Musgrave calls out gay, abortionist, gun-grabbing, socialist baby-killers
Not to be outdone by Joe-the-Plumber’s recent rant about not letting “queers” near his children, former U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave has penned a fiery letter promoting her new gig at “Votes Have Consequences.”
“We will spread the truth about their destructive agendas, drag down their approval ratings, force them to publicly defend socialism, authoritarian gun-grabbing, gay marriage, infanticide and everything else they vote for in Washington, and ultimately, on November 2, 2010, we will take their jobs away from them.”
The Coloradoan’s Bob Moore snagged a copy of Musgrave’s letter but unfortunately didn’t link to a scanned version for all to read its resplendent post-election fury.
The excerpts are tempestuous, even for the former congresswoman’s acerbic standards, with a closing grudge-match swipe at national GOP leadership for pulling its support of Musgrave’s flagging campaign with just weeks to go before Election Day:
In the letter, Musgrave said she lost in a landslide to Betsy Markey in 2008 because “the radical homosexual lobby, abortionists, gun-grabbers and all the rest of the extremists finally spent enough money, spread enough lies, and fooled enough voters to defeat me.”
But she found a silver lining. “Now that I’m no longer in Congress, there is truly a feeling of freedom. I’m not shackled by the constraints of the Washington political world or even the Republican Party. I am free. Free to confront the Left directly and continue to stand strong to protect our families, our values and our country against their relentless attack.”
“I’m launching Votes Have Consequences to play a critical role in that fight — to attack liberal candidates who deserve to be attacked, and to defend conservatives when the Republican National Committee is nowhere to be found.”
“Votes Have Consequences” is a tax-exempt, social welfare project of the Susan B. Anthony List, the conservative, antiabortion response to and polar opposite of the better known reproductive rights group, EMILY’s List.
Musgrave’s role is to raise funds to target members of Congress in the 2010 election cycle who support abortion rights. On a March 12 press call announcing the initiative, the Fort Morgan Republican said she would use the same scorched-earth tactics employed against her by the Defenders of Wildlife in the bruising electoral loss to Markey.
She’s a woman of her word.
