It’s often said that Democrats’ herd mentality runs deep, but rumor has it their demand for loyalty cost a young staffer his job yesterday.  The rumor mills went into overdrive when a young Democratic aide to Democratic Sen. Irene Aguilar was fired on the spot simply because he naively visited a buddy on the Republican side, hoping to check out the Republican aide’s new office space.

This is particularly disheartening because national unemployment among 20 to 24 year olds stands at nearly 10% and among 16 to 19 year olds at nearly 50%.

This week hasn’t brought good news for Democrats on the jobs front.  Make that just one more Colorado job down the toilet due to the Democratic idiocracy.
