Trouble in Canon City
For Republicans, that is.
Another indicator that Richard Cohen is blowing hot air out his ass about leftie anger in emails? Voters in Fremont County are not privy to Cohen's hate emails, and some may have written a few themselves. (From DemNotes)
You know the Republicans are in trouble when the Democrats get a better reception in places like Fremont County than the Republicans.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of staying here in Canon City for the annual “Blossom Festival” parade ... Democrats were right in the middle of the parade, leaving the Republicans several entries behind.
Then, folks started showing up — and kept showing up! We had a HUGE entry — literally three blocks long! ...
The best note, though, was when we reached the end of the parade route. Walking through the crowds of several tens of thousands of parade-watchers, we had gotten several cheers — even more than usual. When we got to the end, all of our candidates received cheers from the many folks at the end — the crowd was particularly loud. I stuck around to see what the Republican entry looked like on the route. What energized me most was the crowd’s response to the Republicans — complete and utter silence. Not a cheer to be heard. Keep in mind, now, that Fremont County rivals El Paso County for how Republican its voters are.
Utter silence for the Republicans? How rude. ::sniffsniff:: We are not amused.
