High times for Colorado Republican.

So…the GOP has a bit of an issue with integrity.  They tend to lie a lot.  Of course, all politicians do it, but the GOP is going to the Super Bowl, as it were, led by their all-star Mitt Romney.  So it’s good to see a Republican who is a man of his word.

Tom Tancredo (R-CO) didn’t think the marijuana reform in Colorado would pass, and he made a bet that if it did he would smoke it for the first time.  Well, the reform passed, and Tancredo is going to get high, kicking and screaming and bewailing the immorality of it the entire time, I’m sure.  His honor comes first.

“Look, I made a bet with the producer of the film that if Amendment 64 passed ( I did not think it would) that I would smoke pot,” he said through his research and education institute, the Rocky Mountain Foundation. “I will therefore smoke pot under circumstances we both agree are legal under Colorado law. Hey, it’s better than having to do a stupid dance as (Denver) Mayor (Michael) Hancock must perform as a result of losing a bet on the Broncos beating the Ravens.”

Honestly, I think if more Republicans would get high we’d have a lot fewer issues.
