To summarize …
To the Right: Have you read National Review? Some investigative journalism done there shows that the Dead Governors (aka Colorado Pols) is funded by liberal sugardaddies Gill, Stryker, and Polis.
Dead Governors: Nuh-uh. Are not. Our views and agenda may happen to closely align with the wealthy Lefties, but we’re raising all our own money through paid advertising. You can’t trust that National Review anyways.
To quote the Pols: “We’ve never had financial backing at any point, nor is it required to do what we do; it really doesn’t cost much money to keep a blog running every month.” No, but it sure can be a nice incentive for giving your time to the cause.
If it hasn’t been said here clearly before, it should be said now: the Pols site has a distinct and definite liberal bias, one that has only become more and more pronounced. Are they funded by Gill et al.? There appears to be compelling evidence from a credible source, though the debate isn’t settled. And even if the accusations somehow are nothing more than wild rumors, they have been able to sustain life because of the clear connection between the Pols’ agenda and bias and those of their alleged benefactors.
(Sigh. Where are the wealthy conservatives who want to subsidize this blog so I can come back and adamantly deny it later? )
One final note: I’m not sure whether it’s more sad or amusing to see the anonymous bloggers on either side of Colorado’s political spectrum bickering now that the election is over. To the Right and Colorado Pols seemed to get along quite swimmingly about many things during election season, like taking turns throwing stones at the Beauprez campaign. (Not that it wasn’t always an easy target, but there is something to be said for a little self-restraint.)
Regardless, liberal Democrats have been doing a fine job purchasing political power for themselves in Colorado. The question is who is awake enough to do anything about it.
