Alan Grayson is fundraising off of Glenn’s back again…or at least he thinks he is. From his desperate final fundraising pitch on his Facebook page:
According to the Examiner, this is what Glenn Beck said on the air, earlier this week:
“It’s OK if the Republicans lose every seat in the Senate and the House except for one. As long as that one is Alan Grayson losing.”
Yes, “according to the Examiner” Glenn did say this:
Beck: …It’s okay if the republicans lose every seat in the Senate and the House except for one. As long as that one is Alan Grayson losing.
But, this isn’t the Washington Examiner, the newspaper–it’s Examiner.com–a collection of bloggers. The Huffington Post, actually gets the story right:
“Sarah,” one of Beck’s co-hosts said, in a playful intro to the discussion. “I’m wondering if you are on board with my personal aspirations here for this election, which is, it’s okay if the republicans lose every seat in the senate and the house except for one, as long as that one is Alan Grayson losing.”
So, Glenn didn’t even say it. I did. The Huffington Post has it right. In fact, even Alan Grayson’s own Wikipedia page has it right. So, why would you reference a random blogger over the Obama-approved-news-source, the Huffington Post? Well, because throwing my name around won’t raise any money for you. Glenn’s will. When Grayson wants something he will say anything. Remember this research quality next time he’s talking about an important issue.
Interestingly enough, the Examiner.com blogger who posted this story has posted eleven straight stories about Alan Grayson. Who posts eleven straight stories about Alan Grayson? (Except for me, of course.)
