Shaffer promotes “Heckle A Democrat” tour

Colorado State Senator Brandon Shaffer was kind enough to fill us in on events around the area reminding us why we should not retain any of his pals in their current elected positions.  Mr. Shaffer, in is eloquent, yet meat-headed, way of speaking reminds us that “We are in the throws of the campaign season“.  Yes, blankets for all – that’s what a “throw” is.  Maybe he meant “throes“.  (Is it just me, or does Mr. Shaffer speak, quite similarly to Michael Bennett, like they’ve taken a 2×4 to the side of the head?  Watch the Bennett commercials closely, they’re on constantly, see what I mean – just an observation)
