Good stuff.

  1. Lefty frothing over the out-of-context quotes in 5… 4…

  2. Heh.

    Loved Chris Mathews’ struggle with STFU. Touch and go there for a few secs. Would he, or would he not get it?

  3. I love how Grayson takes pride in trolling around the internet shouting STFU. He repeated that like it was sage advice from the mountaintop oracle, but it was really some truther on Democratic Underground.

    And I LOVE the ridiculous narrator.

  4. He had better love Satan. They will be spending a lot of time together in the future.

  5. Damn! For a minute there I thought he was telling tingle-leg to STFU.

  6. Alan Grayson is the type of politician I would like Michael Corleone “fix up” like in Part II.

    Maybe we get lucky and his brakes give out on a sharp turn.

    Monsterous dirt bag.

  7. I think Grayson would like to have a red button. Graphic potentially disturbing images. This is his sort of film.

  8. The theme music is from “The Exorcist,” a tune called “Tubular Bells,” if I’m not mistaken. It has a wondrous ability to unsettle people, I think in large part because of the irregular time signature.

  9. Excellent use of the ridiculous against a master of ridiculous. Grayson is totally insane.

  10. Alan Disgrayson’s days are numbered, the man is obviously deranged and it shows, on his face, in his pronouncements, and in his actions.

    His diabolical hatred is deep seated pathological and only partially concealed behind his smarmy grin. Disgrayson takes pleasure in inflicting shock and pain on others. He’s a textbook sociopath.

  11. a pretty good non-joking ad is here:

    my big quibble is that they don’t show how outrageous the editing really was.

  12. Extreme? How about 78+ Republicans who want to force the victims of incest rapists to bear their children?

    As Maher said, “The Democrats have have moved right, and the Republicans have moved into the mental hospital …. [with Jesus].”

  13. Well one troll so far. Nice try “w”. Alan Grayson should STFU and leave the national scene. He can then go on abusing just those people who are unfortunate enough to be in his immediate vicinity.

  14. I have misgivings about forcing rape victims to bear their attackers babies.

    Some women believe that race mixing is wrong. Forcing rape victims to bear their attackers’ babies would, in effect, force some women to violate their deeply-held moral beliefs.

    > Some women believe that race mixing is wrong. Forcing rape victims to bear their attackers’ babies would, in effect, force some women to violate their deeply-held moral beliefs.

    *facepalm*

    nothing more to say about it than that. seriously, wtf?

    Aaron Worthing (e7d72e)

  16. Some people have different moral beliefs than we do. While we do not have to agree with them, we should not forbid them from having such beliefs.

    Michael Ejercito (249c90)

  17. Mike

    you can believe whatever the hell you want. but what you do is another matter.

    I mean if i think i am morally obligated to kill all jews, am i allowed to carry out what i believe?

    Again, *facepalm*

    Aaron Worthing (e7d72e)

  18. mike

    Btw, what about the people who feel morally obligated to prevent what they consider to be the murder of fetuses, by any means necessary. are they allowed to act according to those beliefs?

    Aaron Worthing (e7d72e)

  19. Is M.E. trying to say that white women are more-often raped by blacks and Hispanics?

    Icy Texan (c92f58)

  20. Does anyone have statistics on what percentage of rape victims are impregnated by their attackers?

    Icy Texan (c92f58)

  21. anyone care to bet on which troll “w” is? Its “argument” follows a fairly distinctive pattern.

    JD (53c560)

  22. I always thought that it stood for “I Am The(De) W!”
    Channeling his inner Oliver Stone.

    Icy Texan (c92f58)

  23. I must admit, I am a bit surprised none of the trolls has proclaimed, “Look! O’Keefe!” in this thread yet.

    ConservativeWanderer (41d634)

  24. I bet that “w” resolve to Tennessee.

    JD (eb1dfe)

  25. AW – I think that #14 is an almost-too-successfully-disguised attempt at JDian irony …

    Had he said “Forcing rape victims to abort their attackers’ babies would, in effect, force some women to violate their deeply-held moral beliefs.”, would there have been any rational disagreement ?

  26. Grayson doubles down.

    His new ad is yet nastier than the last.

    It calls the criticism of Grayson ‘attacks on women’s issues’, which really, it’s an attack on quoting someone to say the opposite of what they said.

    It says Webster wants to force women to stay in abusive marriages, but the bill mentioned has no bearing on abuse, and other laws put abusers in jail.

    It says Webster intends to force victims of rape to bear children, but Webster has specifically noted that he intends to do no such thing and enact no such law… he simply has the personal view that abortion is always wrong (I happen to agree). It’s the difference between believing Pepsi tastes bad, and blowing up a Pepsi factory.

    Grayson has decided to keep the focus on his viciousness. This is excellent news for Florida Republicans.

    Dustin (b54cdc)

  27. Grayson’s campaign justifies their lie about Webster ‘forcing abortion’ on Webster’s vote against partial birth abortion. Webster has never attempted to force his opposition to abortion on rape victims (or incest victims). The entire argument is stupid, since partial birth abortion is very unlikely to be needed for a rape victim. To say the least.

    I’m not even mentioning the BS about ‘forcing women not to work’. Some people, even women, think women should stay at home. It’s a legitimate choice and people should be free to do that.

    As far as their claim Webster will force covenant marriage on women (the ad says “don’t let Webster make laws we have to live with), that’s a much harder issue to explain away. A few fact check sites are saying this is a truthful claim, but none of them link to the actual bill. I don’t agree with covenant marriage laws, but the ad’s argument is still wrong.

    The bill didn’t make it out of committee 20 years ago, but most of these bills wind up allowing a divorce for abandonment, a felony, abuse, and adultery. I don’t take Grayson’s word for it that this wasn’t going to be included. The main thrust of these proposals are increased steps before a marriage occurs, so young adults face the consequences and avoid bad marriages. It’s not a marriage women are forced into, but rather an option. further, it’s not legally possible to prevent women from getting a no-fault divorce from a different state. The contract is more of an effort to take marriage seriously, and as a trap forced on women, it would have been easy to get out of and only entered by choice.

    But I suspect had the bill gotten to law, it would have had the provisions Louisiana’s covenant marriage law has. I don’t like mixing religion with law like this, but the ad stretches that legit issue all the way to this ‘deny abused women divorce’ and that’s not been proven by anybody.

  28. Alas

    > Had he said “Forcing rape victims to abort their attackers’ babies would, in effect, force some women to violate their deeply-held moral beliefs.”, would there have been any rational disagreement ?

    Actually official feminism does disagree with that. i have never once heard the NOW crowd condemn the forced abortions going on in china. now i suppose you could say they are all irrational…

    but i don’t see how getting me to agree you can’t force a person to kill her fetus applies anything the other way around. i mean we certainly would notice no contradiction between saying that 1) you should not steal and 2) no person should be forced to steal.
