What the hell were Coloradoans thinking when they elected this pinhead? He’s a moron.
They were thinking they don’t want their guns anymore, and they are morons too.
Look at a county-level election map and you’ll have your answer. Urbanites and those living in a few liberal utopias have started to outnumber the other 90% of the area of the state. (Thanks, California!)
We had an absolute disaster here in 2010. The official pubbie candidate turned out to have “padded” his resiume beyond all reality. I think he got 9%. Tom Tancredo jumped in at the last moment, but too little, too late, too zany. Jane Norton refused to run through the caucus, thus forcing Ken buck into a damaging, long,and expensive primary that she lost after the damage was done so numbnut Bennett won by ~4%. In short, a complete meltdown that we have not recobvered from yet.
Tom Tancredo came within a few points of beating him running on the Constitution party ticket. The goofball republican Dan Maes only got 10% of the "can't vote for anybody but the R" types.
Tom Tancredo was an excellent 3 term congresscritter in case you don't remember him. He ran for president in 08 too.
