“At this point, the Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan.”

TALLAHASSEE ‚?? Rep.¬†Alan Grayson¬†just can‚??t help himself.

The Democratic Florida congressman boasts  a sordid history of leveling reprehensible political attacks against his opponents, but his latest may just take the cake.

In a recent fundraising email, Grayson compares the tea party to¬†Klu Klux Klan. As if that weren‚??t enough, the wealthy lawyer turned¬†Central Florida¬†lawmaker included a picture of a burning cross ‚?? an image¬†conjuring¬†the worst racial intonations imaginable.

The email included a transcript of a conversation Grayson had with the Rev. Al Sharpton.

‚??Does the¬†President¬†have the Tea Party on the ropes?‚?Ě Sharpton asked.

‚??I think so. I think ordinary¬†Americansare appalled at the Tea Party‚??s tactics,‚?Ě Grayson says.

‚??At this point, the Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan.‚?Ě

In 2010, Grayson called his 8th Congressional District¬†opponent U.S.¬†Rep.¬†Daniel Webster, R-Fla., a ‚??draft-dodger‚?Ě even though Webster was medically unfit for duty.

Not to be outdone, the progressive congressman ran an ad calling Webster ‚??Taliban Dan,‚?Ě and warned the electorate that ‚??religious fanatics try to take away our freedom inAfghanistan, in¬†Iran¬†and right here in¬†Central Florida.‚?Ě

Grayson¬†also¬†is known for calling Federal Reserve lobbyist¬†Linda Robertson¬†a ‚??whore.‚?Ě On a 2009 radio program, Grayson said, ‚??This lobbyist, this K-Street whore, is trying to teach me about economics.‚?Ě
