*olora*o politi*s getting weir*er by the *ay

Rumor has it that the campaign for higher taxes and deeper debt will soon roll out their new slogan, "Without C and D There's No Colorado." (Get it?) This gem, besides taking the prize for megalomania and bathos, starts a game that two can play. Because those same two letters are indispensable to Democrats -- and as Jon Caldara points out, to dildos and condoms as well.

Then again, without C and D there's no Caldara either. High stakes indeed.

I'm still going to take my chances and vote no, even if it means we have to spell our state's name as *olora*o from now on. If the end result is keeping taxes down and keeping TABOR strong, it's a chance *al*ara and I are willing to take.
