Commentary from the Mile High City

Ah, it wouldn't be the 4th without one of the papers running a story about campaign finance. Turns out our mayor-elect actually had to spend money to get elected. Naturally, the Voice of the Muzzle, also known as Common Cause, is shocked to see that the front-runner out-raised the lagging candidate. People who have so little understanding of human behavior have no business holding forth on things like modifying the First Amendment. There's no quote from CC about the Auditor's race, where Dennis Gallagher was outspent 2-1, by amost $200K, yet still won pretty easily. Funny that.

Back to Hickenlooper. We all knew he was a Democrat, a social liberal but someone with business sense. So, it's a little disappointing that his inaugural ball will be a dress-down fundraiser for the teachers' union. This is exactly the kind of thing I was afraid of from Mares.
