Asshat of the Week---Politicos in Weld County

Wouldn't you know it.

Take a couple of days off and the Asshats multiply faster than rabbits!

Everyone knows that politics is a dirty business.

Well in Colorado, it just got a lot--uh--dirtier and stinkier, thanks to Kathleen Ensz, who heads up the Weld County Democrats Get-Out-the-Vote campaign.

On Thursday, she was "written a citation by Greeley police on suspicion of criminal use of a noxious substance in connection."

In English?

She allegedly delivered a big load of dog crap wrapped in a congressional mailer through Rep. Marilyn Musgrave's (R) mail slot.

Musgrave's staff offered an opinion that Ensz must own a very large dog.

Ensz told The Associated Press she left the envelope at Musgrave’s office but said it “wasn't in the office doors, it was in the foyer.” She declined further comment.

Now I get a snicker out of verbal shit-slinging as much as the next immature person, but c'mon, even this crosses a line.

To equal out the Asshatism (politicos never seem to let an opportunity go by), the Musgrave camp gets the Oliver Stone Conspiracy Cookie in an effort to link the dookie delivery to state Rep. Angie Paccione (D), who is running for Musgrave's seat in the next election.

On Thursday, knowing that police were writing a citation, Musgrave’s campaign office sent out a press release linking the two.

Their proof? Rep. Paccione is the Democratic candidate, and Ensz is an active Democratic supporter.

Please remind me the next time I write a check to the Springs Rescue Mission that I'd be wiser to send anonymous cash.

Just in case some Asshat comes to the brilliant conclusion that because the Mission is a Catholic charity, my donation is to support pedophile priests.

Our tax dollars at work, folks.

Politics have never been polite but I swear it's sunk to juvenile new levels lately, on both sides. Remember when we could at least have a semi-polite discussion with a person of the opposite party?

And c'mon Dems, piles of dog poop not so much gonna win us elections. Grow up.
