The first rather obvious question that pops into my head upon reading this particular missive from Eric Kleefeld, is about there being any doubtwhatever that Alan Grayson is Florida’s answer to Cynthia McKinney. Look, I’m sorry, but in my view,Grayson has turned himself into an embarrassment that is among the few on the planet that could actually give McKinney a run for the money.

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) has set up a new Web site, Names of the Dead, to memorialize Americans who died because they had no health insurance:

Every year, more than 44,000 Americans die simply because have no health insurance.

I have created this project in their memory. I hope that honoring them will help us end this senseless loss of American lives. If you have lost a loved one, please share the story of that loved one with us. Help us ensure that their legacy is a more just America, where every life that can be saved will be saved.

It’s bad enough that a U.S. congressman figures that because government isn’t spending piles of your money and mine on somene’s healthcare, that their deaths are on OUR hands. The total absence of logic involved with that idea should be enough to disqualify him from the office that he holds that the moment.  Clearly however, that wont disqualify him from attaining higher office in the near future, and that just as clearly is what the man has in mind with all the smoke signals he’s been sending from central Florida lately.  But watch this:

Grayson may be leaving himself open to some online practical jokers. At the moment I write this, four names are memorialized in the site’s rotating list:

Lassie Martin, 10, Kanab, UT

Norma Jeane Mortenson, 36, Los Angeles, CA

Steve Rogers, 90, New York, NY

Wile E. Coyote, 55, Sedona, Arizona

All four of those names are fraudulent

I’ll bet their being fake names didn’t stop them from voting to elect Grayson, huh?
