Video: The Townhall remix “ad” for Grayson

posted at 1:36 pm on September 30, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

We have to give some serious kudos to our Salem brethren at Townhall, especially new political editor Guy Benson, who narrates this self-proclaimed “fake message” that attempts to feed sauce to the gander.  After hacking Dan Webster’s innocuous comments at a faith-related event into out-of-context pieces and proclaiming the Republican “Taliban Dan,” the team at Townhall figured that a similar ad could be concocted out of Grayson’s public statements in the same manner.  The only trouble, it seems, is how to limit it to just 60 seconds (via The Right Scoop):

What, no dead puppies?

Guy gives a more serious look at Midwest Congressional races in the first of his two-part analysis on “Big Ten country.” Let’s hope that the Taliban and Mephistopheles don’t make any appearances there …

What, no dead puppies?

The standard Navy phrase in submarines is “But he molests collies”.

This is great! They were doing it on WDBO the other morning!

When did Townhall start working for Grayson? Thet’s the best campaign ad he’s had so far.

BacaDog on September 30, 2010 at 1:44 PM

Thanks for the laugh. Good one.

NTWR on September 30, 2010 at 1:44 PM

I don’t usually watch any posted clips, but I despise this guy so much that I had to peek. It’s great! Cons could do this with every Dim candidate. Thanks, Townhall!

They were doing a radio ‘commercial’ where he wanted to punch seniors and children in the head.

Lanceman on September 30, 2010 at 1:52 PM

Love it!! Grayson is worthless and I hope his stupidity finally wakes up the voters of FL to send him back to the bread lines he’s creating!

ihasurnominashun on September 30, 2010 at 1:58 PM

That is how to fight guys like him…ridicule him.

Gray’s Anatomy Grayson’s Inanity

Christien on September 30, 2010 at 2:04 PM

Grayson is evil. He loves Satan, whether he knows it or not.

IronDioPriest on September 30, 2010 at 2:12 PM

Very good ad. It is about time that these yahoo’s like Grayson get a good taste of their own medicine. Republicans need to take the gloves off and quit treating their opponents like respectable people.

mobydutch on September 30, 2010 at 2:12 PM

Actually, all you have to do is listen to Grayson in context to understnd how bad he is.

rbj on September 30, 2010 at 2:16 PM

Love the music

NaCly dog on September 30, 2010 at 1:39 PM

Okay …… I retired from boats in 81 and don’t recall this phrase at all. I’d love to hear the etymology of the “collies” thing.

oldfiveanddimer on September 30, 2010 at 2:19 PM

If the voters believed the ad Grayson ran, then they will believe this one too. The poor Floridians will be so confused they won’t know what to do.

Van Taylor, Our local state rep candidate (who spent more money than God on his race against the RINO’s hand-picked successor) sent his last mailer our with the big bold letters:
VAN TAYLOR HATES PUPPIES!
That mailer got a great response and just absolutely finished off the competition. It’s final line, after a clear rebuttal to all the other silliness he faced was. ‘Oh and I do really like puppies.”

Humor is the deadliest weapon in politics.

michaelo on September 30, 2010 at 2:28 PM

Just play real soundbites of the guy, that should do him in.

Ian on September 30, 2010 at 2:30 PM

Wow, I know I didn’t like the guy but I had NO IDEA that he actually worships SATAN! It actually makes sense because he sure does come across as being rather evil. I hope the voters in his district get the word about this. Can you imagine wanting seniors to die while running in Florida? The nerve of this guy.

:)

volsense on September 30, 2010 at 2:20 PM

We ain’t that stupid. Ain’t you got no volsense? Only if a bunch of kids decide to do the hopey changey thing again.

Lanceman on September 30, 2010 at 2:47 PM

Dude looks like an evil human version of Oscar the Grouch. He’s a human Muppet a$$clown.

TheBigOldDog on September 30, 2010 at 3:32 PM

This is also the colloidal douche that hates Blackwater and had his pasty ass rescued by them…

liquidflorian on September 30, 2010 at 3:34 PM

Love the Exorcist music. Cute. The spot, not Alan Grayson.

GoodSamaritan on September 30, 2010 at 3:35 PM

Wait, wait! I get so confused! And it’s happening a lot lately. You mean all this stuff about Grayson isn’t TRUE?

oldleprechaun on September 30, 2010 at 3:48 PM

Felates Satan, er, Obama!

Western_Civ on September 30, 2010 at 4:26 PM

He kinda looks(and thinks) like Oliver Stone. Gotta be something in the DNA…..

“Your uncle molests collies” (said of Judge Elihu Smails) is a line from Caddyshack. That’s the sum total of my knowledge on its provenance.

DrSteve on September 30, 2010 at 4:51 PM

At the end of the video, was it intended to look like Nixon?

DSchoen on September 30, 2010 at 4:52 PM

Just look at Grayson – the guy is one seriously disturbed individual. For his own safety and the safety of the public he needs to be in an in-patient mental healthcare facility.

What a coincidence! We have a Chuck Schick who used to clerk for Judge Smales here on HA!

Lanceman on September 30, 2010 at 5:31 PM

I think there’s a Lacey Underall over at Ace’s place.

DrSteve on September 30, 2010 at 6:38 PM

Laughed my azz off. Good stuff.
