This is a very close race...just trying to see where we stand on the reelection prospects on the bravest Congressman on this Hill.

I think it would be interesting electing someone to the house who sports  Taliban attire for starters. It would be even cooler if Dan were a woman, so her face could have been totally covered when she spoke before the C-SPAN cameras.

By the way, if Dan is Taliban, since the gravamen of the nasty one's charge is that Dan believes in the Bible (I don't think there is anything more there other than making Dan's telling guys to chill on the obey thing, his active embracing of that Biblical stricture, which by the way, is still incanted at many weddings), I guess that makes Bible believers co-extensive with the Taliban, right?

Grayson is a disgusting piece of trash.

Didn't your state already do that? Wink

Lol, the Grayson love from the left is crazy. I'd much rather have somebody like Tom Perrielo win than Alan Grayson, unfortunately they're both going to lose but still.


Oh, and Grayson has very little chance of winning after his last few ads Miles.

edit: If I was voting I'd still support Grayson of course..

I will say that if the left loves Grayson so much, they have absolutely no right to criticize Michelle Bachmann.

Grayson very much could win. It's a pure tossup.

I'd probably would leave it blank. None of them appeal to me.

Grayson isn't an idiot though. Grayson knows what he is doing policy wise and understands the issues, he just enjoys trolling. I dislike his style immensely but he went to Harvard and is intelligent.

Nope, Grayson done.
The "Taliban" Dan ad was the nail in the coffin.

He shot himself in the foot with his more recent ads, not that he was favored to begin with.

Given the lack of a Libertarian, I would probably vote for Taliban Dan Grin

Yep he's a goner. Although I'm not in fl-8 (I'm in fl-24, kosmas' district), central fla is swinging hard right this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see both of them lose by double digits.
