Rep. Grayson and The Weekly Standard’s Continetti in a Perplexing Display of Sparring

The Weekly Standard’s Associate Editor Matthew Continetti appeared on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher” on the show this past weekend. On the panel was the ever outspoken Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), who wore a signature ugly American flag tie. Maher mistakenly called Continetti “Editor” of the magazine. That would be Bill Kristol.

Continetti offered Grayson sideway glances that showed increasing irritation with the lawmaker’s comments. At one point, Grayson began talking about the “exclusive” people in this country — you know, the ones who aren’t inclusive?

Continetti piped up and disagreed (we think): “I think there are fewer exclusive people than they’re are inclusive,” he said.
Maher, looking perplexed, asked, “Wait, fewer?”
Continetti reworded: “I think the majority of most Americans are inclusive, are tolerant.”

The associate editor went on to say that President Obama, during his presidential campaign, successfully projected inclusiveness. “And that’s something the GOP needs to work on,” Continetti opined.
