I see a lot of bad stuff in the #FeverSwamps™, but I am continually shocked by the depravity of a Republican activist and fundraiser named Tom Ready. Each year, Tom Ready holds a “Steak Fry” that benefits Republicans under his “Let’s Win” PAC. Each year, some of the biggest names in GOP state politics show up to eat and drink with him.
Slate has an article out detailing Russian bot attempts to sow discord in the United States by ginning up racial strife in the wake of the tragic Charlottesville rally. It’s worth the read:
This story flew around the Fever Swamps™ like a bad illness when it was first reported. It went along the lines of: Overly politically correct ESPN banned an announcer from a game simply because he shared a name with infamous traitor General Robert E. Lee. State Rep. Lori Saine (R-Firestone) bought it.
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) moved his Denver office last week, and many of the constituents who have gone to his office to protest his health care votes and seek information regarding his positions think it’s an effort to drive them away.
Denver Post article should stop conservatives from misrepresenting the Medicaid budget and scapegoating low-income people
I can’t tell ya how excited I was to read, “Is Medicaid Gobbling Up Colorado’s Budget,” in The Denver Post, and reporter John Ingold did not let me down.
A few years ago I ran across what had become an inside joke among liberal political bloggers. Basically, if you are looking for an explanation for GOP actions and behaviors that don’t make sense through a political lens, you should look to Cleek’s Law:
If you haven’t seen it, the GOP and Jeff Hunt, the anti-LGBT bigot who runs the Centennial Institute these days, made a dance video to promote the 2017 Western Conservative Summit. That’s the yearly meeting where “conservatives” get together and preach to the choir about their “economic anxiety” and promote their irrational fear of the “other”.
Despite wading through the Fever Swamps™ on a daily basis, sometimes even I am caught off guard by the overt, disgusting racism openly displayed by some members of the Colorado Republican Party.
GOP congressional candidate calls me a “F.A.G.” as part of claim he’s not bigoted against transgender people
If you read my columns, then you are probably familiar with Casper Stockham. He’s the former GOP congressional candidate who regularly posts 100% fake news on his Facebook wall and calls anyone who disagrees with him a racist.
