He has had several of these nutty ads playing lately, mostly focusing around women's rights issues.

I don't think he's going to have a hard time being reelected anyways.

Mud slinging, but unfortunately Institute for Basic Life Principles actually believes this shit and it's totally true.

The ad is true, not their beliefs.

I really do like Alan Grayson, but Factcheck.org says he took this guy's quotes out of context, and that kinda sucks.

True they were taken out of context... if the context was Webster's lecture, but it wasn't. In the context of the actual ad, they are artfully arranged samples that support Grayson's assertions, all of which are substantiated here:

and here:

and in the words of the Institute itself, here:

Not just out of context... they implied that he said the exact opposite of what he was saying. Shameful.

Anyway, that last link is golden. "Practice self-control, especially in the area of diet." Honey, I'm pretty sure God's will for you involves ordering the salad right now.

Artfully arranged isn't the term I'd use for an ad that seems to be getting noticed primarily for the fact that it was misquoted rather than pointing out Webster's insane stances. I'm sure internet sleuths know the whole story, but barring a change in the media's coverage, a Floridian retiree's investigation is probably going to end at GRAYSON SPUN WORDS AROUND.

Granted, considering that Grayson is seven points down in the polls and unfavorably rated by 51 percent of his electorate, his campaign is probably more directed towards post-november projects than preventing a tea party nutjob from taking another seat.

No fair. Democrats can't compare Republicans to the Taliban, its supposed to be the other way around.

Five for the day Cena_Mark showed us he was one of us all along.

Cena_mark
I'm hardly one of you. I'm just pointing out how during the Bush years Dems were compared to the Taliban for being weak on defense. Now Dems have turned that method around on us. Either way its a stupid ad.

kingarthur
Well, finally a political ad that comes out and says it.
takewithfood
The Onion is going to be out of business soon.
Senator_Unger
Hey, remember that time the Republican candidate, who was a draft dodger, morphed a a triple-amputee Vietnam veteran into Bin Laden? Whatever happened to that guy? That's right; he's in the Senate and just got re-elected two years ago. You'll have to excuse me if my heart doesn't bleed for Congressman Grayson's opponent.
SDAusmus
He didn't morph into them, the ad just showed Saddam and Osama, then Max Cleland and that's TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
