Lefty Cara DeGette at Colorado Confidential needs to read more carefully. Her recent diary on GOP State Chair Dick Wadhams’ recent visit to Montana painfully stretches to draw a contrast between his remarks to a Republican group in Big Sky Country with those quoted Monday in the Denver Post.
To make her “gotcha” point, she conflates two issues. In both venues, Wadhams made confident predictions for the Republican candidate to win Colorado’s electoral votes and for Bob Schaffer to win Colorado’s U.S. Senate race. The pessimism highlighted by the Post‘s Karen Crummy was that the GOP didn’t expect to take back the Colorado state legislature until 2010, a topic he didn’t address to the Montana audience.
No hard feelings, just a quick correction. It’s a forgivable mistake for amateur “independent” journalists like us.
