Tonight was the last of the gubernatorial debates in Colorado. Hickenlooper, who is ahead of Bob Beauprez by .2% in the RCP average, finished off his debate series with yet another blooper.

The incumbent democrat had what may be considered in Akin moment. When Bob Beauprez brought up the fact that under Gov. Hickenlooper’s watch regulations were put in place that allow sex offenders to work around children and not have it affect their parole, Hickenlooper explained that sex offender doesn’t mean sex offender … Maybe it just means statutory rape.

But the good bartender doesn’t stop there. Oh no, he goes on to say that maybe charging a person with statutory tape isn’t even fair.

We can count on a clarifying statement from the Governor, no doubt. After all, that is what Hickenlooper does after all of his bloopers. He lied to the Sheriff’s about speaking to Bloomberg. Then clarified. He said he only signed one if the gun control laws because a staffer promised someone he would. Then he clarified.

From the ballot returns so far, which show a strong advantage for the GOP, I feel safe in saying I am not the only one in Colorado who has grown tired of these clarifications.

Maybe we should all get used to saying “Gov. Bob Beauprez.”
