The Democrats' strongest card in this year's election is that they are serious about the nation's problems while the GOP is beset by birthers, those concerned about repealing the 17th Amendment, and various other esoteric issues such as self-pleasuring. But, Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson is a walking counter-argument to the proposition that liberals are intellectually serious.
He has now launched an ad against his opponent in which he likens him to the Taliban. It is beyond ugly and beneath contempt. I hope Grayson loses.
