Anadarko Petroleum won't be happy until every last goddamn bit of the Firestone, CO area is blown right off the map.

Anadarko has massive oil and natural gas drilling operations under way in the Firestone area. Last month a house exploded in Firestone. Turned out an improperly abandoned flowline leading from an Anadarko well leaked gas into the house's basement, and two people were killed in the resulting explosion.

Yesterday, an Anadarko tank battery blew up in nearby Mead, CO, killing one and injuring three.

Just a few hours before the tank battery explosion in Mead, Anadarko announced that it discovered two highly concentrated pockets of methane gas in the ground of a Firestone neighborhood located near yet another Anadarko tank battery and set of wells.

Senator Cory Gardner (R-Dildo) hasn't held a single in-person town hall meeting since Trump got elected. He's taken more than a little heat for the aggravated and egregious cowardice, so he's taking advantage of the current Senate recess by holding in-person meetings . . . in South Korea and the Philippines, the latter featuring a lovely photo op with mass murderer Rodrigo Duterte.

Dan Maes was the GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2010. Know best for being an Agenda 21 whackadoo, telling gargantuan lies - including the epic and easily refuted whopper that he was an undercover agent for the Kansas Bureau of Investigation for two years in the 1980s - and getting the entire Republican establishment to abandon him, Maes made history by finishing a distant third, far behind the Democrat and the American Constitution Party candidate.

In "Where are they now?" news, Mr. Maes currently earns his living in the fast-paced, high-energy field of selling funeral and burial pre-planning. After all these years, the jokes still write themselves.

Donnie Dump nominated Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid for Neil Gorsuch's old seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. My disgust over Eid getting a federal court of appeals job is outweighed by joy over the fact that she'll no longer be fucking over personal injury plaintiffs from her seat on the Colorado Supreme Court.

Our state is one with sense enough not to elect judges in head-to-head elections. People interested in Eid's job will submit applications to the Supreme Court Nominating Commission, which will evaluated the applications, conduct interviews and submit a list of three names to the governor. The governor selects one of those people to become the next Supreme Court justice.

Once you first bend a knee in supplication to the Caliphate, it only gets easier. Or so I'm told.

Dear Matlock,

I came to this thread to tell you that Jared Polis is running for governor.

Our congressman, Jared Polis, announced yesterday that he's going to run for governor in 2018. That makes two Lolorado Democrats giving up relatively safe seats in the House of Representatives to run for governor.

It's tough to imagine Polis getting enough support to win a statewide election, but he'll be popular in the most densely populated areas and has a fuckton of money to spend on his own campaign.

Polis' entry means that five Dems and up to nine Republicans will be looking to succeed current Governor John Hickenlooper, who's term-limited.

If this pans out, I already know which candidate I'll be supporting in the race to decide Polis' successor in CD2. Joe Neguse is a spectacularly impressive person.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter, the Dem who represents Lolorado's seventh congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives, announced in April that he was going to leave Congress to run for Governor. In June he announced that he'd "lost the competitive fire" and dropped out of the gubernatorial race.

Today Perlmutter announced that he's seeking reelection to Congress after all. Two of the four candidates campaigning for the Democratic nomination suspended their campaigns and endorsed Perlmutter today. Wouldn't be surprised if the other two candidates followed suit tomorrow or Wednesday.

This is a dick move to be sure, but the GOP had a reasonable chance of picking up this seat without Perlmutter in the race. That chance has now gone bye-byes.

And now for a story that originated right here in our beloved Juggalonia!

The state senator for our district is an insane Republican named Vicki Marble. Last week she appeared before a local Cub Scout den and took questions. The results were predictably crazy.

Generally, when something like this happens people utter multiple "Holy fucks" then quickly forget it ever happened. That didn't happen here, as it recently came to light that an 11-year-old who totally owned Marble during the Q&A session got booted from his Cub Scout den. The story is now national news.

It's now come to light that the Grand High Exalted Mystic Ruler of the Cub Scout den at issue is Don Beezley. Dudebro is lolbertarian-turned-Republican who served one term in the state House of Representatives from 2011 - 2013. He achieved a certain amount of infamy around these parts for stating in public writings that recycling is a big step on the path toward Nazism, city and county governments should not exist at all, private business should build and maintain all roads, the Americans with Disabilities Act forced him to view disabled people as "the enemy" back when he owned and operated restaurants, Dominoes would have done a better job feeding the people affected by Hurricane Katrina than the government, which should provide no disaster relief whatsoever, etc.

Whether or to what extent which Beezley participated in booting the 11-year-old who so thoroughly kicked insane wingnut Vicki Marble's ass is unknown. However, I wouldn't be at all surprised if ol' Don was 100% responsible from the whole incident, from Marble's blatantly political appearance forward.

In related news, former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords says she'll be happy to campaign for the kid if he decides to run for a House seat in 14 years.

Nine -- count 'em, NINE -- female legislators, staffers and lobbyists have come forward to say that Steve Lebsock, a member of the state House of Representatives who's running for state Treasurer, sexually harassed them.

Rep. Cristina Duran, the Speaker of the House, canned Lebsock from his position as chair of the House Local Government Committee and wrote:

Quote:
I would expect that Representative Lebsock would consider the impact of his actions on his colleagues and the public confidence in our institution and do the right thing and resign. There is no place for those types of actions at the legislature.
So then,

Lolorado:

Dem lawmaker sexually harasses adults, Dem House Speaker says "gtfo."

Alabama:

GOP candidate for U.S. Senate molested a 14-year-old at age 32, GOP officials respond with "Child, schmild. Back in Jesus's day, 14 was middle-aged! And besides, what's the big deal about rape anyway?"

These are very disturbing events on both sides.

Also Bill Clinton and Anthony Weiner.

Please ignore that millions were spent investigating Bill Clinton by his political opponents*. And that it was 20 years ago, not like RIGHT NOW.

And that Anthony Weiner resigned. And that he was resoundingly rejected by Democratic voters when he tried to make a comeback. And that he's in jail now.

Anyway, the point is that Democrats defend their own just the same!

*Which is not to say that maybe some of those allegations they shouldn't be revisited. But people who wanted them to stick spent plenty of time on them. I'm even a little surprised nothing more has come out about him this year...
