The price of insomnia

Channel surfing, and a commercial comes on for, god help us, "Trumpy Bear."

It's a stuffed thing, with the yellow hair. Cheesy testimonial with a professed veteran cuddling the thing.

$40. I can't even.

Ken Buck says he might run for Colorado attorney general if Cynthia Coffman runs for governor

Political dominoes are falling across Colorado, and the latest could have Republican U.S. Rep. Ken Buck run for state attorney general in 2018 if Cynthia Coffman, the current officeholder, decides to join the crowded race for governor.

Two Republican operatives said that Buck, a two-term lawmaker from Windsor, has begun to talk about the possibility, and he confirmed his interest in a brief phone interview.

“If she decides that she’s not going to seek (the) attorney general’s office, I would certainly keep my options open,” Buck said.

Sez me: He was discharged from the Colorado Justice Department for ethics violations. As DA he prosecuted and lost a politically vindictive case, in the process costing county taxpayers more than $100,000. He helped to bring very negative national attention to the county when he helped to engineer the dubiously legal raids at the packing plant. He claimed he was better suited for office than his primary opponent because, unlike her, “ I don’t wear high heels.” He refused to prosecute an admitted rapist because he was personally convinced that the victim was merely experiencing “buyer’s remorse”. He believes that alcoholism and being gay are choices. He was disciplined by the state Supreme Court for his unconstitutional violations in raiding a tax preparation business that serves the Spanish-speaking community. He promised to bring bullshit to Congress, and he has kept that promise. Ken Buck thinks that this resume qualifies him to be Colorado’s Attorney General. He needs to be disabused of that notion.

Care Not Scare

Just got permission to share some pics from a friend's facebook page. The photos were taken at a local protest that took place in Greeley CO; it was timed to be simultaneous with a protest taking place at the capital in Denver.

Visible AND vocal!

Replay

Back in the horrible W years there was a blog that featured this fellow. Tried to find that blog, website. No luck. If they're still around, let's hope they start putting this back in circulation. It's beginning to look as though the adapted logo is going to have permanent employment.

He's one of those guys.

You know the ones, they cluster around Mitch McConnell like obsequious manservants anxiously awaiting his next finger snap. In this case, he's Colorado's missing-in-action senator, Cory Gardner. Back home, he has his staffers arresting constituents in wheelchairs; if you try to call his office, good luck getting anything but a recording. Over the holiday break he disappeared into a remote deep-red sanctuary where he wouldn't be in danger of contamination from contact with Democrats or other evil libruls. In DC he's easy to spot with his gameshow host smile and skunk-striped hair. And if he isn't in his office chances are good that he's jockeying for position to be first in line to kiss McConnell's flabby ass, it's part of his on-the-job training.
