Hat tip to Hot Air
There are lots of reasons why Florida Congressman Alan Grayson won the 2009 Fousesquawk Jerk of the Year Golden Penguin award. And there's lots of reasons why he just may repeat in 2010. I don't know anything about his opponent in this year's reelection race, Daniel Webster, but I know one thing about this Grayson ad below. It is despicable. But then again, so is Grayson.
According to FactCheck, Webster was deferred while attending ROTC then failed his physical when he tried to enlist.
And what about Grayson? You would think this guy was a decorated war veteran, right? Wrong. Grayson, who was born in 1958, was too young for military service during Viet Nam or during the draft era. In fact, he never served at all.
And who is that narrator in the ad? The Grayson campaign has not identified him. In fact, if one were not paying close attention, the impression might be that is Grayson himself speaking, the "old war horse".
