Liberal Florida Rep. Alan Grayson, who once quipped that the Republican health care plan is "Don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly," will tee off tonight on Larry King Live with Minnesota's own queen of the rhetorical flourish, Rep. Michele Bachmann.
Grayson recently tweeted that the two will be discussing health care, adding "Are you ready for some great TV?"
Bachmann spokester Dave Dziok confirmed that the congresswoman is slated to appear on the show this evening.
Grayson and Bachmann, though polar opposites politically, are both frequently targeted by their opponents for spouting what some view as extreme rhetoric. Grayson, for example, took some heat last year for calling a female lobbyist a "K Street whore." (Bachmann is not the cursing type, however.)
What will happen when these two face off on live television? Tune in at 9 p.m. to find out.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
