‘Bad Three’ grabbing national attention

It’s probably not fair to say everyone’s talking about Colorado’s three tax-cutting ballot proposals, but it is safe to say they are now getting some national attention.
The New York Times this morning filled roughly a third of a page with a story about the proposals, creating the odd juxtaposition of Douglas Bruce and Lady Gaga being pictured one above the other, safely separated, of course, by a sea of gray type.
The Times spoke to people on both sides of the debate, but primarily made the case that even most Colorado Republicans think the three measures go too far and should be defeated.
“The Bad Three,” as they are known — at least to opponents — have been a key point of differentiation among Colorado’s candidates for governor, though American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo recently indicated he may no longer support all the measures.
