GLENN: I want to play one of the worst campaign ads I think I've ever, ever heard. If you were like me and thought Shirley Sherrod deserved no should demand an apology, listen to this campaign ad.
GRAYSON: I'm congressman Alan Grayson and I approved this message.
VOICE: Religious fanatics try to take away our freedom in Afghanistan, in Iran, and right here in Central Florida.
WEBSTER: Wives submit yourselves to your own husbands.
VOICE: Daniel Webster wants to impose his radical fundamentalism on us.
WEBSTER: She should submit to me. That's in the Bible.
VOICE: Webster tried to deny battered women medical care and the right to divorce their abusers.
WEBSTER: Submit to me.
VOICE: He wants to force raped women to bear the child.
WEBSTER: Submit to me.
VOICE: Taliban Dan Webster, hands off our bodies and our laws.
GLENN: That is an incredible ad. You have a candidate saying women must submit to their husbands, submit to me. That's an incredible statement. Accurate. It is in the Bible, but is that, that the way people live their lives? Is that their understanding of that phrase? Is that this guy's understanding of this phrase? That's incredible. Taliban Dan indeed. Unless you care to look at the entire statement. Now, this isn't lost videotape. This isn't videotape that, oh, well, that was an hour later in the speech. Let's just listen to what he said in context.
WEBSTER: A journal, second? Find a verse. I have a verse for my wife. I have verses for my wife: Don't pick the ones that say she should submit to me. That's in the Bible, but pick the ones that you're supposed to do.
GLENN: Do you understand what just happened? Don't pick the verses like she must submit to me. It's in the Bible, but pick the ones you're supposed to do. Do you hear that?
TheBlaze: Grayson is more awful than we thought
STU: Yeah. And, you know, the audio gets cut off a little bit there, but he goes on to say, you know, instead pick the ones like love your wife even as Christ loved the church and gave himself for it, as opposed to wives submit to your own husbands. And that's where he picks it. As opposed he takes out, as opposed to and just plays wives submits to their own husbands. That's incredible.
PAT: This attack ad, I don't know if we've mentioned yet, is from Alan Grayson.
GLENN: Alan Grayson. I don't
PAT: One of the most despicable people.
GLENN: I don't know how Alan Grayson wins.
PAT: How he lives with himself. I don't know how he lives and sleeps at night.
STU: If your wife or daughter started dating a guy like this, you would cry. You would cry yourself to sleep at night. He's a horrible person, horrible. I mean, that's not just a bad politician. That's horrible.
GLENN: No, no, I don't think that I've ever seen anybody in congress as bad as Alan Grayson, I mean as a person.
GLENN: You know, I don't know him. I just know his words, and there's they're not we're not taking we're not taking him out of context. We're looking at his words and the things that he has said and done, and there is no limit to this man. There is no floor
GLENN: to this man. There's no place that he is unwilling to go.
PAT: And it's interesting because even when it was brought up that, hey, you took that way out of context and made it and they even edited the part where he's talking about it's in the Bible a little bit to make it fit better into the statement, to make it sound like that's what he was saying. When that was brought up to him, they still defended the ad.
STU: Yeah. It's not
PAT: They didn't back off from it one iota.
STU: It's not like he was saying we didn't have this one video, that's not all he said. They are standing by that that's okay to do.
PAT: Do you have their comment, the comment from the campaign?
STU: Yeah. Give me one second. I'll pull it up here.
PAT: It is unbelievable. They're standing by, taking him out of context. And is this not what everybody was screaming, the Democrats were screaming during the Jeremiah Wright period? "You're taking him out of context! Sound bites, it's a sound bite world!" When you take somebody out of context, that means that you change the meaning of what they're trying to say. That was never done to Jeremiah Wright. That's absolutely what was done here with Daniel Webster.
STU: Yeah. Here's the campaign spokesman for Grayson: The Taliban is an extremist government regime that forced its crazy rightwing views on the populous it governs. If elected Dan Webster would force his crazy rights extreme crazy rightwing views on Central Florida.
GLENN: So here's the thing, Central Florida.
GLENN: You just have to ask yourself this one thing: We can disagree on policies. We can. You can be for healthcare, you can you know, you can be for bigger government, but is there any shame? Is there anything? Do you just accept any character because your side will win? You know, I who was it that said last week when they were talking about, you know, the guy in Delaware, that he should have won because, well, the Republicans would have definitely won in Delaware? Who was it that said, well, when? Or what? Win without values and character and the integrity and the principles that we all uphold or strive for, what is it what is that win worth? This is the kind of thing that Americans need to be striving for now. We can disagree, but we have to be able to tell the truth. When America said they wanted hope and change, I wanted hope and change, too, from the Bush administration. I didn't like the way the Bush administration was handling things. We can unite on that, but you can't have somebody like Alan Grayson in office. It's it's reprehensible. It really is. Do we have that little respect for our republic? Do we really have that little respect for the congress? I mean, I know congress is unpopular, but why? Because of this! Are we going to restore it or not? Not talking about policies. Just talking about character. Does character matter? The answer is yes.
