Gilding the Lilly?

Here's a Ron Paul endorsed candidate. George Lilly. He's beem 15 years in the American Constitution Party. But now, inspired by Ron Paul's presidential run the Denver businessman, who rejoined the Republican fold in February, is gearing up for another shot at longtime incumbent Diana DeGette in the 1st Congressional District.

Lilly says, "I was enticed by the fact that Ron Paul was running for President, and that brought me back to the party. As they say, I didn't leave the party - it left me." How many times have we heard that before?

On a lighter note, he has some hobbies. Hobbies used to mean things like card games, stamp collecting, etc. Now it seems to mean any activity not connected with gainful employment. So weight lifting is one of his hobbies (too strenuous to be a hobby!), as is taking naps on Sunday afternoon (too somnolent to be a hobby!) and religion. I would have thought he would want this on a higher plain than a mere hobby. I put that down to journalistic waywardness!

So folks of Denver. You've got George Lilly on your patch! He's one for the House, surely?
