Competing for the Left Vote

Claire Ryder, Chairwoman of the Denver Green Party objected to the Denver Post article announcing the entry of Bob Kinsey into the US Senate race. Her objection came in the form of a letter to the editor that stated in part:

With more than 70 percent of the American public against the occupation of Iraq and a majority of the American public in favor of impeachment [according to some polls], I would hardly call this a “narrow group.” [ Mark ] Udall’s insistence of continuing the funding of the war, in the guise of “supporting of troops,” is unpopular with many of his potential voters. These well-informed voters have been following his voting record in Congress.

Her facts are wrong, or at best outdated. If they were right, Harry Reid would again opine that "The war is lost" and be scheduling weekly defunding votes like he was last Spring. We haven't heard a peep out of Congress in months.

Read the rest, here.
