A Modest Proposal - Doug Bruce for Vice President

Dan Whipple has a brilliant plan for the next step in slum-lording, TABOR-authoring, press-kicking Doug Bruce's career.

Colorado Confidential:: Doug Bruce for Vice President!
In the brief period during which the Colorado state House has been in session, one thing has become clear: The only reason that Douglas Bruce is in the legislature is that Colorado Springs Republicans were eager to get rid of him. Following the time-honored Peter Principle, they promoted him from the El Paso County Commission to the state House. I think the next step in Bruce's meteoric career should be obvious to everyone. So I'm starting a "Doug Bruce for Vice President" campaign. Using the Colorado Springs Republican strategy, this would have the salutary effect of removing Bruce from the state Legislature while placing him in a position in which he could do little further damage to the commonweal. As Thomas Marshall, 28th veep of the U.S. under Woodrow Wilson, said: "Once there were two brothers. One went away to sea; the other was elected vice president. And nothing was heard of either of them again."
