Okay, the blasphemies, the bitches, the bums. Where the hell is Tuesday already? Watching the ads, I feel like a drowning sailer stuck on a sinking ship. The water's rising, I'm choking, and there's no escape hatch in sight.
Columnist George Will claims that Alan Grayson is the worst politician in the United States. He calls him the smarmiest, which means deceiving, untrustworthy, a man with no principles. Not quite, but I do think Grayson's got more than a few whacko genes.
In one ad Grayson calls his opponent Daniel Webster, “Taliban Dan,” and in another accuses him of draft dodging. Of course that's insane. Webster didn’t commit either of those crimes, but Webster also doesn’t believe in abortion, even as a result of incest or violent crime, and that is a problem with him, or at least for me.
Grayson certainly could’ve handled the information in a clean orderly fashion. Instead, he accused Webster as some kind of radical hysteric and even compared him unfavorably to his namesake, Daniel Webster (they’re not related), who composed the Missouri Compromise in 1850. (That allowed one free state and one slave state to enter the union, but not one without the other).
Suddenly the original Daniel Webster was a Taliban too, or something just as evil? Is Grayson nuts?
The national media picked up his ads, and the man became a source of derision. Too bad, because Grayson’s an economist and offers intelligent answers when asked about policy and solutions to contemporary problems.
In his own ads, Daniel Webster seems like a family man and the picture of success, but I gotta vote for Grayson when it comes to abortion.
You can’t take a woman’s choice away, even if the guy who supports it goes off at the mouth and his campaign style is something out of the Chares Manson book of political strategy.
In the long run Alan Grayson supports and saves a woman's right to choose.
Of course that still leaves us with Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell, and the other Tea Party morons batting ball with the big guys.
Christine O’Donnell now says she’s sorry she approved the ad saying she’s not a witch.
Duh, it wasn’t a good idea?
Countrywide, the entire campaign couldn’t get crazier. All we need next is a dumb group of burglars botching a break-in to the Watergate complex trying to play a few dirty tricks.
Who will they catch, Palin and her little band of witches?
Tune in. It’s not over till Tuesday.
