I was glad to see that the margin was not close. We have enough disunity in the party as it is.

Also of note, State Assembly phenom Cassandra Vargas did not fare as well amongst the general Republican electorate. An interesting contrast to the Assembly result, where Vargas was within 18 votes of knocking Lamborn off the primary ballot entirely.

So you tell me, which is more "conservative" the Colorado GOP leaders, or the statewide Republican electorate? One possible explanation is that Lamborn won on incumbency and name recognition, but that certainly isn't the whole story.

Here's the story with the Vargas/Lamborn result.

I like Glenn; I hope he turns his rhetorical guns on Senator rubber-stamp, stays focused on economics and stays positive! Anybody remember how Gardner ran such an effective, positive campaign? Here's one idea:

From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. Well, if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.

I'd substitute "time to time" with "everyday on NPR"

and in other excellent news, the disreputable Gordon Klingenschmitt was drummed out.

Xtra credit for those who recognize the quote's origin.

I like it, nb! But I can't name the source. My first thoughts were Lincoln or Kennedy.
