If Dan Webster hadn’t found a theme for his campaign before last weekend, Alan Grayson managed to hand it to the him and the NRCC with his “Taliban Dan” attack. As Webster’s new ad reminds voters in his district, it’s not the first time that Grayson has made an ass out of himself on the national stage. Hot Air readers will remember most of these incidents, and Webster wants to make sure voters do as well — because it paints an ugly, but entirely accurate, picture of disgrace:
I had forgotten about Grayson’s “whore” remark, aimed at Ben Bernanke aide and economist Linda Robertson. Recall what Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner said about Grayson in response, before Grayson later apologized for the remark.
Outspoken Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is under fire from both Republicans and Democrats after a month-old radio interview was posted online in which Grayson is heard calling an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke a “K Street whore.”
You can hear Grayson making the comment about the Bernanke adviser, who is named Linda Robertson, here. “This lobbyist, this K street whore, is trying to teach me about economics,” he said.
Grayson has been widely criticized for his comment, as Politico and the Associated Press report. Republican Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said Grayson is “out of control,” while Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner asked, “Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?”
It doesn’t surprise us, but it probably surprises most of the people in Florida’s 8th CD who voted for him the first time. Hopefully, they won’t make that same mistake again.
Update: That should have been the NRCC, not the NRSC. I’ve corrected the headline and the lead paragraph. Thanks to Dustin S for the heads-up.

At a fundraiser last week at the home of former ABC and CBS News reporter and Obama staffer Linda Douglass, President Barack Obama reportedly told those in attendance he could use a break.
Douglass’ husband is John Phillips, a wealthy lawyer, and the couple hosted Obama and the $30,400 a person fundraiser to raise money for Democrat candidates. Phillips also worked on Obama’s campaign and, when he introduced Obama, he said, “I can remember walking down those snowy streets of Des Moines in the primary… We sleep much better knowing that you are our president at this difficult time,” according to washingtonexaminer.com.
Obama then thanked Phillips and Douglass for their work and acknowledged the two own a nice home in Italy. Obama then reportedly said, “I’d appreciate a little break and some Tuscan sun. Some pasta. I could use it.”
Let me get this straight: Obama has been President about 20 months and has spent all or part of 38 days (according to ABC News) on “vacation.” When he’s not on vacation he’s carted around in fancy cars or an opulent airliner, never opening his own doors, carrying his own bags or preparing his own meals. It seems he plays golf almost every day. But more than a month of vacation with less than two years on the job is not enough?
Let me just say, President Obama, if the work’s too tough for you can quit any time. Remember, you asked for the job. No one forced it on you and, judging by the latest polls, most people would just as soon see you quit.
But take heart: If you want to stick it out, you’re almost halfway through. Your term ends on January 20, 2013. Don’t let the door slap your butt on the way out.
