The Lyrics

The undoubted low point of this year's extremely nasty midterm election (at least until Carl Paladino's meltdown and Gloria Allred's drive-by hit job on Meg Whitman) was provided by (who else) Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida. Grayson's opponent Daniel Webster (not THE Daniel Webster) gave a speech for a Christian gathering in which he quoted a verse with which he doesn't agree (Ephesians 5:22 - Wives, submit to your husbands....). Grayson clipped the opposite meaning words (Submit to me!) and used it to accuse Webster of being extremely anti-women on such issues as divorce, alimony, and abortion. Defending the ad in which Webster is called Taliban Dan, Grayson told reporters "the words aren't important". The tone and tactics of the ad wins this year's medal of dishonor, especially coming from such a person as Grayson (who President Obama calls an "outstanding congressman").

Taliban Dan (Like in Iran?)
Taliban Dan (Afghanistan?)

In this election fall (Taliban Dan - so it began)
I thought I'd seen it all! (Taliban Dan - Grayson's great plan)
In Florida's Congress race - they've found the lowest place.
It's a pure disgrace.
Taliban Dan (Anti - wo-man?)
Taliban Dan (He's not Lo-han)

Grayson took Webster's speech (Taliban Dan - it's in the can)
Clipped it to a hateful preach (Taliban Dan - Grayson's no man)
Dan's words Alan misconstrued - the re-sult was worse than crude.
Was it ineptitude?
Taliban Dan (Spot Grayson ran)
Taliban Dan (Spot they should ban)

It's not Grayson's first time (Taliban Dan - I'm no Al fan!)
To in-dulge in this slime, (Taliban Dan - Grayson I pan!)
For his campaign tactics are nothing but swill.
His rantings and ravings on Capitol Hill
Give Chris Matthews a thrill!
Taliban Dan (Where is C-SPAN?)
Taliban Dan (Al's like the Klan!)
I call the Florida Eighth District race the Stephen Vincent Benet Election...The Devil And Daniel Webster! If I'm going to get one-bombed no matter what I write, I might as well go down with guns! ;D
