Former Colorado Senate Candidate Turns Margarita Pitchman

So, Bob Schaffer is a former House member from the state of Colorado who ran for the Senate and lost, and now he's on the news helping his wife sell margarita mix. And yeah, I'm supposed to laugh at this, because AHH HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT LOW! But hey, I sort of think margarita mix is great, and Schaffer seems pretty happy, so I say good for him! At any rate, he's not irritating the snot out of me in the way he and his Senate opponent Mark Udall did last year during their "debate" on Meet The Press:

And now they are talking over each other. Good luck Colorado. These two are horrible jerkwads, apparently. I'm not liveblogging this nonsense. I sort of hope a piano falls on both of these people. If that happens, I can catch it in fast forward. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, NO. Sorry, everyone, Mark Udall and Bob Schaffer left Meet The Press today under their own power, despite a nation's fervent prayer that both men's bones get ground to dust and spittle under the weight of a downward descending baby grand piano. Better luck next time, to everyone except Mark Udall and Bob Schaffer, who bore me senseless.

Anyway, selling margarita mix is probably contributing more for the world than anything I'll do today, and the embrace of "all natural ingredients" could get Schaffer out of dutch with the League of Conservation Voters, so I say win-win.
