Oh So [UN]Classy


Bitter much?

[Marilyn] Musgrave, a Republican who’s been representing Colorado’s 4th District since 2002, became part of the Republican Casualty List when she lost in a landslide, even after the National Republican Congressional Committee doled out almost a million bucks (reportedly $900,000) for her campaign.

Two weeks after the brutal loss, Musgrave still hasn’t called her opponent to concede or to congratulate the victor, as is not only textbook but also mannerly to do.

Moreover, Musgrave’s ill manners bleed into her own team. Rumor has it she still — 14 days later — hasn’t even thanked her campaign staff. (Again, textbook.)

Musgrave press secretary Joseph Brettell tells us: “It’s a campaign matter, and I have no further comment.”

Ah, yes, stay classy, Marilyn.

Musgrave is an uber-conservative Republican who was largely responsible for the anti-gay Federal Marriage Amendment in the US House of Representatives. She’s got a whole lotta hate and not too much love, it appears. Such a good “Christian”.

I’m just sayin’…
