    Ken Starr was on C-SPAN this morning whining on behalf of Kavanaugh, man-splaining why you can't always believe accusers. Yes, the same Ken Starr who was forced out at Baylor for not properly addressing a major sex assault scandal.

    Morning has broken, like the first morning.

    And Trump is stinking, like the first turd.

    Praise for birds singing,

    Gag at Trump’s stinking.

    Resistance is growing, all over the world.

    It is important to know who pays for what…

    A series of ads are running on broadcast channels extolling the greatness of T***p and thanking him for making us great again.

    It is paid for by a family of billionaires from Chicago whose PAC is called 45Committee. Expect more…much more.

    Jared Polis announced several policy proposals regarding improving Colorado's healthcare system, including, according to the Denver Post the "ultimate goal" of single-payer.  This really pissed off Stumbleton's Spox Jerrod Dobkin, who demanded full details now!

    Really, I mean how can you have an ultimate goal if you haven't already written in stone every little detail beforehand?  Jeez, Jared, get on it will you?

    In the same article, Stumbleton's team announced they plan to announce their plan for healthcare tomorrow. 

    A quick summary: 

    If you are already f*cked, you'll stay f*cked.

    If you aren't f*cked yet, just wait, we'll get to you soon…

    Colorado media outlets are thrilled with any boost to their advertising revenues and Democratic leaders have to like the assessment.  According to Washington Post [my emphasis],

    The liberal group Demand Justice said it would spend $700,000 on ads focused on the accusation from Christine Blasey Ford, who said Monday she would be willing to testify before Congress….. 

    Demand Justice said its new campaign will focus on the home states of two moderate Republican senators — Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska — and on Colorado and Nevada, Democratic-leaning swing states whose Republican senators are facing tough reelection battles in 2018 and 2020.

    And the upstart Colorado Sun came up with this little nugget:

    Hickenlooper forms leadership PAC — a step closer to possible 2020 presidential bid

    "The term-limited Democrat created a federal leadership PAC called Giddy Up that can collect as much as $5,000 a year from donors — money that he can use to cover his political travel, develop policy proposals and donate to other candidates."

    Hick does whimsy — and builds in a possible promo link to his newish book — “Opposite of Woe.”

    If you find yourself downtown on Friday and have a yearning for a MAGA NAFTA burger, stop by! 

    • JohnInDenver says:

      Are they free? At pre-end of NAFTA prices? Pay only the extra costs of the new expected tariffs?

      And will there be a veggie option featuring American plant protein and Mexican (or even better, New Mexican) green chiles?

    Kansas GOP Stalwart picks Democrat Laura Kelly over Kris Kobach 

    A titan of Kansas Republican politics is shunning Kris Kobach, her party’s nominee, in his run for governor. 

    Nancy Kassebaum, who represented Kansas for three terms in the U.S. Senate, said Tuesday she will support Democratic State Sen. Laura Kelly’s campaign.
