    Conservative, Corporate, Triangulating, Democrats can, should, and MUST change their ways at all levels. If you’re voting for Citibank you’re voting against Colorado’s citizens. Same if you’re voting for the largest defense budget in the world or for more tax cuts for Jeff Bezos.

    Just don’t do it.

    Trump says he earned an A plus for Hurricane response in Puerto Rico.  What was his real grade?

    A: F.

    B: F minus.

    C:  Trump stinks.  Great God Almighty, Trump stinks!

    D:  All of the above.

    Broccoli screws the pooch yet again: 

    Mistrial declared in case of driver who killed trooper

    Rob McCallum, a spokesman for the Colorado Judicial Branch, confirmed a mistrial had been declared by Judge Shay Whitaker. The judge made the ruling because the prosecution failed to disclose critical information to the defense, Mc-Callum said.

    Inconvenient truths that Trumpidiots don't want to hear:

    The very same politicians who piously declared that America couldn’t afford to spend money supporting jobs in the face of a deep, prolonged slump just rammed through a huge, deficit-explodingtax cut for corporations and the wealthy even though the economy is currently near full employment. No, they haven’t abandoned their commitment to fiscal responsibility; they never cared about deficits in the first place.

    So if you want to understand why the great slump that began in 2008 went on so long, blighting so many American lives, the answer is politics. Specifically, policy failed because cynical, bad-faith Republicans were willing to sacrifice millions of jobs rather than let anything good happen to the economy while a Democrat sat in the White House.

    Another reason we need to toss a bunch of Republicans out of office this November:

    Colorado lawmakers under pressure to act as troubled immigrant driver’s license program approaches another large crossroads

    If they aren't in office, they won't be able to constantly prove how incompetent at governing that they are.

    Koch Brothers plan to spend $1 million to back Stumbleton's campaign to turn Colorado into Kansas

    “He’ll defend TABOR, work to expand educational freedom, and ensure special interests don’t limit our energy sources.”

    Yep, we all want to keep our damn potholes, give our tax money to religious indoctrination camps, and sell off our pristine lands to oil and gas companies!

    Bente Birkland continues her coverage of sexual harassment at the Capitol — she's now working for CPR.

  8. VoyageurVoyageur says:

    Terms of Manafort's deal with Mueller have leaked out.

    Trump and Manafort will go to the same federal prison.  But Manafort gets the lower bunk.

    Trump HATES the higher bunk.

    The shorter Coffman is not happy with the NY Times.

    51-40 and outside the margin of error.

      I think that's why nutteranus was so angry in his posts today.   He is pissed at NYT for that poll.  Should have just polled Republicans.  Since in his opinion, non Republicans should be barred from voting.

    Political cartoon.
