I admit I've been mildly pissed off ever since Dick Clark and John Culver were dismissed from public service back in the 80's. Grassley's odious "tax and spend liberal" mantra was simple but unfortunately too effective.
When Grassley decided to parrot Palin's Death Panels lie during the '10 cycle, I lost what little respect I might've had for this grim soul. His latest henchman role in the "screw obama's SCOTUS picks" drama earns him 5 rotten tomatoes.
I have no problem with 'true conservatives' but guys like him, McConnell and others who essentially dissemble and make up stuff to suit the political moment make me ill. Apparently, Harry Reid (no Mr. firebrand) had enough and called him out today. Between Grassley, King and (unelected but embedded) Vanderplaats, I'm really starting to wonder about political sanity. Just don't follow the advice of failed gubernatorial candidate Jack Hatch and simmer down. It's past time to wake up and fire up!
