I think I'm in love

Freshman Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida has an interview in Vanity Fair and whispers the sweet nothings that I like to hear.
Bear in mind, this is an enemy with no army, no air force, no navy. We didn’t have to put in this kind of effort when we were facing the Soviet Union, with over 10,000 nuclear weapons. Why do we have to put in this effort, and bear this expense, and move these many lives against an enemy with no forces that it can put in the field? The C.I.A. has said that the total number of foreign fighters in Iraq—not the people whom we provoked to fight against us—the total number of foreign fighters in Iraq is 800. So now, for six years, we have had 150,000 American soldiers chasing 800 people—they haven’t found them. So what is the chance that another six years is going to solve that problem, or for that matter another 60 years? It’s fundamentally not working, and we can’t afford it anymore. So for our own sake we have to end it.
Read it all and see if you're not swooning too. [via]

That sounds an awful lot like logic. Such thinking has no place in the halls of Congress!

I wonder if this man is related to another Alan Grayson I once knew in my home town of Princeton NJ. If so, there is a striking family resemblance.
