State representative Don Marostica reportedly has apologized for yesterday’s bizarre comment that Mark Hillman, Jon Caldara, and other fiscally conservative Colorado leaders are “losers” and “has-beens”. The apology was a public sign of good behavior and good taste, and perhaps a political necessity.
In light of new developments, I conducted a follow-up ad hoc poll: “Are you clamoring to support Republican leaders who want to remove sensible limits on government growth, no matter how apologetic they may be for rudely calling names of those who disagree with them?”
Once again, completely silent. One respondent scratched his forehead, but insisted on clarifying he was not raising his hand as a Yes.
Don Marostica can go his own way if he wishes. But please, let’s not allow him to undo the work of those who are trying to restore limited government and fiscal responsibility to the Republican brand.
