(Newser) – Alan Grayson, he of "Die Quickly" fame, is taking an equally, er, unusual approach to dragging his opponent's name through the mud, reports Talking Points Memo. In a new campaign ad, the Florida Democrat compares the stances of patriotically named Daniel Webster to, say, a certain notorious Afghan fundamentalist group, concluding, "Taliban Dan Webster: Hands off our bodies and our laws."

Specifically, Grayson objects to video of Webster quoting a Bible passage about wives submitting to their husbands. Watch the full ad in the gallery. For more of Grayson's shenanigans, click here. For HotAir's outrage over his latest, click here.
