Failed congressional candidate Missy Smith challenged Eleanor Holmes Norton for D.C.'s non-voting seat in the House of Representatives this year for the sole purpose of putting aborted fetuses on television. With the help of anti-abortion crusader and "campaign manager" Randall Terry, Smith received a whopping 6 percent of the vote. The pair are already plotting their next fetus-based campaign—and have delivered a list of "demands" to House leadership.
According to a press release, Terry and Smith planned to meet at Union Station Irish pub The Dubliner from 10 to 11 a.m. this morning in order to "outline their plans to recruit candidates for 2012 to run for federal office; candidates who will show aborted babies in their television ads."
Prior to the pub meet-up, Smith and Terry planned to convene outside the Cannon House Office Building to bid Nancy Pelosi "farewell" and urge "Republican staff to get ready for a fight." Then, they were to deliver a list of "demands" to John Boehner's office, even though practically no one voted for them and there is no godly reason to do what they say. Or else!
Here is what they want:
1) Repeal Health Care
2) Failing that, refuse to fund it (since GOP will control Appropriations Committee).
3) Defund Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest killer of children. Boehner is Catholic; he must obey his faith and serve his God; he is ethically bound to fight against Planned Parenthood, and defend unborn babies. The easiest step he can take is to defund Planned Parenthood.
Terry and Smith also planned to visit the office of Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, who believes that the "unborn child has a fundamental right to life that cannot be infringed," and urge him to challenge Boehner for the Speaker seat. "In his speech at his reelection, on Tuesday, November 2nd, Representative John Boehner failed to mention the Tea Party even once," Terry said in the release. "[H]e is part of the reason why the U.S. is both morally and financially marooned." Yes, a much better way to spend America's money would be on graphic fetus commercials that are almost universally reviled and guaranteed not to result in political victory. See you in 2012!
