An introduction to Florida's 8th congressional district Democrat representative Alan Grayson shameless smear against his opponent Daniel Webster, from George Will, via. Memeorandum:
Webster, 61, the third-generation manager of his family’s air-conditioning business, served in Florida’s legislature for 28 years, becoming the first Republican speaker of the state House in 122 years—since Reconstruction—then serving in the state Senate until retired by term limits two years ago. A devout Christian who home-schooled his six children, in 2009 he addressed a religious conference of men in Nashville on the subject of how to be a good husband. Concerning relations with their wives, he urged the men not to focus on biblical verses that enjoin wives to be submissive: “Don’t pick the ones that say, ‘She should submit to me.’ That’s in the Bible, but pick the ones that you’re supposed to do. So instead, ‘Love your wife, even as Christ loved the church he gave himself for it’ as opposed to, ‘Wives, submit yourself to your own husband.’ ”
Grayson sliced and spliced a videotape of Webster’s words to depict Webster as saying, “She should submit to me. That’s in the Bible.” When asked about his lie-by-editing, Grayson blithely said, “These were his words.” Grayson’s ad says: “Religious fanatics try to take away our freedom in Afghanistan, in Iran, and right here in central Florida…Daniel Webster wants to impose his radical fundamentalism on us.” Hence “Taliban Dan.”
I said this in September (funny how it sounds a little like Will):
Florida's Rep. Alan Grayson is one of the most despicable, far-left, race-baiting moonbats in congress. I know, I know, the list is long but it's true. Perhaps put him in the top 10 but with a proclivity to open his extremist-leftist yapper and say things in public that most far-left, neo-Bolshevik pols only chat about at limo-liberal cocktail parties.Please, dear readers, if you live in Florida's 8th congressional district, send this disgusting individual packing to the unemployment line. Even if you don't reside, please donate to his opposition, Daniel Webster.
