Florida Congressman Alan Grayson goes to Hollywood to debate Bush (James Adomian)

This is unusual. Alan Grayson, a Democratic congressman from Florida, will debate former GOP President George W. Bush tonight — except it's not really Bush but instead comedian James Adomian, and the live debate is happening as part of a comedy benefit in Hollywood that also will feature performances by Patton Oswalt, Jimmy Dore and Eddie Pepitone. The event begins at 6 p.m. Pacific at M Bar. Ticket info here.

For background, here's a video Adomian starred in last November wondering how Congressman Grayson could be a "Democrat with guts." Roll the clip.
