Tom Martino? Ken Salazar? Who is Colorado's biggest turkey?

Who's the biggest turkey of the year? With the election season barely over, it's easy to focus on all the pundits who insisted Colorado's swing-state vote would decide the election -- when Barack Obama had already won his second term before our polling places closed. But there are many, many more gobblers out there, and right now, Peter Boyles is hosting his annual Imaginary Thanksgiving Day Parade on 630 KHOW, with plenty of turkeys along that route.

In fact, one of Boyles's colleagues, Tom Martino, who has questions about Michael Roberts's balls, is definitely a candidate for Colorado's top turkey. But so is Ken Salazar, who threatened to punch another reporter.

Mother Nature was a bitch to Colorado this year, but humans made plenty of their own mistakes, too. We're rounding up a flock of the biggest gobblers of 2012, and will serve them up tomorrow, in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Win, Place, Show:  Mike Rosen, Petey Boyles, Tom Martino.


There are many to add to this list such as Dave Logan & the Denver Post's entire editorial staff !


What about Boyles himself? The non-stop birtherism and other conspiracy theories on his show bring out the worst of the worst of talk radio listeners.


You should have Ex Govs Ritter and Owens in there for there pathetic "Stop 64" ads. 


Not a fan of either but Ken Salazar! That was not a mere isolated incident.  I happened to work at the CO AG's office when he was there.  I personally witnessed Salazar rip on a coworker much in the same way he did that reporter.   How he addresses and treat others (especially underlings) says a great deal about what kind of man he really is.  Also, Salazar is in a much higher position in which to influence and set policy.   Took a week to apologize - probably only because it was going to break in the news.  Martino has always been an insufferable blowhard and fairly easy to see for what he is.  Salazar tries to put on a different public persona.  For these reasons I think Salazar is the bigger turkey.
