Alan Grayson as a parrot? Obama as a slave ship captain? Children as slaves? (I thought they were supposed to be janitors?) Alan Grayson always seems to end up in districts with true wingnut opponents and this cycle is no different.

Via The Church Report:

Featuring the "USS Obamaboat," the animated ad urges voters to “turn this ship around” and criticizes Obama's levels of government spending, including bank bailouts, healthcare and a loan to the failed solar company Solyndra.

Children rowing the USS Obamaboat are told to “Earn! Earn! Earn! Don’t you care about the banks? Don’t you care about the 99 percent?”

A woman in a bathtub on deck says, “This ship stimulated my husband’s solar company” and is then handed money by a man in an adjacent bathtub.

This ticked me off enough to make a donation to Alan Grayson's campaign. Join me?

Can you help us out?
