Giving It to Them Good

Below is a video showing Florida Republican Dan Webster in the process of ousting the progressive Democrat, Alan Grayson, from his seat in Congress. The date was October 5, 2010; the event was sponsored by the West Orlando Tea Party.

You just heard the candidate saying, “The first thing we need is to actually take up a budget and talk about it.” Well, the new Republican majority in the House, after a brief pause to push a few hot button social issues, has finally delivered itself of that budget.

And below is a screen grab from the raw video of the freshman congressman indeed talking about it at the Orlando Town Hall yesterday. Just from the Schadenfreude aspect it’s worth watching the whole thing. But I can’t shake the suspicion that many — maybe most — of these red-faced hecklers were the exact same people who were shouting down Alan Grayson during the Tea Party’s summer of rage.

Democracy, saith the wise man, is that system of government whereby you give the people what they want, and give it to ’em good.

Ain't the intertoobs fun?

On point, however -- let's hope the people who voted in these rubber-stampers for Ryan's "budget" realize their mistake and correct it at the next opportunity. I'm not holding my breath, however.

I always figured you should be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it. :)
