Alan Grayson, who runs ‘on crazy,’ says GOP runs on hate; mockery ensues

U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., believes the GOP won convincingly in last week’s midterm election because its candidates ran on hate.

The bombastic congressman from Florida posted this message, complete with imagery, Saturday on Twitter:

We know Democrats think voters are stupid, but what does it say about them if they cast their ballots so convincingly in favor of Republicans for such a callous reason?

One thing is certain, Grayson knows a thing or two about hate.

Best known for saying on the House floor that Republicans want Americans to “die quickly,” he also called his 2010 opponent, U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, R-Fla., “Taliban Dan,” and used an image of a burning cross in an email likening the tea party to the Ku Klux Klan.

Needless to say, his tweet spurred social media users to offer their take. Here are a few samples as seen on Twitter, see if you can pick up on a theme:
