Tea Party to Tancredo: Don’t Run?

But I thought they LIKED Tancredo?

But I thought they LIKED Tancredo?

Update: Tancredo’s announced he’s going to run. Get the knife ready so that the CO GOP can cut off their nose to spite their face.

In a bizarre twist of political theatre Colorado Tea Party groups are all but begging Tom Tancredo not to run for governor.

Say WHAT? That wasn’t how the Longmont 9.12 group felt after he came to town and got them all fired up.

Could it be Tom’s terrible trials at the polling place? (I.E. that he has a tendency to lose – badly).

Lu Busse, chair of the 9.12 Project Colorado Coalition wrote an impassioned letter to Tancredo and the 9.12 members to try and wave him off from a surely-disastrous crash landing in the middle of the GOP landscape. In part she asked him how his threat to run lined up with his “principles.” Now there’s some high humor in this political circus – the teabaggers questioning someone’s principles… let alone one of their own. I confess to considerable amusement when reading that.

Tom’s always had a bit of problem with his mouth – he doesn’t seem to know when to shut it and he appears to have a constant longing for the taste of his own foot:

I can truly appreciate why the 9.12 folks are doing the math and realizing that Terrible Tommy wouldn’t just derail their crazy train, he’d send it right off the rails into the gorge, never to be seen again.

The problem is, the Tea Party is now stuck with a three-way cluster – McInnis who was caught with his metaphorical pants around his ankles in a messy and obvious plagiarism scandal, Dan Maes who’s said in so many words “he’ll walk in the door and start firing people” and Tom “Bomb Mecca” Tancredo.

If this is how the CO GOP conducts the run-up to an election, one has to wonder what their style of state governance would look like.

    “There’s an old political axiom in this state, after all, that goes this way: If Tom Tancredo is the answer, you should immediately come up with a new question.” Mike Littwin, Denver Post columnist (7/18/10)

    Just a quick refresher on current events, Tom ‘Bomb Mecca’ Tancredo hasn’t been in office for some time, so his appeal at the ballot box (among other things) clearly has fallen off. His refusal to cooperate with his GOP team just underlines how far outside the mainstream he’s gotten. The man’s completely unfit to be anywhere near power. But I’m thrilled to see him run. Run Tom! RUN!!
