CO-04 Democratic challenger Angie Paccione has posted her first TV spot on her website, and it's pretty darned good.
- Links incumbent GOP hate-lady Marilyn Musgrave to Bush (using our own version of "the Kiss").
- Hits hard on special interest control on important issues (energy, healthcare).
- But... Angie stays away from calling herself a Democrat.
Not a bad first effort in a difficult district.

From the Rocky Mountain News and other sources, Rep. Joel Hefley - recently deposed from his Ethics Committee chairmanship, will retire in 2006 after a 20-year stay in office.
The retirement opens up CO-5, the most reliably Republican district in Colorado. The district is home to Focus on the Family, New Life Church, and no fewer than 4 military bases (including the Air Force Academy). Jay Fawcett is the declared Democrat in the race - one of the Fighting Dems and a former Air Force Academy instructor.
