DENVER — Good Tuesday to you … And for those keeping tabs: 11 days until Christmas, 18 days until New Years and 37 days until the inauguration of Donald Trump. Or as detractors call it, the end of civilization as we know it. Outside of a federal judge calling the lawsuit of two electoral defectors a ‘political stunt,’ the best story of the morning is continued speculation that Broncos superhero John Elway has sights set on being Colorado’s next governor. Elway is probably more likely to return as Bronco quarterback than run toward the gal of becoming Colorado’s next captain. But … every year, like children waiting for Santa to squeeze his spare tire down the chimney, it's fun for the GOP to dream, we guess.

DENVER — Good morning holiday shoppers … Just two more weekends of manic buying before Christmas Day. Yippee! Of course, it’s also the time of year when we're over-scheduled with office parties, block parties, decorating parties, school parties … every kind of party. AGAIN, yippee. We do want to thank the members of Colorado’s Lincoln Club for a look into their Christmas party this week. (We appreciate the e-mail and pictures, you guys.) How do political insiders celebrate the holidays? Why talking state politics, of course!
