I'm Loving Rep. Alan Grayson

We'll definitely be getting into this on the show and taking your calls. Representative Alan Grayson not only didn't back down on his comments that Republicans' health care plan is "die quickly," but he walked into the den of vipers on CNN and kept control of the issue: that Americans need real health care reform. It was an amazing thing to see -- a Democrat fighting fire with fire and seizing the day. (He also mentions getting many calls from people proud of his comments on the floor of the house, including from a man who is the longest-living AIDS survivor.)

Of course, the Republicans are calling for an apology, trying compare this to Rep. Joe Wilson, but it's apples and oranges. Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this.
