Poor Marilyn Musgrave. She's been sent off to the wilderness with the rest of the GOP -- but she's not done embarrassing herself or her party. According to Politico, the former Republican Rep. has now joined forces with a right wing, anti-choice organization called The Susan B. Anthony List and she's out to reclaim seats for Republican candidates by attacking what she calls "the worst liberals in Congress."
She recently sent out a tersely worded, stunning four-page (four-page!) missive reeking of bitterness, with underlined sentences, paragraphs in bold and even a postscript from the letterhead of “Congressman Marilyn Musgrave” announcing her latest campaign: the Votes Have Consequences grass-roots project that aims to “expose pro-abortion politicians.”
She mentions several times that people have spent a vast amount of money (“roughly $18 million”) to eject her from her seat. She quotes the Bible: “The truth shall set you free.” She then asks people to donate any denomination of money ($25 to $5,000) so that they can “spread the truth about [liberals’] 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 Nov. 2, 2010, we will take their jobs away from them.” Read on...
Obviously, Musgrave lands on the Cheney/Limbaugh side of the GOP, but the article also touches on the growing civil war raging within the dying political party:
She even sneaks in a dig at the RNC. She adds in the letter that she wants to “attack liberal candidates who deserve to be attacked and to defend conservatives when the Republican National Committee is nowhere to be found.”
