Aspen, Colorado is not exactly known as a bastion of conservative thought and Republicans typically have an uphill climb in the area where real estate prices rival those in Manhattan. But, don’t tell the Pitkin County GOP. Despite the odds against them electorally and otherwise, this scrappy and determined group won the Aspen Fourth of July Parade “best music” for the second year in a row this weekend.

Their float theme was “Rock with Us – Join the Party” and featured a local teen band. See the picture below.

Maybe this isn’t a prime example of investigative journalism, but we can appreciate and give kudos to a group that is working to make inroads behind liberal lines.
