Note to Republicans #830706219

Charlie horse

Got a dandy, in my side. And I got it from laughing.

Just got home from a performance by "Capitol Steps". What a perfect prelude to the campaign intensity that's going to the routine for the next few weeks. Impressively spot-on timely lyrics to music from "Hair", "Jesus Christ Superstar", and at least a dozen other musicals. Also an utterly delicious riff delivered entirely in Spoonerisms (try "Youble-doo" and his "self-defecating humor".

My absolute fave: the Ginsburg/Sotomayor duet performing "Scalia" (to the tune of 'Maria' from West Side Story).

Thanks, I needed that.

Colorado judge: State political parties can form Super PACs

The Colorado Republican Party won the campaign finance lottery this week when it got the go ahead to form an independent expenditure committee, or Super PAC, from Second District Court Judge Robert McGahey. The ruling means the party can continue operating CORE, a Super PAC designed to “raise and spend unlimited funds to aid in electing Republican candidates.”

McGahey asserted that, because Colorado state law can be interpreted to include political parties as “persons,” the parties have the right, as individuals do, to set up Super PACs in Colorado.

Nonprofit campaign finance watchdog Ethics Watch intervened in the case, which the state was not actively fighting. Ethics Watch argued that no political party, Republican or Democrat, should be able to set up a Super PAC out of concern that the huge influx in campaign spending might make the candidates themselves beholden to contributors by virtue of needing a party’s endorsement to get their name on the ballot. Ethics Watch pointed to a state constitutional amendment voters passed in 2002 prohibiting both corporations and labor unions from directly supporting candidates or political parties.



"Liberal activist judges" my ass.

"Air Monitoring Not Something We Typically Do"

The article is about a "new" company that is, ostensibly, taking over drilling (fracking) operations within city limits and in proximity to a school playground.

From the article: " If the company is so sure no emissions of any kind from the pad will reach the school, they should be willing to prove it, and in doing so offer parents much needed peace of mind."

Foot, meet Mouth. Again.

You might remember Ken Buck (R) from his failed attempt to unseat Sen. Michael Bennet. Buck gained a certain notoriety from an oft-played video of him saying, "Vote for me because I don't wear high heels." And on national television he equated being gay with alcoholism.

Now he's running for the house seat being vacated by Todd Akin's BFF, Cory Gardner. In yesterday's debate against Democrat Vic Meyers there was a question on the topic of immigration. Part of Buck's answer was the rather surprising assertion that the Texas ebola patient is evidence that we need to secure our southern border.
