Truth in humor: Hickenlooper’s too-quiet run for governor

Posted by Kelly Maher on October 13th, 2010

The clever minds at CompleteColorado.com have broken through on the bizarre Colorado governor’s race, revealing Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper’s campaign strategy.

“Today we salute you, John Hickenlooper, Mr. Avoid-All-Controversy-Until-The-Election’s-Over,” is part of the voiceover, a great send-up of the famous Budweiser “Real Men of Genius” ad campaign.

The reference we most enjoyed was to U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., whom we parodied this year as morphing into Hickenlooper.

After all, DeGette said of Hickenlooper in 2008, “But frankly I would bet you - he doesn’t have a Congressional voting record - but if you look at some of the things he’s done, he’s probably at least as liberal as me.”

But that couldn’t possibly be true. Could it? I mean, someone would tell us if that was true? Wouldn’t they tell us? I mean, before Hickenlooper could possibly win the governor’s office, someone would undoubtedly dig deep into that question and get the answer. Right?

Keep laughing, friends.
