More bad news for "Senator" Bennet; Ritter's incompetence apparently not newsworthy

It’s still lovely, warm, and dry here–days in the 70s and 80s, nights in the 40s.  It’s about time to harvest our eatin’ apples and make some pies, and give the wormy ones to the horses for treats.  Just about the only person having a bad day in Colorado this morning is our Democratic U.S. … Continue reading More bad news for "Senator" Bennet; Ritter's incompetence apparently not newsworthy

Romanoff to challenge Bennet for Colorado Senate in 2010

Well, it looks like I won’t have to be the one to spark a Colorado Democratic primary fight after all:  Former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff has filed papers to challenge our appointed U.S. Senator, “just one vote” Michael  Bennet.  The two of them are both straight, white, male, Wonder Bread twins–neither of them could win … Continue reading Romanoff to challenge Bennet for Colorado Senate in 2010

I was wrong!

Michael Bennet has just been elected Senator.  (I suppose I’ll have to stop calling him “Senator” with the scare quotes now.)  If you recall, I predicted in August before the primary:  “Bennet will either lose next week, or he’ll lose in November.  He’s going to have to clean out his desk in January, in any … Continue reading I was wrong!

More beating up on the majority of the Democratic party by abusive Democratic pols:  “Democrats in Tight Races put Focus on Abortion Rights,” again in The New York Times,with a photo of our U.S. “Senator” Michael Bennet talking to actual XX chromosome people as the poster boy for desperate Dems.  Dig this–if we stay home, under-vote, or vote … Continue reading Dems to women: it'll be different this time, baby, we promise!

Democrats to women: drop dead

Here’s an article headlined “Can women save the democrats?” (via RealClearPolitics) suggesting that Democrats are attempting a last-ditch effort to pull their a$$es out of the fire in November:  targeting their base of women voters.  Except, it’s mostly a recitation of bad polling numbers for the Dems–there’s little if any indication that Democrats intend to do anything about … Continue reading Democrats to women: drop dead

Money, money, money: it's a rich man's world.

“Welcome to the Recovery!,” shouts Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.  (Yeah–you’re welcome to it, pal.)  Running a ponderous description of everything you think you’ve been doing in the New York Times–yeah, that’ll do it.  That’ll make of those jobless folks in the Rust Belt feel better and put money in the pocketbooks of all of those people whose unemployment benefits … Continue reading Money, money, money: it's a rich man's world.
