Alan Grayson: No Rs or Ds in D.C., only 'meanies and weenies'

You know what Washington’s like. Why do you want to go back? I’d be down on the floor every day calling them out for the crazy stuff they do that nobody ever finds out about because they’re not witnesses to it.

What do you make of the so-called supercommittee’s failure to do its job? I’m not sure that they should do their job. I don’t like their job. Their job is to cut Social Security and Medicare and Medicaid. I’m sorry, it’s just a farce. The real two-party system in America is the Meanies and the Weenies. The Meanies want to take away your benefits, and the Weenies want to compromise with them.
