Peak Note: This post was sent in by a reader. We don’t think the back and forth will amount to much, but this made us chuckle. Presented unedited:
A liberal 527 group pounced on Republican State House challenger Rick Enstrom for being given a summons for his business selling drug paraphernalia almost 30 years ago. Colorado Pols mocked Republicans for nominating such a despicable soul.
But the progressive attack masks the fact that a judge tossed the charges against Enstrom with prejudice, a move reserved for the rarest situations where charges are so weak as to be bogus.
But still the Left questions how such a candidate, even though totally exonerated, could ever make it through the vetting process.
Maybe progressives should review their own record on candidates who, far from being exonerated, actually cop to “nose candy” in their bio.
From President Obama’s autobiography:
I had learned not to care. I blew a few smoke rings, remembering those years. Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.
There you have it — President Nose Candy. And Colorado liberals are outraged about an exonerated Enstrom?
4 more years, 4 more years, never mind that old photograph with me and a chalk stained nose, just give me 4 more years.
