Mad old Wadhams at it again

Dear Editor,

What’s up, Wadhams?

Poor Dick, the state Republican Party chief, has lost his last two elections. No Gov. Beauprez. No Sen. Schaffer. He’s lashing out in all directions, criticizing Colorado’s two senators, Mark Udall and Michael Bennet, for trying to change the status quo in Washington, over the complete objection of the Party of NO, by voting for what both senators admit is very good, but not perfect, health care and insurance reform.

Neither of our senators asked for any special favors or backroom deals, so poor Dick calls them “cowards.” What’s up with that? Then mad old Dick gives a backhanded slap to both Gov. Ritter and Sen. Bennet for the appointment — made by the first, of the second — when the president chose Ken Salazar to be secretary of the Interior.

Does poor Dick think this sort of nasty political name-calling will somehow beget a Gov. McInnis or a Sen. Norton? Or is this a preview of consecutive defeats three and four for old Wadhams?
