| I'd like to thank, once again, Colorado's Republican caucusers (sp?) for picking the losing candidate in their recent presidential vote. Rick Santorum was never going to win the presidential election, but by picking the most far-right candidate they helped push their party further into Wackville and forced the eventual winner, Willard (Not the Rat) Mitt (Not Tagg) Romney to both abuse and take the abuse of the ever-present, gelatinous Santorum. Google that, political junkies!
Last time, when the (R)'s picked Mitt, he dropped out 2 days later. This time, Rick gave them a few more days of self-satisfied harrumphing before accepting the inevitable.
I'd also like to remind Colorado Democrats, and John Hickenlooper, that the Old School views of Rick Santorum are very close to the true views of our favorite Republicans and very far from the common sense views of most Coloradans. And if Jared Polis and Michael Bennet can get on board the President's side in stressing the need for millionaires like themselves to pay a fairer amount of taxes, we might actually build some electoral synergy over the next few months.
Much of this is obvious, I know, but bears repeating until the key players on our side buy a clue....
