Rumors that Dan Maes may run for chair of Colorado Republican Party greeted with groans and laughter
When I told this morning's Arapahoe County Republican Men's (and women's) Club breakfast that I've heard rumors that Dan Maes may run for chair of the Colorado Republican Party, there were groans. Then the moderator sarcastically pointed out that the state GOP is responsible for complying with state and federal election laws. That drew laughter because Maes and his family have paid some $17,500 in fines for failing to comply with the state's campaign finance laws' reporting requirements. That Maes may be considering a run for chair was hinted in at the end of his "reflections" on the campaign, which he posted on Facebook this afternoon. If the self pity and nonsense expressed in that rant don't end Maes' political career, I don't know what will. What he and his uncomprehending supporters don't get is that on Nov. 2, some 80% or more of Colorado Republicans and Tea Party sympathizers voted against him.

Gosh Don, Dan’s rant made me hungry. He started talking about the “gaul” of his critics, and all I could think of was French food. I know he’s an uneducated fool, but he’s obviously too lazy to look things up. Or maybe when somebody is so dumb, they are cocksure about their correctness.
For example, I had to correct Mark Hurlbert on two separate occassions for using “flaunt” when he meant “flout.”
Answer me this, was it really you who posted the Maes rant as some sort of red-pencil exam for readers on spotting all the grammatical, diction and spelling errors? If not, we should have a contest.
What’s funny, is Dem aficionados of affirmative action standard-stripping, and tea party anti-intellectuals have conjoined into some really strange bedfellows in ColoradoPosted by Laura Victoria on 11/12/2010 at 04:11 AM
I’m thinking that some tea partiers are very frustrated with their ineffectiveness in the gubernatorial and senate elections in Colorado this year. They seem to think that if they take over the county and state parties they can turn things around.
It’s getting pretty interesting.Posted by Donald E. L. Johnson on 11/12/2010 at 07:23 AM
