Deep Thoughts with Skip Carlson

This is going to be our big local battle. The guy is teaparty deluxe, and the GOP is dumping big money into the race. If nothing else, check out the video in the article. It's quite "special". . .

(He usually has a giant cross pinned to the front of his hat, interesting that he chose to dispense with it for the photo.)

Words are failing. . .

This showed up on my facebook page. It's probably one of the most inane things I've ever had the misfortune to read. That said, how do I possibly respond to it in a fashion that's comprehensible to the person who posted the thing? Ye gods.

Buck: Romney, Obama both have reasons not to release information

This is an interview with Ken "I don't wear high heels" Buck, erstwhile failed candidate for US Senate and sadly still our DA. Here he demonstrates how lucky we are to have prevented his vaccuous presence in DC


Buck said although Obama has been open with his tax records, he’s gotten a pass when it comes to releasing other information.

“The Obama administration has gotten away with a lot because of their cozy relationship with the media,” he said. “They haven’t released school records. They haven’t released all kinds of things that would give the other side some ammunition.”



Why, yes, Mr. Buck -- tax returns and report cards are absolute equivalents. Gah.

Message to Aurora

The local Denver news was covering the events in Aurora this morning. One of the pictures they showed was of a large yellow banner placed at the site. As is common with such banners, there are dozens of signatures and messages. What grabbed my heart was the larger lettering: From the Columbine community, with love.

(My apologies for not having a picture of the banner. I was switching back and forth between channels, and don't remember which station showed it; I'll keep looking.)

The Westboro Church plans to picket the Aurora shooting memorial service

Once again the Westboro Baptist Church an anti-semitic, anti-military, group is planning a trip to Colorado to spread their messages of hate according to their twitter feed yesterday July 20, 2012. Fred Phelps Jr. started posting on his Twitter account yesterday with messages like:

‏@WBCFredJr - Only 500 miles to WBC Aurora picket. #GodCursesUForFagMarriage #WorseAndMoreOnTheWay #WBCToldU #GodisAmericasTerrorist #ObeyToday Too fun!

WBC gassing up vehicles for Colorado super-picket. #WorseOnTheWay #FearGodFools #GodCursesUForIdolatry #FaceOfGodsWrath #fagsrunmilitary

Help us fight voter suppression efforts

Well, I was going to add the second to my earlier post, but photobucket has apparently decided to remove the image that I do, in fact, own. Whatever. That said, please feel free to download and share where appropriate, to help us fight back against our teabagger secretary of state (Colorado). And thanks for doing so!
