    The Faux News house of cards may be tumbling down. O'Reilly was there at the beginning and has been their ratings workhorse. Now with all his blatant lies coming to light (no one checked his work before?) it will be nearly impossible for them to keep pretending they are a "news" organization. And it should be much more easy to dispense with their b.s. from now on.

    Welcome to March, 2015.

    Who is running for CD 6?  tick tock.

    • FrankUnderwood says:

      Aren't you a day early? But you ask a good question……….

    • MADCO says:

      Pretty sure Mike Coffman will run again.

       

      Perhaps Bernie Sanders would consider moving here and showing everyone how to run a winning campaign from the left in CO 6.

      Oh, I know- let's all get behind a green party candidate.  Maybe that guy with the hats in SE Aurora.

      Are there any porn stars in CD6?  That seemed to work in other places.

       

      Romanoff, Miklosi, Flerlage, that other guy, ….some other guy,

      Tancredo, Tancredo, Tancredo, someone else.

      Maybe, and clearly I'm just spitballing here, Tancredo could run again. Or the Dr chaps guy.  The pedophile drug dealing former sheriff?  Perhaps the center and left should stop thinking about getting a good D and just focus on getting a crazy R. Crazier.

       

       

      • BlueCat says:

        Crazier R wouldn't have worked in old CD6 but just might in the new one. Not a bad idea.

      • FrankUnderwood says:

        Coffman may not run in CD 6 again. He is going to be under extreme pressure to run against Bennet since he (or his wife) is really the only viable candidate the GOP has. I know Tipton is making noises but Coffman’s wins against seriously funded candidates in a competitive district makes him the GOP’s best shot against Bennnet.

        • BlueCat says:

          In a presidential year, it's quite likely that, under such a scenario, Bennet could pull out a win and Coffman's vacant seat could finally be won a Dem with a clue. Then maybe a Dem prez could appoint Bennet to something and Hick could appoint Romanoff to the Senate. In this particular fairy tale scenario everybody, deluded Romanoff supporters who think he's a liberal champion and the sensible wing of the party, who know he's a centrist and are fine with that for viability in Colorado, are all happy. The hopeless campaigner gets to be a Senator without having to run a campaign until it's time to do so as an incumbent, hugs all round. Romanoff does his usual good job once actually in office, setting himself up to keep the seat and Everybody lives happily ever after. A unicorn in every back yard.

        • MADCO says:

          It's Buck (pedal) for the rematch.  Tipon? Whos' that?

           

          Buck has some statewide name recognition, he'll have been in the House for 10 minutes and the 4th is safer than the 6th for the GOTP.

          The only thing I've never understood is which office holders can run for some other office and not give up their current seat and which have to quit?  Is it just a function of not being on the ballot in more than one race?

          Senator Coffman. wow – well by then the VA med center will have opened, he'll get to claim ownership of the success.  I guess you could be correct.  I know Bennet has already started – when do Rs normally get cranked up for a Senate race?  (Not conting the last minute screwyourfriends musical chairs)

    How exciting! The GOP House passed a seven (7) days funign bill for the DHS on a vote of 357 to 60! To celebrate thsi amazing legislative achievement, (I wouldn't be surprised if they gave themselves a week long recess to go home and fundarise.)  Amazingly, 183 of the "yes" votes came from Republicans including Scott Tipton and Ken Buck. Stillborn was amongst the 60 voting "no." Mike Coffman did not vote.

    I'm guessing next Friday we go through this again.
