(Newser) – Florida Rep. Alan Grayson—you’ll remember him as the guy who summed up the Republican health care plan as “die quickly”—upped the ante in his little spat with Sarah Palin yesterday, calling her “an inspiration to quitters all over the country.” Palin had recently remarked that she couldn’t say anything about Grayson with her daughter in the room, to which Grayson had responded by calling her an “Alaskan dingbat.”

“Look, she’s not even a political figure anymore,” he told CNN. “She’s just a reality show personality, that’s where all this is heading. She just wants to make money.”
