Sam Levin's coverage of Mitt Romney's appearance at Red Rocks spurred plenty of comments, many of which broke down along partisan lines. But one of our readers chose to eschew ideology in favor of an endorsement for something pretty much everyone can agree on about now. Here's his take.

The best part of the election will be when it's over. I know we like to pretend we have a voice and choosing a president is important, but it's really just to keep us distracted. No matter who "wins", the American people are still stuck with a giant douche or a turd sandwich. Our lives will not change but don't worry, when you realize the person you voted for is a schmuck, you can get all excited for voting for someone else to make your life better every 4 years.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
