Alan Grayson Will Make Every Democrat in Congress Better

Legendary populist Jim Hightower was in Orlando this week, helping the Grayson for Congress campaign. Jim is the "anti-Limbaugh" on national radio, and the author of the brilliant books “There’s Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos,” “Swim Against the Current: Even a Dead Fish Can Go With the Flow,” and “Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy.” Jim recorded this special video message for you:

Hi, Jim Hightower here, in support of my friend and a great fighting populist, Alan Grayson.

An old time humorist once said that, “Every now and then, an innocent man gets sent to the legislature.” Well, Alan Grayson is innocent of the corporate money and the caving in to corporate interests that so many practice in Washington.

But he is not innocent in terms of knowing how to get things done, for ordinary people. In fact, he drives those right-wingers and the corporate lobbyists crazy. Of course, that’s a pretty short ride for most of them.

There’s a motel here in my town of Austin, Texas. It has a great iconic marquee in front of it. It says, “No additives, no preservatives, corporate-free since 1938.” That is Alan Grayson; that is our guy; corporate free. He is a leader who actually leads. Imagine that. And he will make every Democrat in Congress better just by his presence there, and by his fighting spirit. So that will add up to making America a better place to be. That’s why I am backing Alan Grayson.

Fighting for what’s right,

Jim Hightower

3. Can you imagine Grayson's next couple of political steps?

Governor, Senator, VP? The guy is like Bill Clinton on steroids.
