Boulder Daily Camera Not Happy

The Boulder Daily Camera editorial board came out against the "Foot on Throat" campaign proposed to, if not promised by Tim Gill and Pat Stryker:

Democrat Mark Udall and Republican Bob Schaffer are running for the U.S. Senate and are poles apart on policy, but share some common ground. They've amassed years of public service, and they both seem to hew to their principles.

Honorable civic service deserves some respect, regardless of how we might differ from an individual candidate philosophically. Bear that in mind this election season, because the race is bound to get ugly

The funniest quote was this:

Colorado Republican Party chairman Dick Wadhams told the News that the Dems were planning "character assassination," from which, we are supposed to believe, he recoiled. Please. Wadhams' middle name is "scurrilous innuendo."

The next time we see Dick Wadhams, we will try to remember to ask him if that really is his middle name, lol.

Meanwhile, we think it speaks to Mark Udall's character that he hasn't said a word about this kind of tactic.
