Word is that Sen. Michael Bennet will accept the position as the head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), reuniting there with his old chief of staff, Guy Cecil, who’s now the DSCC’s Executive Director. It’s tempting to conclude that the appointment is largely on the strength of the unexpectedly strong Democrat showing in [...]

It’s been a few days since my last Seeing Stars post thanks to work and family obligations.
In case you missed it, here’s Music Free Static episode 10 (despite my claim that’s episode 11). It’s mostly tech this week.

Congress is facing an uphill battle as they try to deal with massive revenue losses at the US Postal Service without actually fixing the underlying problems. The Senate is working on something now with various Senators, including Colorado’s own Michael…

It’s looking that way but let’s not count our chickens until they’re hatched. I’m being quietly optimistic but, really, if it’s not overturned, what can’t the Federal government — or even a state government — force us to do? It the mandate is upheld,…

Thanks to growing up in the 80s and my general geekiness, I cannot hear the word “frack” without thinking of Battlestar Galactica. It also means that I can rarely read a story about hydraulic fracturing without chuckling a little to myself when I see f…

Linking to interesting news stories is easy. Writing headlines? That’s hard.
Anyway, the observant among you will notice that nearly everything in the “Everywhere else” section is budget related. That’s actually a happy accident but all of the storie…

Sorry about missing Seeing Stars yesterday. It was just one of those days when I just wasn’t home long enough to get anything up. Today and tonight look to be busy as well. Just one more hazard of Christmas season.

Fellow elephants, let me assure you: Things are not as bad as they seem. After a couple of very predictable losses at the State Supreme Court, suddenly people think that Colorado Republicans are headed back to the gallows of perpetual minority. It’s the Blueprint all over again. It brings back nightmares of the liberal takeover in 2004, but I’m here

Candidates are dropping like flies in the wake of Democrats’ reapportionment tricks. Happy reading.
Another one bites the dust. Rep. Keith Swerdfeger won’t see reelection since he got redistricted into a heavily Democrat district with a D…keep looking »

The tentative class schedule is as follows: Saturday, [...]
