Wait, did anyone else catch that?

Buried in the Texas throwdown was a gem from CD2E. Marilyn Musgrave has been endorsed by the KKK. This really deserves its own post.

It turns out the story is true, even though the Musgrave campaign denies the authenticity of the website in question. Let’s see, she sponsored all kinds of hateful anti-immigrant, anti-gay and anti-anything that does not advance rich white Christians while she was in Colorado’s Legislature. And, does anyone remember that little “incident” right after 9-11 when she accidentally left purse with her concealed hand gun in it on the floor of the House, causing an evacuation of the entire Capitol? Hateful, gun-toting, white Christian. Sounds about right for the KKK.

Now I’m sure that the Musgrave campaign is hating this endorsement. It reminds me of one of my favorite childhood songs, from Free to Be You and Me (yep, my parents were freedom-hating socialist hippies), entitled “Helping”. Here it is:

ARTIST: Shel Silverstein
TITLE: Helping

Agatha Fry, she made a pie
And Christopher John helped bake it
Christopher John, he mowed the lawn
And Agatha Fry helped rake it

Now, Zachary Zugg took out the rug
And Jennifer Joy helped shake it
Then Jennifer Joy, she made a toy
And Zachary Zugg helped break it

And some kind of help is the kind of help
That helping's all about
And some kind of help is the kind of help
We all can do without

Don’t you just love Shel Silverstein.
