Meet Alan Grayson.
I'm Alan Grayson, and I'm the Democratic candidate for Congress in Florida's district eight. And I'm the attorney of record in every single case now pending in Federal court involving war profiteers in Iraq.
I'm running because I'm fed up with the government mismanagement, the Bush administration's shameless pandering to war profiteers. I think they set out on a deliberate course to make this war good for the people who were their friends. And I want to try to hold them accountable when I'm in Congress. When I'm in Congress... the Bush administration's worst nightmare is going to be me with subpoena power because I know everything that they've done, and I'm going to hold them accountable for it.
We don't need truth and reconciliation, we need punishment. We need people to be held accountable for all the mistakes that they made that have screwed us up in this war and screwed us up in this economy.
All indications are that Obama and those around him don't share Grayson's attitude. If Grayson wins and Obama and other highly placed Democrats try to get him to back off, I hope he tells them to pound sand and carries on because he's right. The Beltway version of "truth and reconciliation" means that law breakers get away with it and live to break the law another day.
