A Very CoCo Christmas: Our Gifts to Colorado Politicians
It’s the day for gift giving, and we’ve got some that we’d offer up for Colorado’s political beings. These are our ideas; feel free to offer up your own suggestions in comments!For Gov.-Elect Bill Ritter: Referee whistle.
For U.S. Rep. John Salazar’s Campaign: A 2008 calendar with a notation that campaign season starts after Labor Day, not Halloween.
For U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave: A Wizard of Oz boxed set: A brain, a heart and some courage.
For about-to-be-former U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez: Mounted elk head.
For the Denver Election Commission: Paper ballots and a calculator.
For U.S. Rep. Mark Udall’s 2008 Senate campaign: A five-pound box of money – no, make that a 25-pound box of money!
For outgoing Gov. Bill Owens: A gift identical to Udall’s after eight years at $90,000 per year.
For freshmen U.S. Reps.-elect Doug Lamborn and Ed Perlmutter: Invitations to the Colbert Report’s Better Know a District. Or is that a gift?
For Beauprez campaign manager John Marshall: A real job.
For all our CoCo visitors: A continued respite from campaign ads and a peaceful New Year!
