Colorado GOP — Stop The Circular Firing Squad

The Colorado Republican Party and Tancredo camp are feuding, naturally, over Rep. Tancredo’s announcement yesterday that he will run for Governor as a third party candidate if the current GOP candidates don’t agree to drop out.  I happen to believe that the Governor’s race this cycle is a lost cause for the GOP.  But regardless of whether that position is correct, and regardless of anyone’s thoughts about Rep. Tancredo and his announcement yesterday, here is a piece of timely advice to both camps — shut up already. 

Rep. Tancredo — Run or don’t run.  I don’t care (see above).  But if you do run, run against Hickenlooper and let the rest sort itself out.

Colorado GOP — Support McInnis or Maes, or don’t support them.  I don’t care (see above).  But if you get involved, run against Hickenlooper and let the rest sort itself out.

It is really not that complicated.  There is obviously a huge intra-party dispute brewing as the Governor’s race unfolds.  But friendly fire doesn’t help your side, no matter how sincere your belief is that pulling the trigger was justified.  So just shut up.
