bush held the office.

Not newbie Rep. Alan Grayson. He thinks Republicans are out to see peeople die.

According to the Associated Press, "If you get sick, America, the Republican health care plan is this: die quickly," he said. "That's right. The Republicans want you to die quickly if you get sick."

Mr. Grayson wants to rephrase Obama's slogan to, "Yeah, I think we could, but given my inexperience in Washington and general hatred of Republicans, no we shouldn't."

Am I exagerating? Of course I am.

Still, Mr. Grayson won't apologize. Not famous for liberal tolerance, he is what continues to divide America. Joe Wilson is no charmer, but at least he apologized.

For those following Sarah Palin (a Democrat and Republica hobby alike, apparently): her book is ready.
