It’s been a while – at least a week – since I’ve used a really over-the-top analogy to make a point, so please bear with me: imagine a very conservative gay Colorado couple, who were recently outraged by the Virginia restaurant refusing service to White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. This hypothetical couple wanted to do something about it, so they went to their neighborhood bakery to have a special cake made, to send to Ms. Sanders. Unfortunately, in my increasingly tortured example, this couple lives in Lakewood, and went to the bakery that recently won the Supreme Court case that said they could refuse to bake cakes for gay couples on the basis of deeply-held religious beliefs. So, no cake for you.

There's no easy way to tell you this, Colorado. Your governor is having a terrible March Madness. Few brackets are busted as badly as John Hickenlooper's. Colorado Politics didn't think to ask for the governor's bracket until the jumpshots were already falling in the annual NCAA basketball tournament, and by then Hickenlooper was enroute to Connecticut to help commission the USS Colorado. And when we got a look Saturday evening, one thing was for sure. If Hickenlooper was cheating by offering a late bracket, then he's worse at cheating than he is picking hoops.
