Gotta Love Colorado Republicans
June 30, 2016

Republicans felt pretty certain that they could win a senate seat in Colorado. Democrat Michael Bennet, who just barely won in 2010, seemed vulnerable to them.

Colorado Republicans were all set to win, but they couldn’t find a damn candidate. Apparently, a little known county commissioner with very little financial backing won the primary. And he’s a tad crazy.

Darryl Glenn did it again. With little money and an all-volunteer staff, the county commissioner from El Paso shocked the Republican establishment again Tuesday by clinching the party’s nomination for U.S. Senate and earning a chance to unseat Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet in November.

Glenn is endorsed by Ken Cuccinelli and Sarah Palin. He has promised “not to work with Democrats” if elected. He’s Ben Carson minus the sparkling personality.

But here’s the fun part. In describing the primary, the Denver Post wrote ….

The Election Night results capped a bizarre primary that featured a menagerie of chaos from forgery charges and millionaire candidates to an exploding toilet and a Great Dane named Duke.

Hell, how did we miss that?
