Unsubscribing from the Denver Post

To all my sisters and brothers here in Colorado, The Denver Post has taken it upon itself to endorse Cory Gardner for Senate.  This is less unexpected than it is distasteful.  The Post has always leaned Right, but what is really obnoxious about this choice is that the people who have made it appear be taking this Bible thumping zealot at his word with regard to changing his mind on the issue of personhood - disallowing most commonly used forms of birth control and no abortion even in cases of rape and incest.  It is no secret that even as the rag went to press Gardner has legislation before the House that amounts to personhood.  It is easy enough for him to say now that he has changed his mind. However, 5 will get you 10 that if elected to the Senate this low rent demagogue will return to the lame duck session and put said legislation through. Particularly, if the Right holds a Senate majority.  

I don't give the media many points for brain power, so one could make the case that they are just stupid or naive.  In the final analysis it won't matter a damn.  The bottom line is that there is no percentage for women in having this creep in the Senate.  I'm suggesting that it is worth a protest, that is to say a group cancelling of subscriptions to remind the The Denver Post that they don't have much to lose here, but the women of the State of Colorado have a great deal at stake. 

Finally, I don't subscribe to mainstream publications, but for those who do I submit that there are many places to get information.  It is my opinion, in point of fact, that the farther away from corporate media one gets the better the information.
