Another Nice Thing to Say About Mark Udall

Some complain that this blog is completely one-sided in its praise of candidates in Colorado's U.S. Senate race. Yet while we tilt heavily to one side, it is simply untrue that we never give Mark Udall credit. (Here's a recent example.) So here goes the latest:

One of Mark Udall's positive traits - his personal financial integrity - is highlighted in contrast with the exploits of his Minnesota counterpart. Yes, to the best of our knowledge, Mark Udall is NOT a Democratic candidate who owes thousands of dollars in income taxes and penalties.

Scott Johnson, one of Power Line's uberbloggers, puts it best:
Since the expiration of the Al Franken decade in 1990, the only kind of humor for which Franken has been responsible is unintentional. Assuming Franken's tax delinquencies are the result of negligence, they would run true to his post-Franken decade form.
By contrast, Mark Udall has not been responsible for much in the way of humor (outside of sponsoring the Department of Peace proposal) and for nothing in the way of tax delinquency.

Colorado at least can be thankful that Mark Udall is no Al Franken.
