Clearly, Alan Grayson is no longer useful to the left and has become a constant source of embarrassment.
Yesterday, he was taken to the woodshed for his dishonest Taliban Dan ad by none other than MSNBC’s lib shrill, Contessa Brewer. And former Journolister, Ben Smith of the Politico humiliated Grayson further by detecting the amazing similarity between his shudder-inducing “Let it Shine” ad, and an Eliot Spitzer ad from 2006. He sent the Grayson video to adman Jimmy Siegel, who made the Eliot Spitzer ad, for comment.
Siegel emailed back:
Can I sue for plagarism?
And to add insult to injury, they did a lousy job.
Be great if you wrote a column saying that you’re not allowed to shamelessly copy things in other mediums, but for some reason some media consultants have no shame. They should pay me the media buy.
Here’s the Spitzer ad:
Here’s Grayson’s ad in case you haven’t seen it (gag warning):
Never mind the apparent plagiarism. Who the hell thought it a good idea to assault peoples’ senses with images of the Geico caveman frolicking with children on the playground?
Hot Air: Justice: Webster up 7 over Grayson
Potluck: Women detest him
