Controversial GOP Rep. Judy Reyher has been officially sworn into the Colorado General Assembly, as the Colorado House Republicans informed us yesterday in a congratulatory Tweet–providing final confirmation that Republicans will welcome a representative who thinks among a host of other gold-nugget views that “the black community and the Democrats are the most racist group of people that exist” and “I hated the black half of Obama as much as I hated the white half.”

It’s going to be a “colorful” 2018 legislative session, folks! With that in mind, can somebody identify for us the colorful jacket Reyher is wearing? One theory we heard is that it’s a map, and we’re looking at the area where Nebraska, Wyoming and Colorado meet. It could be representative of a local civic organization from the Arkansas River Valley, or some other kind of club outfit. Perhaps it’s the official uniform of the “six months later they conjure up a birth certificate and we’re all supposed to fall for it” club? That’s another quote by the way.
It’s not like we want to offend whatever group of people this coat represents by saddling them with all the crazy things Reyher said that made her infamous. Much like the GOP brand as a whole, Reyher did that all by herself.
If Reyher’s dreadful fashion choice has no symbolic meaning behind it whatsoever, we’re…just sorry.
