Video: Grayson taken to the woodshed by MSNBC?
Hot Air ^ | SEPTEMBER 27, 2010 | Ed MORRISSEY

Posted on 09/28/2010 2:22:02 PM PDT by RobinMasters

We criticize MSNBC enough for its naked advocacy on behalf of the Democrats and Barack Obama, so in all fairness, we should note that they do have limits … and Alan Grayson apparently found them. Contessa Brewer engages Grayson on his disgraceful, dishonest “Taliban Dan” smear and — to her credit — refuses to let him off the hook for it.

At one point, Grayson accuses Brewer of distracting attention from women’s issues, but Brewer fires back and tells Grayson that he approved the ad and its own off-message smears and out-of-context quotes. If Grayson was serious about the issues, Brewer asks, why not just stick to the issues rather than issue an ad rated “false” by Factcheck?

The detestable Alan Grayson is challenged by MSNBC Contessa Brewer, he doesn’t back away from one bit. Brewer continues to challenge Grayson: “Why twist his words?”

Probably a one-day thing where MSNBC can use to call themselves non-partisan

The sad thing is that Dan Webster has run a weak and limp campaign, and his late run in the primary beat out some real conservative Tea Party candidates who would be challenging Grayson hard.

Webster is the reason that the GOP needs to dump the Liberal RINO element. A Tea Party candidate would be way ahead of Grayson by now

No doubt. I’d watch if they did that with all candidates, but I don’t expect to be changing my viewing habits.

And MSNBC picked a real POS to be “objective” about. Even liberals hate Grayson.

When it comes to Grayson it's not wise to blame the victim.

This man is so utterly vile even your most aggressive and in your face Conservative would still find the puke out there telling the most eggregious lies.

Where is the Mafia when they are really needed.

Funny, he was such a media darling when he was slandering George Bush. The unintended consequences of constantly electing psychotic, sub-human, flotsam.

Perhaps we shouldn’t blame the congressman, as he is clearly and classically mentally ill. We should instead blame anyone who supported him for office and/or voted for him... Kinda like the rest of this dysfunctional regime.

Brewer: (asks question)
Grayson: “I’m going to refuse to answer your question and instead talk about how my opponent refuses to answer reporters’ questions.”
Brewer: (asks question again)
Grayson: “You’re doing it. You are!”
Brewer: (asks question again)
Grayson: “I know you are but what am I”
Brewer: “T***k you”
Grayson: “T***k you”

a fully grown ‘adult’.

with the mind of a 13 year old child.

Liberalism is a mental disorder. It is the same a autism or ADD. It is a symptom of Narcissist Personality Disorder. It is a real disease.

And the Left really has it.

Alan 'Shrek' Grayson must be the new benchmark for Leftist amoral deviancy since we've discovered where MoreShitNBC's high-end repugnancy threshold is located.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I was forced to watch CNN yesterday as the hotel I’m staying in does not carry FOX. Surprisingly enough, Anderson Cooper was doing a report on irresponsible attack ads and his main focus was Grayson. He said that if a Conservative did what Grayson did, the media would be all over it. I was shocked.

Daniel Webster is a fine Conserevative, strong Christian, and a major friend to homeschoolers in Florida.

Grayson stinks so badly that when he opens his mouth buzzards are knocked of sh!twagons at a 100 yards. Maybe MSNBC is worried some of Grayson’s stink might rub off on some of their pet Rats.

I sent Webster $100.00 yesterday. I’d send more if I could find a credible poll that showed Webster had a good chance to beat Grayson.

I donated $100 to him a little while ago.

Webster seems like a decent and honest person, if a bit reserved. I won’t fault him for trying to run a clean campaign and refusing to get in the mud with the likes of Grayson.

Honestly, with respect to Grayson, I’d donate to a uber-liberak one-eyed yellow dog with mange if he had a chance to beat Grayson. Grayson has GOT to go!

I’ll bet Grayson was a bully in school who liked to threaten other kids half his size. The guy is so patently unlikeable, I can’t understand how even the Democrats ever voted him into office.

I’ll give Brewer credit for not giving in to Grayson on the one issue, but she accepted his other claims about Webster very easily.

Wow, I TOTALLY agree with you! I met his campaign manager and absolutely freaked out when I did!!! He’s totally worried about a ‘purple district’ so he isn’t going to do anything that will “turn off the middle”, inclusive of thinking that Palin is toxic and Romney’s the man!

I am seriously worried about this race.

If Grayson’s opponent was as radical as Grayson is saying, Grayson would have surrendered by now.

Contessa must understand their will be a new sheriff in town soon since Zucker got fired by NBC.

Either that or she is auditioning for Fox News.

I don’t know if she’s still around but “Contesa” used to be a gossipy puppet on Spanish-language TV. Calling a female “Contesa” was a backhanded way of saying that she didn’t know how to mind her own business.

The campaign manager should be more worried about the fact that this district has a very large "fringe" ~ and no middle at all.

That "fringe" is not at all like a "middle" or even so-called "independents" ~ these people are attracted to Grayson because he is so clearly mentally ill.

My advice to Webster and other stable people is to MOVE OUT before they begin wandering the streets.
