Anthony Weiner: I know Alan Grayson’s crazy but please vote for him

posted at 6:33 pm on October 25, 2010 by Allahpundit

Via David Freddoso. I assume Dan Webster’s campaign is already hard at work turning this into an attack ad, but in case not, let me supply them with the quote they’ll need. Politico, Oct. 26, 2009:

Republicans and Democrats slammed Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) for calling Linda Robertson, an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, a “K Street whore” in a month-old radio interview that circulated on Capitol Hill Monday night…

The remarks are the latest to surface in a string of controversial statements by Grayson, who said on the Alex Jones radio show that he believes Robertson, a former Enron lobbyist, is not qualified to pass judgment on intricate financial matters.

It’s clear that his colleagues’ opinion of him has suffered.

“Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?” asked Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)

Weiner apologized the next day, but I doubt “Taliban Dan” has to worry much about Grayson taking umbrage at unfairness if he forgets to mention that. As for this spot, why America’s worst politician would resort to featuring a guy in his ads who once famously dumped on him is beyond me. Maybe he was hoping that people wouldn’t remember the “happy meal” quote (sorry, AG!) or, just maybe, he couldn’t find any other Democrats at this point willing to support him publicly. I doubt the latter theory is true, though, as much as we all might wish it was; in the interest of holding the House, the party appears to be fully united behind this tool. How united? Read this and weep, my friends.

Weiner ain’t exactly wrapped too tight himself.

What a d…!

FloatingRock on October 25, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Another Democrat jackwagon.

NoNails on October 25, 2010 at 6:37 PM

It’s Florida’s 8th. Prior to Grayson, it hasn’t been represented by a Democrat since 1983. It’s a GOP-leaning district. They’re not going to be impressed by Joe Biden and Anthony Weiner backing Crazy Al.

amerpundit on October 25, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Weiner is a hotdog.

Chewy the Lab on October 25, 2010 at 6:37 PM

Democrat’s contempt for our intelligence is astounding. Of course, they may have some legitimate cause in some cases…look how many fools continue to vote for these idiots.

katieanne on October 25, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Stand back! He`s gonna spaz out again!

ThePrez on October 25, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Swell. The VP will be campaigning, in person, with the charming Alan Grayson this week. Super.

Well, it was either that or watching the septic tanks on the Vice President’s mansion get cleaned.

Grayson or septic tanks? Septic tanks or Grayson?

It’s a tough call.

SteveMG on October 25, 2010 at 6:40 PM

Weiner and Grayson are both whiners.

GarandFan on October 25, 2010 at 6:40 PM

Obviously he didn’t read the Newsweek article about Grayson being the worst congressman ever.

milwife88 on October 25, 2010 at 6:40 PM

SteveMG on October 25, 2010 at 6:40 PM

At least with the septic tanks you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that the sh!t was actually removed.

What will they call the campaign, A Gaff A Minute?

Kini on October 25, 2010 at 6:53 PM

Lord, I can’t wait for election night.

I just hope there’s a broadcast showing Grayson while the results roll in.

There will be a frothing, rage filled speech belching forth insanity like the world has never seen. Hell, he might lose total control and sacrifice small animals before it’s over!

BacaDog on October 25, 2010 at 6:55 PM

when all you have is a weiner, then you just might be a d!ck…

ted c on October 25, 2010 at 6:56 PM

Doesn’t Anthony Weiner know that Happy Meals are evil tools of the corrupt corporate system meant to keep children fat and enslaved to Big Fast Food?

Good Solid B-Plus on October 25, 2010 at 6:57 PM

That boy is about as bright as a diamond in a dog’s ass on a moonlit night.

A fry short? Nah the only thing Grayson has left in his Happy Meal is the Looney Tunes.

canditaylor68 on October 25, 2010 at 7:06 PM

It’s hard to imagine why the DCCC has cut some many of their incumbents loose but going to bat for Grayson. That whole party seems crazed to me.

They’re both weiners and frozen weiners stick together until you put them in them microwave where, if you forget them, they explode.

Hopefully the Grayson’s Poupon weiner will be forgotten.

Rod on October 25, 2010 at 7:11 PM

Yep more than a single fry short. Hell the dude look like Grimace.

Can you just imagine Biden and Grayson on the same podium…?

d1carter on October 25, 2010 at 7:14 PM

Weiner: Grayson either does or doesn’t represent the whole of the American people based on which soundbite sounds best in context.

This goes to show Rep. Weiner ain’t playing with a full deck either

It’s not that Alan Grayson is a raving lunatic who should have been carted off to the funny farm ages ago; it’s just that he misunderstood, right Tony-baby?

Along the same lines that you are misunderstood in that you are backing this certified wackjob for another two years of doing absolutely nothing useful in Congress, other than condemning with a foaming at the mouth passion any and all things Conservative, isn’t that right, Tony-baby?

Well, Tony, We The People have some really sad sad news for you and your beloved colleague.

November 2………………HE’S OUTTA THERE!!!!!!!

And unless the people of your district have slipped a couple notches in the common sense catagory, come next time you’re up for re-election, Tony-baby, you get to follow right behind him back to Happy Hollow, or wherever morons like you and Grayson come from!

You wanker!

teacherman on October 25, 2010 at 7:27 PM

Maybe Grayson’s more unhappy about having a short Weiner comparing him to a Happy meal when everyone knows he’s all about Whoppers.

chickasaw42 on October 25, 2010 at 7:41 PM

Always fun to watch an architect of the status quo demonize the status quo.

Floridians deserve everything they get for voting in people like Grayson and Crist.

CVMA-Dredd on October 25, 2010 at 7:42 PM

To be fair, we did also elect Jeb twice. Grayson was elected by the nitwits down in Happyland, and Crist just managed to hide his crazy well.

At least we aren’t Minnesota.

Biden: “Stand up, Chuck!”
Anonymous aide (whispering): “Uh, sir. That man is in a wheelchair.”
Grayson: “Then Republicans like Dan Webster want him dead!!”

tims472 on October 25, 2010 at 9:10 PM

Absolutely perfect example of the left. Can’t make this stuff up.

The Dimbulbs are tinkering with forces beyond their control and risk total annihilation if the two streams of Teh Crazy represented by Biden and Grayson cross! The horror! The horror!

I sense the possibility of a fatwa having been issued on the DCCC. Well, he IS crazy, right?

Is being a Weiner like the same as being a *Potsie*?

The “outside interests” he mentions would be We The People.

Mojave Mark on October 25, 2010 at 10:27 PM

The Republican leadership ought to be targeting Grayson for national ridicule the same way the Dems have targeted O’Donnell. Even if Coons has the election in the bag, the Dems are putting money into attack ads hitting O’Donnell because they figure smearing her helps them influence other races. We ought to be doing the same with Grayson.

Caiwyn on October 25, 2010 at 10:29 PM

Weiner has the perfect name and it fits him to a T, he is a weiner! He is the “typical” Democrat as Obama would say.

SgtRed on October 26, 2010 at 9:50 AM

Who the hell shot this alleged ad and with what? A handycam?

crazywater on October 26, 2010 at 10:10 AM

Tbe only problem is that Florida is the east coast version of California. Both have extremely large numbers of retirees, large parts of the Disney empire, good college football, and a government run by wackos. Look, this is the same group that elected Grayson and Charlie Criss. Do you think there chance that Grayson gets re-elected. I won’t believe it’s not possible until the final pregnant hanging chad is counted. Looney toons is as looney toons does, and in both cases they have no concept of reality.
