Uh-Oh. There's a Disturbance in the Farce*

*Hattip: EH & GN

Last Friday, Renee Ellmers fired back at her conservative critics in a blog post on her official U.S. House website. Ellmers has been in trouble with the cray-cray crowd over her opposition to the Ban All Abortions After 20 Weeks bill that was supposed to have been passed on Jan. 22, to coincide with the Washington March for Life. Ellmers' opposition seems to have killed the bill at the last minute, and conservatives are pissed. Like, extremely.

So Ellmers took them on: "I am appalled by the abhorrent and childish behaviors from some of the leaders of the outside groups." We suppose she was referring to Tami Fitzgerald, head of the NC Values Coalition, among other paint-strippers on the right like tea-blogger Brant Clifton, who has made biting Ellmers' ankles a personal project practically since she was first elected.

Near the end of her blog post, Ellmers returned to the Tami Fitzgeralds and the Brant Cliftons of this world: "It’s unimaginable to me why some outside parties would seek to target strong, pro-life conservative women and men who are serving in Congress."

Yeah. Go figure.
