Bang the Drum Slowly

Sure to be two of the saddest events in Colorado's history:

El Paso County Lincoln Day Gala

Leadership Program of the Rockies Holiday Party

I'm thinking the Programs at both parties1 will look something like this:
  • Reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance2
  • Apologies that Rep. Musgrave and Sen. Allard could not attend
  • Introduction of honored guests/large donors
  • Inspirational speeches to the faithful (all 20)
  • Dinner (including a main course of crow garnished with ashes)
  • Cash bar
  • Shouted accusations
  • Shoving
  • Fistfights
Oh, they'll just be GRAND 'parties'.
1 - more like wakes
2 - with muted sobbing

If Lincoln were alive today, he wouldn't recognize his Party. It's done a 180.

More like several drunken 360s. Ever seen drunk kids in a snow-covered parking lot? Lots of fun and laughs - until they hit a parking block and shatter the suspension... much like this election. Now there will be much parental punishment, grounding and then, sadly, another car.
