From USA Today:
Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida sent a fundraising pitch equating the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan, which includes an image of a burning cross for the letter "T."
... "Ask yourself this: Who else in American public life today is as honest and as blunt as this? Congressman Alan Grayson deserves your support, like no one else," reads the end of Grayson's message. "He, and only he, is saying the things that you are thinking, and so much need to be said."
The National Republican Congressional Committee is highlighting Grayson's fundraising e-mail and Klan comment. Matt Gorman, a spokesman for the House GOP campaign committee, said Grayson is using "hateful words and imagery" that should be condemned by House Democrats.The problem is that the GOP is obsessed with being liked by liberals. Grayson is probably from a long string of Democrats. The KKK were Democrats. Surely there is someone in Grayson's family (perhaps Grayson himself) that belonged to the KKK. If nothing else, the KKK-Democrat party link needs to be stressed.
