Wake-Up Call: Scott McInnis website shows how the West was lost

Scott McInnis, who's really the frontrunner for governor now, doesn't know his mountain ranges, and he apparently doesn't know his Western art, either.

This summer, the Republican gubernatorial candidate took a hit when his campaign website debuted with a lovely panorama of the Rockies -- the Canadian Rockies, as it turned out.

The site also includes a photo gallery of "Images of Colorado," including one photo labeled "Delta." But it's really the wonderful mural of a guitar-playing cowboy painted on the side of 1617 Wazee Street, where Western watercolorist Willie Matthews, a Stock Show favorite, has had his gallery for twenty years.

While the Democrats scramble for a new gubernatorial candidate, maybe McInnis can brush up on his geography -- and art history.
