Now that Sullivan recall bid has failed, does state GOP know enough to be embarrassed?

For those who wonder why Republicans keep losing in Colorado, we give you the latest GOP fail, in which Kristi Burton Brown, vice-chair of the state Republican Party, officially ended her doomed-from-the-start recall effort against Rep. Tom Sullivan.

The idea, as I may have written before, was not simply wrong-headed, but also a textbook case of political ineptitude.

We can sum up the ineptitude in one sentence: Republicans sought to recall a murder victim’s father for sponsoring a bill he had campaigned on — in his son Alex’s name — that he hoped would save the lives of other people’s sons or daughters.

The ineptitude is embarrassing but hardly surprising. Even if they had somehow gotten the 10,035 signatures required to put the recall on the ballot, they had no chance of actually winning the recall.
