Dion: Polis ‘fiddles’ while the Middle East burns?

As reported by Newsmax, in a pre-convention speech in Charlotte, N.C., this month, Jared Polis bemoaned the fact: “There’s not a single gay bar in my entire district. California does a better job of accommodating the gay community, particularly San Francisco.”

Really, Mr. Polis? With the economy in free-fall, the median income of middle-class families down almost 10 percent from four years ago, the middle East aflame, and our embassies under attack all over the world, you think that gay bars in Boulder is a priority worth even mentioning?

Frankly, I want congressional representation that is concerned with the real issues facing us. If Mr. Polis wants a gay bar so badly, why doesn’t he just turn the congressional race over to Kevin Lundberg and go open one himself? You won’t be getting my vote, Mr. Polis!
