Alan Grayson's "Taliban Dan" ad qualifies as hyperbolic rhetoric, and the media treats Sarah Palin's Boo-Gate like a national scandal. (5:02)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK.

YOU KNOW --

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WE OFTEN TALK ABOUT THE HYPER

BOLLIC RHETORIC IN THE PUBLIC

SWEAR AND HOW IT MAY NOT SERVE

IN THE BEST INTEREST OF GETTING

(bleep) DONE.

BUT HOW WOULD YOU RECOGNIZE THIS

TYPE OF RHETORIC?

IS IT AS JUSTICE OLIVER WENDELL

HOLMES SAID OF OBSCENEITY, THAT

WHICH GIVES YOU WOOD?

[LAUGHTER]

PARAPHRASI

PARAPHRASI

PARAPHRASI

[LAUGHTER]

HERE IS SOMETHING THAT MAY

QUALIFY.

IT'S THE LATEST CAMPAIGN AD FROM

FLORIDA DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN

AND BATMAN WARD ALAN GRAYSON.

>> DANIEL WARD WANTS TO FORCE

THAT ON US.

>> SHE SHOULD SUBMIT TO ME.

>> TAL DAN WEBSTER.

HANDS OFF OUR BODIES AND OUR

LAWS.

>> Jon: TALIBAN DAN --?

YOUR OPPONENT IN THE EIGHTH

CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF

FLORIDA SAY FUNDAMENTAL

RELIGIOUS ZEALOT THAT BEHEADS

AND BEFOOTS AND BEHANDS AND

BEGENITALS AND PERHAPS BEDAZZLES

ALL OF THOSE WHO WOULD DISAGREE

WITH HIS MEDIEVAL WORLD VIEW AND

SECOND ALL, TALIBAN DAN, AREN'T

YOU GOING TO BE SUED BY THE

RESTAURANT CHAIN?

[LAUGHTER]

BY THE WAY, THEIR GO-TACHOS ARE

EXCELLENT TO.

BE FAIR TO CONGRESSMAN GRAYSON

THIS SUBMIT TO ME QUOTING THE

FWIEBL JUSTIFY OPPRESSING WOMEN

IS PRETTY -- THE BIBLE TO

JUSTIFY OPPRESSING WOMEN IS

AWFUL.

>> I HAVE VERSES TOUR MY WIFE.

DON'T -- VERSES FOR MY WIFE.

DON'T PICK THE ONES THAT SAY SHE

SHOULD SUBMIT TO ME.

THAT'S IN THE BIBLE.

PICK THE ONES YOU ARE SUPPOSED

TO DO.

SO INSTEAD THAT YOU LOVE YOUR

WIFE.

>> Jon: OH, I'M MISSION THE

ENTIRE -- MISSING THE ENTIRE

CONTEXT.

IN FACT, HE SAID THE OPPOSITE.

THERE'S AN EXAMPLE OF A

CANDIDATE WHOSE LEGISLATIVE

PRIORITIES YOU MAY AGREE WITH

BUT WOULD PREFER THAT HE WIN THE

DAY THROUGH THE SUPERIORITY OF

HIS IDEAS AAS OPPOSED TO THE

SUPERIORITY OF HIS EDITING.

THERE'S A KIND OF THING THAT

RAISES THE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

ISSUES OF DAY AND THE MOST

POWERFUL POLITICAL FIGURES OF

THIS COUNTY.

QUESTIONS LIKE?

>> WAS SARAH PALIN BOOED OR NOT

INTRODUCED ON DANCING WITH

STARS.

>> Jon: WHAT SNOW WHO CARES?

>> PEOPLE WONDERED WONDERED IF SARAH

PALIN WAS GETTING BOOED.

>> SARAH PALIN WAS PWAOD.

>> WAS SHE BOOED BY THE

AUDIENCE?

>> WAS SARAH PALIN BOOED?

>> Jon: WHO, WHO, WHO GIVES A

(bleep)?

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

WHO GIVES A (bleep)?

WHAT DIFFERENCE DID IT MAKE?

DO YOU THINK SHE'S A POLARIZING

FIGURE?

YES, THIS FINALLY PUTS TO REST

THE QUESTION OF WHETHER OR NOT

SOMEONE IN THE AUDIENCE OF

DANCING WITH THE STARS

DISAPPROVES WITH SARAH PALIN.

COMING UP NEXT ANECDOTAL

EVIDENCE EXSTRAP LATE ABLE OR

MEANINGLESSFUL.

THE MEDIA IS TREATING THIS LIKE

IT'S A NATIONAL SCANDAL.

WE'RE CALLING IT BOO GATE.

[ APPLAUSE ]

>> Jon: DON'T MAKE ME

SYMPATHIZE WITH HER.

[LAUGHTER]

DON'T.

I SAY IT'S TIME WE FIGHT BACK

AGAINST THE OUTRAGEOUS

DISTORTIONS AND MEANINGLESS

DISTRACTIONS.

RALLY TO RESTORE SANITY ON THE

NATIONAL MALL ON OCTOBER OWE --

30.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

COME TO THE RALLY TO RESTORE

SANITY.

THERE WAS A STARTLING

ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT HOW SOME

PEOPLE IN NEW YORK CAN GET

THERE.

>> COME TO THE HAD YOU EVERRING

PARK 560 BROADWAY IN SOHO THE

BUS WILL BE THERE.

WE'LL TAKE YOU WITH US.

WE HAVE AS MANY BUSES AS THERE

ARE PEOPLE TO FILL THEM.

THAT'S OUR PROMISE.

>> Jon: OH, MY GOD ARREST

RIHANNA HUFFINGTON OPRAHED THE

BUSES.

DARLING, YOU GET A BUS.

EVERYBODY GETS A BUS.

EVERYBODY GETS A BUS!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

BY THE WAY -- I HOPE THAT HER

ANNOUNCEMENT WAS REAL AND NOT

HUFFINGTON POST IT'S NOT ACTUAL

TRANSPORTATION IT'S NOT JUST

EMBEDDING A LINK TO GREYHOUND.

I HOPE THEY ARE NOT -- FUR

ATTENDING STEPHEN COLBERT'S

MARCH TO KEEP FEAR ALIVE I HEARD

THE DRUDGE REPORT IS PROVIDING

TRANSPORTATION WITH THE MOTOR

COACH OF TERROR.
