Both Ways Bob: Greatest Lede Ever

“Both Ways” Bob Beauprez (right).

Our hats are off to the Grand Junction Sentinel's Charles Ashby, who kicks off today's story about GOP gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez's visit to Grand Junction yesterday with an inside joke for all of us in the political chattering class:

Gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez is glad the two anti-fracking ballot measures won’t be placed before voters this fall.

But then again, he isn’t. [Pols emphasis]

The rest of the story is worth reading, and we promise to do so right after we stop laughing. Well played, Mr. Ashby.

    I read the article and it is very clear what Both Ways Bob is saying here:

    He is very relieved the two 'anti-fracking' measures are not on the ballot, that would be very bad; and he is extremely disappointed that Hickelooper did not keep the measures on the ballot, which was too bad.

    I am a reader of various blogs, but this item really caught my eye.


    I really can't believe anyone would actually call BWB a "strong candidate"!
