This looks like it'll be a good one.

Street Fighting Man: The Political Mind of Alan Grayson is a documentary feature about the re-election campaign of Congressman Alan Grayson (D - FL), who famously said the Republican’s health care plan was simply, “don’t get sick, and if you do, die quickly.” In the traditional sense, the film is a non-partisan look at Grayson’s bid to become the first Democrat to ever win a second term in Florida’s conservative 8th District. In the not-so-traditional sense, it is a satiric look at the political state of our Union.

Republicans are calling Grayson “Enemy Number 1” in the mid-term election. Defeating Grayson is viewed not only as a win for their party, but a symbolic blow to the Democratic Party. This fight for the 8th, with all its competitiveness, juvenilia, and in-fighting, is a microcosm of politics in America in 2010.
