Voters are done with
Tipton and party hacks

So, let me get this straight. While Bob McConnell is receiving national level endorsements including Sarah Palin, while he is being interviewed by Time and Red State, Scott Tipton’s campaign is circling the drain and sending out complaining e-mails and letters to the editor. How do you spell sour grapes?

When Bob was endorsed by Gov. Palin, you know what Tipton’s reaction was? “Why didn’t she call me?” Whine, whine, stomp my feet and demand the entitlement of a Republican good-old-boy politician. Tipton’s campaign has been sluggish, lackluster, and white-bread party politics from the start. And now, of course, comes the mud-slinging. How disgraceful that it comes from a county commissioner and how typical of the Mesa County GOP. Disgraceful.

Janet Rowland should resign. There are too many misrepresentations in her letter to the editor to even address and Bob always tells his supporters to “take the high road.” Tipton — a retread and loser by a huge margin — obviously tells his supporters otherwise. We are done with Scott Tipton. He should call off his dogs and face the music. His campaign is circling the drain and Bob is going to win big on Aug. 10 because he has the integrity and leadership we so badly need.

GOP party hacks take note: We’re through with you.

Attack on Dick Wadhams
sounds eerily familiar

I read, with great interest, about the mysterious new web site (http://www.dumpdickwadhams.com) attacking Dick Wadhams, state GOP Chairman.

I have no inside or outside information as to who might be behind that web site, but it sounds eerily like the 2006 attack on some local Republicans that had supported Democrat Bernie Buescher.  That attack was carried on by the never-seen “Dan Green” and the mysterious “Colorado Republican Caucus” in the Denver area.

Maybe there is no relationship, but there’s this story about a duck ....
