When affiliated voters stop practicing clown car politics in their primaries I'll agree with you. Up until this election cycle the Republicans could be reliably counted on to front idiots like Dan Maes, Scott McInnis, Tom Tancredo, Scott Gessler, and Bob Beauprez while the Democrats would pick more pragmatic candidates like John Hickenlooper. This election cycle, however, the Democrats joined the Republicans in the race to see who could drive their car into the ideological ditch the quickest. Walker Stapleton and Jared Polis were both terrible candidates. Polis is so liberal he makes Hickenlooper look like a Reagan Republican, and Stapleton is a Bushie who hitched his wagon to Cheetolini.

The most pragmatic of the whole R&D trash heap, Mike Johnston, didn't even have a chance because of the obscene amount of money Polis spent on himself.

It's gonna be an interesting two years. Polis has a rubber stamp legislature (barf), and we have wholly unqualified neophytes running the Secretary of State and Attorney General's offices.

Johnston may run for Gardnerís seat. I would be good with that.
