Tancredo, Woods, etc., remain talk-radio heroes, no matter what’s happening in the real world

(Let's set reality aside for a moment – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

POLS UPDATE: Apropos to the original post, here's a flyer circulating for a Laura Woods event hosted by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, who seems to be throwing down hard in the SD-19 GOP primary against Lang Sias:

Woods Meet and Greet

Come for the meeting, stay for the giveaways! Original post follows.


In the alternative reality constructed each morning on KNUS' Peter Boyles show, they're busy reliving the glory days of the recall campaigns.

Recall spokespeople Laura Woods and Jennifer Kerns have been on the show re-telling stories about how "grassroots" Republicans fought off establishment Republicans and won.

One of Boyles' favorite things to do is to point out that most of the Republicans who've risen up in recent weeks weren't the ones getting down and dirty during the recall effort.

On Tuesday, for example, Boyles asks Woods for the names of specific Republican candidates and elected officials who were with her:

Woods: Well, I just want to preface by saying, as a candidate [for SD 19] now, I’m not endorsing these guys, but I’ll put on my recall hat and I’ll talk to you about who was out there on the lines with us. We clearly had Victor Head. He wasn’t a candidate then, but he is now. And then we had senator candidates Tim Neville and Tony Sanchez walking the streets, knocking doors, gathering petition signatures. Tom Tancredo was out there, as was Greg Brophy. We had the sheriff candidates, Jim Shires, Jeff Schrader, John Berry, all out there at times. Ken Buck was in the office at times. And Owen Hill was sitting in our office making phone calls. So, there were a lot of candidates, none of whom were involved in this back room deal—other than Ken Buck to move, you know, from the Senate race to the House race.

The good old recall days are gone, and the good old folks are threatened, in Boyle's mind, by back-room-dealing evil-doers, like Bob Beauprez, Cory Gardner, and Ryan Call.

But on Boyles' radio show, regardless of what's happening in the real world, the heroes are still Woods and Tancredo, and the like, and nothing can change that, unless the show is abruptly canceled by Salem Communications Inc., which is as inevitable as a gaffe from you know who. Or someone flipping the bird at you.

    The fact that the lefties at Colorado Pols are the ones calling attention to the "talk radio crazies" should tell sane Republicans everything they need to know. Listen to Dick Wadhams, I implore you, while you still can.

    Lang Sias can win. Scott Gessler can win. The talk radio crowd's candidates can't win.

    All of those "grassroots" politicians who walked the streets and waved signs during the Hudak recall are funded extensively by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners SuperPAC.

    These people have no idea how negatively their imagery and statements come across to average Americans. Take RMGO and its aggressive, fear-inspiring AR-15 logo, for example. They could have a hunting rifle or shotgun on their logo and it'd be a lot less off-putting to Coloradans who will always associate the RMGO's weapon of choice with Columbine and other mass murders. But RMGO doesn't care. They're politically clueless.

    Same with their inane ammo and weaponry giveaways. About the only way they could come off as more angry and aggressive to average Americans would be if they were raffling off cop-killer bullets and silencers.
