PAC vows to revive civility in politics. Not.

Thursday, October 17th, 2013 at 4:57 pm in Republican politics.

A Nevada-based conservative political action committee on Thursday apologized – well, sort of – for an early-morning fundraising email describing lawmakers who supported the deal to re-open the government and raise the debt ceiling as “a parliament of traitors and whores.”

“These 81 whores curbstomped liberty and defecated on the Constitution yet again tonight,” the Western Representation PAC’s email said, singling out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kent., for special abuse. “Mitch McConnell received his $3 billion of silver to betray the base and the grassroots, via an amendment authored by Lamar Alexander. They’re such sluts for a good porking… It takes $2.9 billion to put Mitch McConnell on his knees before President Obama, whoring himself out and betraying his Kentucky constituents.”

“They will remember this day and rue it, and we will pour forth the fires of your wrath upon their heads… We are coming, and we are never going to stop until we take down every last one of these 81 whores,” the email vowed. “Your donations are history-making ammunition to execute those who spat in your faces tonight with their vote. It’s time to take these whores and traitors out. Donate today, and know that your dollars will rain down like mortars on those who betrayed us tonight in 2014. A season of vengeance is upon us, and it is time for the establishment to reap what it has sown.”

Yowza! Sounds like someone was off their meds.

The email had gone out in the name of PAC cofounder Dustin Stockton. He sent out another email Wednesday afternoon under the subject line “We went too far.”

Dustin Stockton “After seeing some of the crony handouts in the legislative deal yesterday I instructed our team not to pull their punches and portray the rage that we are justifiably feeling over just the latest example of Washington corruption,” Stockton wrote. “Although my name was at the bottom of that email it was not written by me and some of the rhetoric I felt went over the line. I’d like to apologize for that and since it had my name on it, ultimately it is my responsibility and I apologize for some of the more brash rhetoric.”

But delving into notpology territory, Stockton also wrote “the fact is that these politicians who are granted the sacred honor of representing our interests ARE whoring themselves out to lobbyists and special interests.”

“Our team is humbled and honored for the opportunity to dedicate our lives to fighting these evil bastards,” he wrote. “We only succeed when we responsibly represent your voice in our activism and our email earlier stepped over the line. We apologize for that, but not for calling it like we see it.”

Read the entire original email, after the jump…

“The Republican establishment just sold us out. Mitch McConnell received his $3 billion of silver to betray the base and the grassroots, via an amendment authored by Lamar Alexander. They’re such sluts for a good porking, and their explanation strains credulity: we had to spend $3 billion on a dam to make sure the taxpayers didn’t lose $160 million. That’s Washington math at its finest.

“President Obama made one concession: HHS Secretary Kathleen Sibelius will certify that income verification measures are in place to verify eligibility for Obamacare subsidies. That certification will consist of a letter to Congress, and it will be followed by GAO reports that reveal how much of a liar Kathleen Sibelius is. And yes, that’s right: those income verification measures weren’t already in place.

“It takes $2.9 billion to put Mitch McConnell on his knees before President Obama, whoring himself out and betraying his Kentucky constituents. There’s no relief for the good people of Kentucky or their families, who will see their premiums go up and their available providers go down. Their senator didn’t bother to insist that President Obama face the music for his unconstitutional and illegal delay of the employer mandate, or the out of pocket limits, until 2015. There’s good money to be made betting on another delay in 2015.

“This is war. We’re not going to stand by as the whores in Washington betray us and their constituents to send money to their crony sugar daddies, including the pharmaceutical companies who stand to make an estimated $35 billion in profits from Obamacare. We’re not going to stand by while insurance companies charge their policyholders huge premium increases for out of pocket limits that won’t be in place until 2015. We’re going to burn Mitch McConnell and his parliament of whores at the stake in 2014 and 2016. That’s right, we’re coming in multiple election cycles for revenge.

“Washington might not be helping you, or working families, but it’s damn sure taking care of its own. Take recently deceased Senator Frank Lautenberg’s widow, whose worth is $56 million: the Senate made sure she got another $174,000 of your money as a final payout. They did this while you’re struggling to make ends meet, because what’s another $174,000 of somebody else’s money among millionaire politicians and their families?

“These 81 whores curbstomped liberty and defecated on the Constitution yet again tonight. We aren’t going to forget. We’re coming in 2014, and they will hear us coming. They will remember this day and rue it, and we will pour forth the fires of your wrath upon their heads. We’re not running away, and we are not beaten. This is but one battle, and we are turning tonight’s defeat into a historic triumph.

“Every dollar you contribute to us is a bullet aimed at the heart of the status quo in Washington, a bullet aimed at the parliament of whores and traitors who sold you out tonight. While the Senate did not respect our will tonight, they will fear our will in the primaries and they will know our resolve in the general election. We are coming, and we are never going to stop until we take down every last one of these 81 whores.

“You aren’t funding a political campaign. You’re funding a revolution. Your donations are history-making ammunition to execute those who spat in your faces tonight with their vote. It’s time to take these whores and traitors out. Donate today, and know that your dollars will rain down like mortars on those who betrayed us tonight in 2014. A season of vengeance is upon us, and it is time for the establishment to reap what it has sown.”

    Josh, as a wordsmith, what word would you suggest they use other than “whore”. I admit my own distaste at using a word meant to describe a woman honestly exchanging sex for money with a politician who /dishonestly/ exchanges votes for campaign contributions. But I’m not sure what other word conveys this dishonest exchange as well.

    And I ask this in the spirit of non-partisanship. Stark got into trouble for using that word before.

    I’m getting the impression that the guy who wrote this must have been indulging in self-gratification while at the keyboard. Hope he feels better now.
