  1. of the laptop from Gov. Ritter’s former campaign manager was obviously orchestrated by agents of OPEC working through Romania (ht Mike Boyles) to ensure the lack of energy exploration in Colorado and thus run up even higher oil prices.

      1. No need to wonder since we all know that rule was enforced by the first lady of last family with (partially) resided in the house. Do you really want to go down this road?

    1. …usually have a few kernels of genius or truth in them. Sadly, the mountain of irrational shit usually makes them difficult to see.

      1. “Democrats are on the precipice of securing their reputation as the Chamberlains of our time. In fact, today’s appeasers are worse than Neville Chamberlain : Chamberlain didn’t have himself as an example.” — Ann Coulter

        1. “A half century later, when the only people who call themselves Communists are harmless cranks, it is difficult to grasp the importance of McCarthy’s crusade. But there’s a reason ‘Communist’ now sounds about as threatening as ‘monarchist’ — and it’s not because of intrepid New York Times editorials denouncing McCarthy and praising Harvard educated Soviet spies. McCarthy made it a disgrace to be a Communist. Domestic Communism could never recover.”

          — Ann Coulter

        2. …to quote Ann Coulter is beyond absurd.  She has you cons conned; throws you her red meat and takes your money to the bank.  

          Wanting to get out of Iraq is not appeasement and to suggest that it is shows a decided bias or a decided inability to be rational.  

        3. Hint: watch that video of Chris Matthews taking apart that right wing shock jock on the issue. It’s made quite clear there. Don’t be a dupe of the pundits you agree with.

  2.    Chris Cillizza lists the 10 U.S. Senate seats most likely to flip this election cycle.

      This week, Colorado moved up from the fourth most like to the third, thanks to Bob Schaffer’s adventures on the Marianas Islands.  No mention was made of the confusion between Mt. McKinley and Pike’s Peak.

      Unless something really awful comes out about Bob (something of the maginitude of a Vito Fosella, David Vitter or a Larry Craig-type scandal), the Colorado race will probably go no higher than third most likely to flip, because the Dems running in N.M. and VA are running away with those races w/ 20% leads in the polls.

  3. “In essence that is what these well pads are doing is creating wildlife habitat,” Mesa County Commissioner (and oil and gas consulting company owner) Craig Meis  



  4. http://tpmelectioncentral.talk

    John McCain sees a silver lining in negotiating with terrorists.  

    In fact, McCain was saying very much the same thing two years ago — and it was about Hamas, a group Obama hasn’t proposed dealing with, but one that McCain has nevertheless gone out of his way to associate with Obama.

    Jamie Rubin writes this morning that he interviewed McCain after Hamas won the Palestinian elections, and asked whether American diplomats should work with the new government.

  5. Those two Wills are just plain dumb.

    Today in the Post Armstrong’s campaign manager realizing how dumb the guy is spoke for him.

    Usually Shafroth also hides behind his campaign manager. How dumb can that guy Shafroth be? Accusing an opponent of stealing his e-mail list. How childish. Or accusing him of violating the same rules he was violating.

    No doubt about it Will and Will dumb and dumber.  

    1. If you really scrutinize Exile on Main Street, you come to the inescapable conclusion that they want ColoradoPols to include CD1 on the Big Line. Whoduthunkit.

      1. Thanks. I’ll let you know. I missed my chance last Saturday at the CD-1 convention, but I’m going to really put some effort into it tomorrow.

        1. I do keep my hair pretty short, but I hate shaving so I probably look more like a lib some days then you do!

          Work hard buddy, I’ll keep my fingers crossed

  6. What a sad bunch of losers you Republicans are. This is sick.

    During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee – who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain – joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

    “That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

    You rethugs really, really don’t get it.  

    1. and no way to spin it as some unthinking joke.

      We are just over a month past the 40th anniversary of the murder of MLK and just short of a month of the 40th anniversary of the murder of RFK.

      There are often unthinking remarks made in political campaigns (and elsewhere) and often there is overreaction, because the remark was just that unthinking and unintentioned, but this is truly beyond the pale.  Huckabee is supposed to be a smart guy and a man of god, this is not something one should expect or accept coming from someone like him.

      I am speechless.

      1. so he doesn’t get to wave off this attempt at a “joke.”

        What I want to know is, did the crowd laugh or were they offended?

        This counts as a real gaffe — not a misstatement, but the inopportune statement of what he was really thinking.

        1. “What I want to know is, did the crowd laugh or were they offended?”

          This is an NRA meeting in Louisville, I am sure they rolling in the aisles.

          You know, sometimes when I watched Hucakabee during the race he said some really intelligent things, and he was the kind of guy you could disagree with on most anything but you still liked him for some reason.  I think this changes that for me.

      2. and then he does this.

        RFK was shot and killed 40 years ago in a race much like this one in a time much like this one.

        I hope he is ashamed and asks for forgiveness.

        And as a christians, I hope Michelle and Barack forgive him. (I think it will be easy for Barack, but hard for Michelle)

        I hope that other politicians remember we are all americans and this kind of talk has no place.

        1. In fact, Kennedy opponents (haters) spoke out and basically said the same thing. IIRC ublic figures outright asked for someone to shoot him….and tragically, someone did. Huckabee should be in jail.

    2. UPDATE, 8:28 PM: Huckabee released the following statement regarding his comments Friday, according to the New York Times website:

      During my speech at the N.R.A., a loud noise backstage, that sounded like a chair falling, distracted the crowd and interrupted my speech. I made an off hand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama. I apologize that my comments were offensive. That was never my intention.
