Fall Elections 2010- #2203- Video: The Context Behind Alan Grayson's Despicable "Taliban Dan" Ad - Hot Air

Remember this weekend’s “Taliban Dan” ad released by the Alan Grayson campaign in his desperate bid to remain Congress’ most despicable member? The one that shows Daniel Webster repeating a Biblical verse about wives submitting to their husbands, along with another where Webster says “she should submit to me”? Grayson used these clips to accuse Webster of being a terrorist and religious extremist. However, while no one should be surprised that Grayson took the clips out of context, it may surprise people to find out just how out of context they actually were: So, write a journal. Second, find a verse. I have verses for my wife. Don’t pick the ones that say, uh, “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,” and so on, instead of “Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands.” She can pray that if she wants to, but don’t you pray it.  Read more........  This is what Daniel Webster actually said, see below the Ad that Alan Grayson ran.

Worst Political Ad Ever- "Taliban Daniel Webster'- Behold the ad that actually takes on Allahpundit’s challenge and beats out Alan Grayson’s sleazy attempt to call Daniel Webster a draft dodger, after Webster’s attempt to enter the service was blocked for medical reasons (and four years of ROTC, too). The new winner? Alan Grayson, who wants to keep his seat in Congress in the worst possible way, and is at least succeeding on the means. In this ad, he paints Webster as a dangerous religious extremist by showing Webster quoting a rather well-known part of the Bible, an association that would make a whole lot of Democrats and Republicans “extremists” by connection, which is merely foolish and tone-deaf. Grayson manages to sink completely into the effluvium and into infamy with his new nickname for Webster, however: Read more.......  Thanks goodness for honest media to expose what Alan Grayson tried to do, he is a train wreck off the tracks, hopefully headed to spend January in Florida.  The latest in many examples of someone who needs to be defeated in November.

Justice: Webster Up 7 Over Grayson -the latest Sunshine State Poll was conducted mainly before the smear in the “Taliban Dan” ad was exposed and widely condemned, which means Grayson may still be hurtling downward:  In one of the most closely watched U.S. House races in the nation, Republican Daniel Webster now holds a 7-point lead over Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson in Central Florida’s 8th Congressional District, according to a new Sunshine State News Poll.  Webster, a former state senator, leads the freshman congressman 43-36 in the survey of 559 likely voters conducted Sept. 25-27. TEA (“Taxed Enough Already”) Party candidate Peg Dunmire drew 6 percent and NPA hopeful George Metcalfe garnered 3 percent, while 9 percent remained undecided (2 percent cited “other” and 1 percent refused to state).  Read more...........
