Video: Worst political ad ever?

posted at 12:55 pm on September 27, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

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:

Gee, I seem to recall how Democrats used to shriek hysterically about having people impugn their patriotism for opposing the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now, suddenly, quoting either Ephesians 5 or Colossians 3 makes one the equivalent of a terrorist group that is our enemy in the field?  TPM avoids taking any kind of a principled stand on this smear, noting only that “reporters and partisans argue about dubbing a Congressional candidate a member of the Taliban[.]“  Do they really “argue” about it?  Which reporters, or even rational partisans, think that calling a candidate “Taliban Dan” is somehow both instructive and reasonable?  The only one making that argument even on a general basis is Markos Moulitsas in his book American Taliban — an argument that even many on the Left rejected as extreme.

TPM also calls the quote “damning,” which may be true only if one has never actually read the Bible and this particular passage in context.  In both Ephesians and Colossians, the text does call for women to submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord — and also for husbands to “love their wives” (Colossians), and to do so “as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to make her holy” (Ephesians).  In other words, wives submit to their husbands, and husbands sacrifice themselves for their wives and children.   It’s a passage intended on underscoring the necessity of both spouses to act in sacrificial ways to each other for marriages to become a sacrament, as well as to succeed in the normal, prosaic manner.

Far from showing Webster as some sort of Wahhabist, this ad exposes Grayson as completely ignorant of this particular, well-debated section of the New Testament and a bit of a bigot regarding Christianity, as well as an empty suit completely unable to offer anything other than ad hominem namecalling as an argument for his re-election.

Update: Oh, and let’s not forget the faux-Arabic font on the graphic, too, which adds to the overall offensiveness of the spot.

Grayson is definitely thinking out of the box in an odd way.

He’s either nuts or has a sack full of them.

I’m SO glad that the Kos Kids keep throwing money at this idiot.

There’s no way that “Teacups” retains in a purple district the way he’s slinging mud around at his opponent and at the right in general, so him having a $4 million warchest is a massive misallocation of resources in a year where the Dems are going to get wiped out.

These people are unethical in every respect. The truth is immaterial to winning and continuing to feed at the public trough.

TheBigOldDog on September 27, 2010 at 1:04 PM

In both Ephesians and Colossians, the text does call for women to submit to their husbands as they do to the Lord — and also for husbands to “love their wives” (Colossians), and to do so “as Christ loved the church and gave himself for her to make her holy” (Ephesians). In other words, wives submit to their husbands, and husbands sacrifice themselves for their wives and children. It’s a passage intended on underscoring the necessity of both spouses to act in sacrificial ways to each other for marriages to become a sacrament, as well as to succeed in the normal, prosaic manner.

Women are basically property under the Koran that can be beaten and must do what ever the man tells them to do. There is no Koranic injunction for men to sacrifice for their wives or be kind to their wives.

The Bible is much kinder to women than the Koran is when it comes to marriage. The Bible speaks of compromise and sacrifice for the other spouse.

Which is the extremist position here?

Calling Christians (at least those on the right) the American Taliban is nothing new, lefty blogs have been doing it for years. In fact, i think Markos Moulithvwhatever recently wrote a book with that very title. If you ever want to see real racism and bigotry, just go to liberal blogs, they don’t bother hiding their hatred for white people and Christians because they know no one will call them out on it.

That’s an understatement.

A socialist idiot I know loves Grayson to death and sent me a link to this particular ad as a reason why he’d send “Teacups” money if he actually had any.

Of course, this guy also hates Christians with a passion because they have the temerity to say they don’t approve of his lifestyle, so a pol making a Taliban comparison to a Christian gives him a tingle up his leg.

Frankly I’d put this as a tie with Renee Elmers (R) retarded blatantly pointless anti-Muslim ads she’s running against Etheridge (D-the ) in North Carolina. What a tw@t she is. She could be talking about the economy, Obamacare, bailouts, unemployment, immigration, etc., but she blows her money to basically call all Muslims terrorist and somehow the Ground Zero mosque is a lot more relevant in NC than economic issues.

Apologetic California on September 27, 2010 at 1:24 PM

My sister, one of the Kos Krowd, seems to feel that anyone who’s political opinions are informed by their Christian belief, is “trying to force their talibangelical views” on the rest of the country.

Perhaps I need to come up with some cutsey form of taliban for the atheist/agnostic/liberals, whose personal beliefs inform their political stances at least as much.

This ad is just part and parcel of the standard liberal view that Christians are evil and we hate anyone who doesn’t look AND think exactly like us. Classic projection anyone?

As usual, the irony is stunning. Submitting “as unto the Lord” indicates that the wife should do nothing that the Lord would not have her do. Implicitly, the husband is not a god who can issue arbitrary commands.

Moreover, which party really has been more of a friend to the Taliban? It would be that party which is soft on national defense and that is in the grip of political correctness.

Lastly, that fleeting shot of Grayson, the Really Great Guy, kissing babies is heavily whitewashed. His is the most diabolical countenance I have seen in politics.

I can’t find House Bill 1586 where he supposedly:
1) proposed making devoice illegal, even in the case of domestic violence, and
2) tried to make alimony illegal for an adulterous wife but NOT to an adulterous husband.

Did he “vote to deny abused women healthcare” or just refused to carve out an exception and force people to pay for healthcare of abused women?

There are at least a few good Canadians here on HA, not to mention she has long been an ally of the United States.

Disgusting.

Yup. No sense tarring the whole country when all you need to do is call Drywall a blithering idiot and move on.

I don’t know why anyone bothers answering his childish poo-flinging posts any more.

Boycott Drywall.

We just don’t care about the flags of you lesser countries. When the rest of you matter we’ll pay attention to your flags. Canada is hardly even a real country.

Go look in the mirror, realize your mistake, blush, take it back, or at least don’t repeat it.

One Dave Rywall Canada doesn’t make.

Indeed, indeed.

So I guess calling him Al “Qaeda” Grayson would be too over the top, then?

I DENOUNCE MYSELF!!

A good Webster ad could be called “Grayson’s Inanity,” riffing off the TV show and providing some choice highlights of this lowlife. Of course, if viewers read “inanity” as a different word, that would be unfortunate.

Anyone who votes for Grayson should be ashamed of themselves and go out and stand in traffic. I can’t help but believe this is going to backfire on Grayson. This is Florida, part of the Bible belt! There can’t be that many people in the of Florida who are that stupid are there…..oh wait a minute, the 2000 election!

It was just a jab. I enjoyed Canada when I visited and I bought a T-shirt of your flag. Canada sent troops to fight in WWII when America was still trying to sit it out and that’s enough to deserve respect. Plus you gave us Gordon Lightfoot, Rush, and Moose Head. You’re OK hosers.

Webster should just run Grayson’s ads. They’re only going to raise GOP turnout, which is what this race is about. No one could possibly be on the fence over issues in FL-8.

deewhybee, all’s good.

Rush and I are not Canadians.

Get this: I just got done with a job in downtown Whorelando. This clown next door always has liberal signs up.
I noticed he’s taken down his Grayson sign and , get this, replaced it with an Obama/Biden sign!! LMMFAO!!

Lanceman on September 27, 2010 at 4:03 PM

ladyingray on September 27, 2010 at 3:59 PM

Thank you, lady.

Grayson has to pay high school students $10 an hour to wear his T-shirts. He can’t even get them to do it for free.
