I just heard John Hickenlooper is dropping his Quixotic quest for the White House today, and will challenge Sen. Cory Gardner for his seat instead. Good. Finally, someone got the memo. Someone pulled out the playbook and discovered there was a whole defense line that needed covering, and John is going to help cover it.

To which I say, we should all pull out our wallets and purses and help him. Now that he’s doing what we’ve wanted him to do for months, the message should be made clear, not just to the Hickenlooper Senate campaign, but the other one percenters as well. We all can’t run for President. That’s what those loser third and fourth parties do to elect Republicans who can’t win without people like Ralph Nader helping them.

So if you want to get the word out to certain people that what they're doing isn't helping, I can't think of a better way to do that than by throwing your financial support behind those who, however belatedly, get it.
