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.

    I was going to make Abortion illegal until I got high.
    I was going to draft a bill to shut down PP, until I got high
    Babies are getting murdered, and I know why.

    Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high.

    I was going to defend marriage, but then I got high.
    I was going to keep gays from being wed, but then I got high.
    Now marriage is destroyed and I know why.

    Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high.

    I was going to keep the wrong people from voting, but then I got high.
    I was going to make sure they wouldn’t get to the polls, but then I got high.
    Now Barack is president and I know why.

    Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high.

    It would solve a lot.

    Doubtful; I think they would just lie about it. Forgotten about Ted Haggard already?

      I suspect meth with a rentboi is a different experience than pot (absent the relative risks, I’d prefer the former to the later but won’t be doing either anytime soon).

      Also props to Tom Tancredo* for carrying out a bet with potential federal law violations attached.

      *an otherwise thoroughly unlikable fellow.
