Erica: yes, Scott Brown is handsome. Excellent suggestion. Most of the rest of R senators look like largemouth bass.

We don’t mind a little re-hashing, sampling, mix-taping, whatever youse want to call it of political rhetoric, but we’re pretty much overstocked with praxtitioners back this way, and don’t need to import praxtitioners of the dreaded “West Coast” style of that genre! Plus, we don’t have water law in these parts, except as it relates to the production of water ice.

He looks to me like one of those dweeb douchebags at the engineering frat down the block where we used to show up when all our beer and weed was gone and pretend to be their friends.

I know they’re up against a wall, being Republicans and all.

Are there any good-looking Republicans other than Todd Palin? (And he’s not even a candidate, just a candidate’s spouse.) Anyone? Anyone? Hot Republican men?

(Republican men all look like Phil Gramm or Jesse Helms to me.)

From the Denver Post:

Despite calls for him to step aside, Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis said this morning said he isn’t going anywhere, then cancelled a scheduled appearance at a rally in Erie.

“I am in it to win it,” he wrote on his Facebook page. “We will continue to fight for Colorado’s businesses and families and will not leave this race. Stay strong!”

But top Republicans who have been meeting and discussing the issue said McInnis is done — whether he knows it or not. Party insiders say the damage to McInnis is so severe that he can’t recover, and they are actively courting University of Colorado president Bruce Benson, Senate Minority Leader Josh Penry, and interestingly, U.S. Senate candidates Ken Buck and Jane Norton who are embroiled in their own primary.

. . . . .

“We’re the party that said Ward Churchill had to lose his job for plagiarism,” [Sen. Greg] Brophy said. “We just can’t stand for this.”

I can’t help it. I’m not really a Dem any more, but

BWAaaa-hahahahahahaha!

There was also some state senator who went on a radio show calling her a towelhead — stuff got seriously nasty. (I don’t expect she’ll get my vote, but I AM glad that she beat Andre Bauer.)

But at least there’s no evidence she plagiarized anything, right?

When Fratguy and I saw the photos of the dudes Haley supposedly stepped out with, we knew it was fiction from the start. She could do better than a random ugly blogger and a random overly tanned lobbyist. A lot better.
