Colorado's campaign contribution limits are ridiculously low. They should absolutely be raised. But maybe we should go a step further, not just for Colorado but for the whole country.

When Kim Jong Un walked into South Korea, it was the first time a North Korean leader had set foot in the South since the end of the Korean war 65 years ago. I have no idea whether anything substantive will come of it, but the optics were incredible. Given the standard set by Barack Obama's receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, you'd have to think that President Trump would be the clear winner for 2018 having been the undisputed primary cause of this glimmer of hope.
On Thursday afternoon, Bill Cosby's self-destruction was completed when he was convicted on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.
I can't include the audio here because it includes foul language, but it should be remembered that a major cause of Cosby having to pay for his crimes was due to comedian Hannibal Buress repeatedly calling Cosby a rapist in his stand-up. For example, "Google 'Bill Cosby Rape'...that (expletive) has more results than 'Hannibal Buress'.) Again, this has swearing:
I'm very happy with this news; I've been saying on the air for several years that Cosby is a serial rapist and was often surprised (and disappointed) by how many people felt the need to defend him.
On Thursday, President Trump expressed support for a popular vote election, meaning the elimination (or neutering) of the Electoral College. It's a truly terrible idea.
