Ritter signs bill to protect gays from discrimination

Huzzah! Here’s yet another reason to rejoice over Bill Ritter being elected governor last year. The Colorado governor signed a bill to protect gays from discriminatio (via 9NEWS.com): Gay people would be protected from being fired based on their sexual orientation under a bill signed into law Friday by Governor Bill Ritter. This is the same type of bill that former governor Bill Owens vetoed. Twice! Ritter has been a breath of fresh air asLearn More

‘Brownie’ blasts Bush

So is this a case of rats leaving a sinking ship, or just a man trying to cover his own ass? Dunno for certain, but Michael Brown came out swinging hard against President Bush about the Hurricane Katrina recovery disaster (courtesy 9News.com): Brown said his biggest mistake during the handling of Katrina was not standing up to his bosses and letting the American people know how the president and his aides did not want toLearn More

Push to abolish death penalty moves forward

There’s a continued push here in Colorado to abolish the death penalty: The bill to abolish the death penalty in Colorado and create a cold case unit is moving forward in the state legislature.In a 7-4 vote, the House Judiciary Committee approved the measure Wednesday. State Representative Paul Weissman, a Democrat from Louisville, says abolishing the death penalty could save millions of dollars which could go elsewhere.

More racist ideas from possibly-racist Tancredo

Now as I’ve said before, I don’t know this for certain, but I am fairly certain that Tom Tancredo is a racist. How else can you explain most of his anti-immigrant stances, or his racist-tending ideas? For example, 9NEWS reports that Tancredo wants to have the black and Hispanic congressional caucuses abolished. Apparently, Tancredo believes that these caucuses are equivalent to segregation, which basically just shows that Tancredo has no idea what segregation is. AndLearn More

The Democratic Party does have ideas!

I am pretty sick and tired of hearing people say, “Democrats don’t have any ideas! They don’t have any plans for how to make things better. All they can do is bash Republicans.” This is patently false; the Democratic Party has a Six-Point plan for 2006: The Democratic Party is committed to keeping our nation safe and expanding opportunity for every American. That commitment is reflected in an agenda that emphasizes the security of ourLearn More

Marilyn Musgrave answer questions from her constituents? Pshah!

The folks over at ProgressNowAction tried to interview Marilyn Musgrave and ask her a question posed by an undecided voter in her district. Instead of answering, however, Musgrave cut and ran while those with her tried to manhandle the questioners. Sound far-fetched? Fortunately, there’s video of the whole incident:

Bill Winter debates Tom Tancredo

Just in case there was any doubt in your mind who should win the congressional race here in the Highlands Ranch area, watch this YouTube video of the debate between Winter and Tancredo (and jax): There should be no way for Winter to lose, ‘cept for the fact that registered Republicans outnumber Dems 2-to-1  here…

Democrats have big lead after sex scandal

Yahoo! News has what may be the least surprising headline ever: Democrats have big lead after sex scandal: A ABC News/Washington Post poll found Democrats held a 54-41 percent lead in the congressional horse race among registered and likely voters, which ABC said was the biggest Democratic lead this close to election day in more than 20 years. This shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone.  Representative Foley’s actions were bad, Speaker of the House Hastert’sLearn More

“When the walls / come crumbling down”

How much worse can things get for House Republicans right now? Mark Foley’s predilection for little boys would’ve seemed to have been a catastrophe. But instead, Foley’s pediophilia is just the tip of the iceberg. The Republican cover-up is turning out to be the true catastrophe for the House Republicans. One which they aren’t going to recover from. So just how bad is it? It looks like the coverup has been going on for threeLearn More
