Maybe Alan Grayson was having a bad day. Maybe had a bit of acid reflux. Or maybe he just didn’t feel like being a dancing liberal monkey on a string for Eric Bolling, the host of Fox Business Channel’s “Follow the Money”. Whatever the cause, the former Congressman didn’t live up to his reputation as a fiery showman in his interview with Bolling from Friday at all.

Mediaite’s Frances Martel sees a “smugness” in Grayson’s behavior. Others might see Grayson as refusing to swing at pitches as high and wide as the ones that Bolling is throwing, calling Social Security and Medicare not just socialism, but “Marxism”.
