…but he has accomplished it nicely with a well-deserved evisceration of Alan Grayson.
The money quote:
“Americans of all political persuasions can come together in affirming one proposition: Public life would be improved by scrubbing Rep. Alan Grayson from it. This act of civic hygiene probably will be performed Nov. 2 by voters of Florida’s Eighth Congressional District. Polls indicate that a majority of them plan to deny Grayson, 52, a second term by electing his resonantly named opponent, Daniel Webster. Grayson, never missing an opportunity to live down to his reputation, ridicules Webster’s ’18th-century name.’ Given Grayson’s relentless advertising of his intellectual shortcomings, it is surprising that he recognizes the name. . . . The vulgarity of Grayson’s brief congressional career validates the axiom that there is unseemly exposure of mind as well as of body. Concerning his nonstop anger, whether real or feigned, remember: ‘Anger is not an argument.’ So said Sen. Daniel Webster (1782-1852).”
