There’s nothing quite so wonderful as being super-safe-districted out of having hope of ever having an actual, like, you know, representative.

I should add: it’s not like we’ve got it so good up here in the 4th CD. Since the Dems redistricted Fort Collins and much of Larimer into Polis’s district, we’re about the second-safest Republican seat, after your district. Cory Gardiner will likely be our Congressman for life, and/or until a U.S. Senate seat opens up.

I feel bad for you Paul, living in that media market and CD. I suppose the only way to cope is to pretend that this campaign season is produced for your amusement by Stewart and Colbert.

Primary challenger thinks he’s not conservative enough, which is sort of like saying that Everclear is not alcoholic enough.

And good luck with that!

Doug Lamborn (R, Colorado Springs) “boycotted” the event, not attending in person but instead participating in an online chat “forum” sponsored by a right-wing think tank and Fox “News.” For the record, I tried to participate also, but quickly learned that any comment questioning the agenda was (gasp) not posted! No mention made of Giffords.

This can expanded, but it seems enough for now.

Our main problem is bipartisanship. On most bread and butter issues both parties get their matching orders from the 1%.
