Virtual war: Palin v. Grayson

Sarah's twitter endorsement of Florida's Daniel Webster on Tuesday apparently hit a nerve with his opponent, Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson

The twitter comment that sparked the battle between Sarah and Grayson started when Sarah posted this: "FL's Daniel Webster - keep moving forward w/positive,strong,sharp message of truth! (As opposed to opponent who disgraced himself w/that ad)". The ad she is referring to is one the Grayson campaign aired last week grossly misrepresenting comments Webster had made to his constituents regarding his stand on scripture. I'm not sure I've ever heard a more dishonest ad, and clearly, Grayson could care less. That's just how he rolls. 

Grayson responded to Sarah, not defending his ad, but rather attacking her with this comment: "What is it about Palin and Twitter? Is it that 140 characters represents the maximum length of Palin's attention span?" and this link attached. (where he continues the attack, not on substance...nope, just name calling)

Sarah responded twice more: "Grayson's twisted campaign ad adds to 'media distrust' problem; he blatantly lies in vile rant, but greedy media run it anyway w/no fact check," and "Florida deserves the best! No need 2 settle 4 such an odd, troubled character 2 represent your beautiful state. Take pride in Daniel Webster." 

Funny. Grayson responds just like a wounded animal would respond when he fears for his life...clearly, he sees her as a threat to his political life and can't muster up enough sanity to respond in a more civil manner. 

It's OK. He'll be rendered irrelevant soon enough. Meanwhile, want to support Daniel Webster? Please do. You can donate to his campaign by following this link
