Humorless Ken Gordon

We are just getting to know Ken Gordon, which is a good thing if one is going to write about him. We're finding several references that suggest that others think that Ken Gordon is a humorless individual.

A commenter on a Denver Post article said:
[ Ken ] Gordon could become a happier man if he gets the secretary of state job…
And Colorado Senate News had this jewel:

Sen. Steve Johnson, R-Fort Collins, who joined in the laughter as fellow Republican Sen. Greg Brophy of Wray recounted his recent run-ins with traffic cops. The Senate was debating the expansion of Colorado's seat-belt law.

"Even Gordon's funny today."

Johnson, only moments later, when normally dour Senate Majority Leader Ken Gordon, D-Denver, followed up with a wisecrack at the podium.

That might explain why Ken Gordon lost the Secretary of State race in 2006 when so many Democrats won in other statewide races. It might be that the only way he can get into the office is via appointment.
