He's also the pro-war chickenhawk who was too "depressed" to fight in the war he was so keen on, once upon a time. Oh, and most importantly of all, he was once utterly humiliated by our very own Markos on the Tee Vee, and then lost an epic battle with an earpiece when he tried to storm off set.
Yeah, you remember him now, don't you?
Well, turns out Tancredo, a proud Coloradan and bet-loser, will be rockin' the ganja, now that it's perfectly legal to be a stoner in his home state:
"Look, I made a bet with the producer of the film that if Amendment 64 passed (I did not think it would) that I would smoke pot," he said through his research and education institute, the Rocky Mountain Foundation. "I will therefore smoke pot under circumstances we both agree are legal under Colorado law. Hey, it's better than having to do a stupid dance as (Denver) Mayor (Michael) Hancock must perform as a result of losing a bet on the Broncos beating the Ravens."Raise your hand if this makes you hate Tancredo just a teeny tiny bit less. Because, okay, sure, he's still a loser. But at least he can lose a bet gracefully. Just remember, Tom, it's puff puff pass.
