Republicans: Sore Losers, Man


Some Republicans are in a really severe state of denial about the ass-kicking they just received Great Repudiation. To wit, Colorado's Marilyn Musgrave:

Bitterness generated by the bruising battle between Betsy Markey and Marilyn Musgrave apparently lingers days after voters decided the winner of the 4th Congressional District.

Incumbent Republican Musgrave, who lost to Democrat Markey by a 56 to 44 percent margin Tuesday, has yet to call and congratulate Markey on her win.

Musgrave also hasn't conceded the race, said Markey spokesman Ben Marter. "She has yet to admit defeat," he said. "It's a little bizarre."

Calls to Musgrave's campaign and congressional office went unanswered Friday.

Ah yes, we remember Musgrave well: She was one of the co-sponsors of a Federal Marriage Amendment, and once declared that gay marriage "is the most important issue that we face today."

Musgrave's residence on Planet Bizarro appears to be permanent.
