Cong. Grayson’s Email Today Not First Green Lantern Reference

Bookmark and Share

After we broke the news earlier about former Congressman Alan Grayson using Green Lantern heavily in an email today, friend of the blog Elana reminded me that Grayson had Green Lantern on the mind this weekend as well when he spoke at Netroots Nation 2011.  From Elana’s tweets of the weekend.

By just saying Grayson, she confused the non-politically plugged in and had to tell someone it was Alan not Dick Grayson, the former Nightwing/current Batman.

P.S. Certain sites, feel free to swipe this too and not give us credit… jackasses…
