Longmont's 'Tagline'

The Times-Call* had a fun bit of fluff about possible 'taglines' for Longmont.

Here's a few I thought up:

Longmont: We're cheap, just ask Montana

Longmont: God, Guns & GOP - we got it ALL.

Longmont: 4Cs bitch - again.

Longmont: Coming soon: Pratt Falls!

Longmont: North of Boulder, far right of reality.

Longmont: Where 14% is a 'majority'.

Longmont: Wingnut Wonderland.

Longmont:Wannabe Weld County.

Longmont: Nucla's big brother.

* tagline: "We post-moderate by complaint!"

Bad Language

Just got home from a protest at a fundraiser for Scott Gessler*.

Gee, neither Mr. Wrongmont or the Longmont Examiner seemed happy to see me. Used bad language to me! Sorry, no video on that, next time!

Others noted at the scene of the crime: Dale Bruns of LifeBridge 4C fame, Julia Pirnack of past GOP-controlled council and Marvin Dyer, property owner at the heart of the LifeBridge land deal gone wrong. The stench of old money and bad blood was strong in the air.

Stay tuned for a full report later tonite.

* You remember Scott Gessler, right? He's the guy behind the Western Tradition Partnership from Montana that helped screw our city council election and saddle us with Bryan "Blows Up Real Good" Baum.

Upright in their soul but face-down in the public trough

Stimulus Foes See Value in Seeking Cash:
Sen. Christopher S. Bond regularly railed against President Obama’s economic stimulus plan as irresponsible spending that would drive up the national debt. But behind the scenes, the Missouri Republican quietly sought more than $50 million from a federal agency for two projects in his state.

Mr. Bond was not alone. More than a dozen Republican lawmakers, while denouncing the stimulus to the media and their constituents, privately sent letters to just one of the federal government’s many agencies seeking stimulus money for home-state pork projects.
Wow. These are tax-cutting heroes. YEAHRIGHT. Two-faced shits.
