Hall of Shame: Colorado Republicans Fight to be the Most Hyperbolic

Never underestimate the hyperbolic negativity of the Republican Party. In the unlovely world of overheated and hyper-partisan Republican rhetoric, going to extremes is just ordinary political behavior.

We're referring to some Colorado Republican candidates, who are working every day to be more idiotically anti-Obama than the other (supposedly pro-Obama) guy.

We mention this Colorado story because it is being repeated right here in Oklahoma, where a variety of GOP windbags are out with their campaign ads, each desperately trying to be the most hysterical. 

This is no surprise for the GOP. Remember the nastiness of Lee Atwater, champion of devious GOP political campaigning, a tradition proudly maintained by Karl Rove.

Oklahoma Republicans can't help themselves—it's all about being negative, being anti-Obama. It's also political baloney.

Read all about it here.

Not so much hyperbolic as nonsensical. That's our Coburn!
