Palin is a ‘half-baked Alaskan’, says Florida lawmaker

Sarah Palin Florida (US), Oct. 2 (ANI): Florida Representative Alan Grayson has described former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin as a “half-baked Alaskan”.

In a rambling, pop-culture-laden new fundraising appeal out Thursday morning, Grayson slammed Palin over her new endorsement of his GOP foe, Daniel Webster on her Twitter account. “What is it about Sarah Palin and Twitter?” Grayson writes. “Is Palin fond of tweeting because she can draft a tweet on her palm? Is it that 140 characters represents the maximum length of Sarah Palin’s attention span?”

Grayson also claims that Palin is targeting him “like she was shooting a moose from a helicopter,” and manages to work in references to William Shatner and Conan O’Brien.

Grayson’s appeal is the latest in a string of provocative campaign pleas targeting Webster, his GOP opponent, as well as national Republicans.

The freshman Democrat targets everyone from Palin to Fox News to former Vice President Dick Cheney on his campaign website.

Palin announced her support for Webster on her Twitter page late Wednesday, and excoriated Grayson for his controversial ad depicting Webster as anti-women and calling him “Taliban Dan Webster.”

The ad has been widely criticized for its use of deceptive editing, making Webster appear to suggest wives should submit to their husbands.

Webster campaign manager Brian Graham called Grayson’s appeal “immature,” but declined to comment further.

According to Politico, Grayson has raised a mammoth 3.7 million dollars so far this cycle, while Webster has taken in over 313,000 dollars. (ANI)
