Alan Grayson: Tea Party ‘Largest Suicide Pact in History,’ ‘No More Popular Than the Klan’

Democratic congressman Alan Grayson is a very colorful man, and in keeping with that reputation, during an appearance on Al Sharpton‘s MSNBC show Thursday, he said the tea party is just about as popular as the KKK and compared John Boehner to Dr. Jekyll, among other things.

Grayson joined Sharpton in bashing the tea party, saying Americans want them out of their lives and “at this point, the tea party’s no more popular than the Klan.”

This is not the first time Grayson had made this comparison, saying in 2010 that the attendees of Glenn Beck‘s big rally were “wearing sheets over their heads 25 years ago.”

Grayson predicted that the GOP is a dying party, “on its way out” like the Whigs were. He told Sharpton they “want to bring about the end of days” and cause utter “destruction” like “the largest suicide pact in history.” Grayson said it’s time to vote out tea partiers they’re not doing anything useful for the benefit of the country.

But it’s not just the tea partiers who need to go in Grayson’s mind, John Boehner needs to join them. He called the House Speaker a “short-order cook for the far-right wing,” and saying that the “useless” Boehner used to be Dr. Jekyll and now he’s morphed into Mr. Hyde.
