Unfortunately, I can't link it because of the Epic Nanny Filter, but it's the first hit on this Google search.
No thread which mentions Ann Coulter should ever go without a link to the old poopenhausen story.

GREAT! I hope everybody stays away from Telluride this year - especially around the end of March!

From the story:

""In a country where a July poll found as many as 46 percent of Americans favor impeachment, Neil Young is singing "Let's Impeach the President," and online stores are selling "impeach" baby bibs, wall clocks and doggie shirts, Telluride is getting hit with a surprising amount of anti-impeachment venom," the Post report said."

Suprising amount??? Who does this genius think makes up the demographic who fequent this town/resort. It is not the patchouli smelling, 25 bucks to their name, Bush haters I see frequenting the coffee shops in Denver.

Perhaps that's the whole point of the mayor's move. To change to composition of the town?

Out with the Bush lover, so there's now room for the Bush haters to move in?

From what I've read, once you get north of "merely affluent" the population of Richistan tends to shift liberal. Make of it what you will...

Sucking in the "Smell of naplem in the morning", to the strains of the "Ride of the Valkeries", the Uber-Frauen rides into battle with the evil moonbats, while deriding Tom Hagen, a disabled Vietnam veteran, "people like you caused us to lose that war" she offers her "Final Solution" to the Moslem problem: "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity". All hail to the might Vader.

I have always loved Telluride, never a boring moment.. One side of town Rich Texens in Hummers, the other side, pot smoking ski bums in VW vans. Both have pitty on the other.

Personally, I'll make a point of trying to get to Telluride this season because of this. Heck, maybe we should move the Gathering. Who's up for it?!

Gee. A Bush bashing liberal enclave at Telluride to get even with people for not spending their money. Sounds like just a great ski trip. If you go I sure hope you "feel" good, for what its worth - which is zero!

It does sound good. Like the old days when we protested the war. It's nice to see people take a stand for what they believe, even when there is risk involved. There has been complacency in America lately.

I think most people won't be phased by this. The ski area didn't vote, it was the people. And the complacency that prevails today - most will say who cares. Could wind up being cheap advertising.

Ahhh yes - good times! Getting your head cracked with a police nightstick, spitting on returning soldiers, Daddy sending you away to College....

But cudos to you for using the word "complacency" twice in suck a short post!

I'm not saying war protestors need to STFU and I think Vietnam was a ridiculously tragic mess, but I can't pass up the opportunity to crack on nostalgic hippies. I have yet to hear some Army infantyman reminis about the "good ol' days" in the Central Highlands.

Speaking of Hippies,Jer.

Everyday was a good day, if you were breathing.

I'm sure you're right. However, I've never heard anyone wax nostalgic about humping 70 lb packs through a 100 degree jungle all day and getting four hours of sleep per night and being really unsure about what everyone was dying for. At least not to the extent that I hear aging hippies/born-again yuppies get all misty-eyed about getting stoned and vandalising the campus.

The "speaking of hippies" thing went right over my head.

I saw Neil at Red Rocks last summer, one of the best concerts I've been too.

... and there's absolutely no reason to call the war Viet Raq. Just because it's the wrong war being fought in the wrong place at the wrong time for the wrong reasons, with thousands of good young men (and women) suffering and dying because of it - and that's just the "good" guys - doesn't mean it's anything like Vietnam. At all.

Agreed -- at least in Vietnam, we went in gradually, throwing good money after bad, in an attempt to prop up and stabilize the status quo, rather than invading another country because....

Well, frankly, I still don't know why.

I gotta say that one thing that sucks about living in a resort town is you live in a product and every tourist is a critic.

But, it is what it is.

Hi Alpinedad:

There are some parallels between the two "conflicts". The fuse which initiated our armed intervention in Vietnam started with the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. Prior to that, we had only "military advisors" serving in Vietnam. The reasons for our current involvement in Iraq needs no further comments from my self.

Cheers.

Folks, if you want to talk about the resort town effected by a political decision, fine.
If you want to talk about war conflicts and protesting, then you need to take the discussion to politics and hot topics.

Yeah, we got off into a tangent. Sorry, ma'am.
