Parker Griffith. Wrong for Alabama. Or Not.

So the GOP is thrilled that today, Alabama Democratic congressman Parker Griffith decided to switch to the Republican Party. Score one for their team, but there’s one mild bit of awkwardness left over. When Griffith ran for the seat last year, the same GOP that now loves him embarked on a particularly nasty smear campaign, running an ad that displayed terrorist attacks on America and claiming that as we face a mortal threat, this guy Griffith was running around saying that America’s greatest threat is America itself. But now that everyone’s on the same team, the GOP got to work and pulled the ad it had placed on YouTube. Of course, nothing on the web can be completely erased, and after the jump, we’ll show you just what the Republican Party used to think of its newest congressman.
