Admittedly, this is a tough political ad. But, it's funny, when Republicans attack Democrats and liberals for being un-American, or communists, or socialists, or Marxists or secret Muslims, no one says anything. They are simply not criticized, or the right says it never happened. So, if Rep. Alan Grayson has to get tough with his wingnut opponent by pointing out the similarities between the American religious right and the Taliban, so be it. This is a battle for the future of America, and tough talk is sometimes necessary.
The liberal handwringing over the ad is ridiculous. I expect the right to get angry - they are hypocrites and will simply not see the obvious correlation between what they do and this ad. But for the left to whine about it "going too far"? Grow a fuckin' pair! This is a battle with extremists, and extreme measures sometimes need to be taken.
