They Said It

  • 1 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Our friends at National Journal have put together a comprehensive list of quotable quotes from the 2010 election cycle, and we shouldn’t have to tell you that several Colorado politicos made the cut for good or ill–H/T to the Colorado Independent:

“Those minority folks were absolutely at the rally. We were just simply moving around random people for aesthetic reasons.” – Spokesman Roy Teicher, on ex-CO Speaker Andrew Romanoff’s (D) camp “digitally altering” their website’s banner photo, Denver Post, 4/15.

“The only time I’m reminded of Washington is when you and I are debating.” – Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO), responding during a debate to ex-state Speaker Andrew Romanoff (D), Denver Post, 4/25.

“So I suppose next week they’ll take another poll and ask, would you be less likely to vote for Andrew Romanoff if you found he was biting the heads off of squirrels?” – CO SEN’s Andrew Romanoff (D), on push polls, Colorado Statesman, 7/30).

“Tonight is a celebration, but there is an 800-pound gorilla in the room we must address. Mr. Tancredo, stop your campaign tonight!” – CO GOP GOV nominee Dan Maes, Denver Post, 8/11

“Somebody should talk to Dan, because I think he’s the third-party candidate now” – Ex-Rep. Tom Tancredo, on Dan Maes, Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, 8/12

A few others in this list, including Ken Salazar’s praise for a geologist’s (John Hickenlooper) political prospects on the Western Slope, and Ken Buck’s observation that now-Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan “hung out in the library” while Buck didn’t–in retrospect, this may not have cast Buck in the most scholarly light. But we were a little surprised that Tom Tancredo’s characterization of President Barack Obama as a greater threat to America than nuclear war at a Ken Buck rally, followed by Buck and Buck’s primary opponent Jane Norton tripping over each other to out-agree with him, didn’t make the list. That was about as quotable as it gets.

On the other hand, they obviously had to include Nevada’s Sharron Angle, and whether those Latino kids actually look “more Asian.” We admit there was an abundance of riches this year.
