Mike Coffman, Republicans Reach New Level of Absurdity

Republican Congressman Mike Coffman has been in elected office for 30 years, but it’s looking more and more like his political career has reached the end of the line in 2018. Multiple public polls have shown Coffman trailing Democrat Jason Crow by significant margins (Coffman has even released internal polls that show him losing), and national Republican backers are pulling out of CO-6 — a clear sign that Coffman is considered to be a lost cause as the GOP scrambles to find some way to hold on to their House majority.

Coffman’s own desperation is palpable. Long known as a politician who will take every position on every issue, Coffman hammered the panic button recently when said that he would even consider supporting impeachment proceedings against President Trump (never mind the fact that Coffman has voted with Trump 96% of the time in Congress).

But Coffman and Colorado Republicans aren’t done yet. They managed to raise the ridiculous bar another few feet with this new mailer:

In case you can’t see the embedded image, we’re talking about a mail piece paid for by the Colorado Republican Party that talks about how Coffman stands up to the Republican Party. Of course, Coffman doesn’t actually “stand up” to the Republican Party, but the very idea that the State GOP is pushing this message is almost too absurd to believe.

Almost too absurd to believe.

      I think I do know what you mean, BS.  wink

      If he loses his Congressional seat and is unemployed, do you think he will try to reopen the divorce and get spousal maintenance from the Taller Coffman?

    Mike Coffman is light years ahead of the competition and it drives the Democrats crazy. When he wins re-election Colorado Pols is going to cry their eyes out.

      Funny that most sites say his seat is likely D and the current Siena poll thus far has him 7 points down.  I won't rule him out.  But I won't rule out his defeat either, especially in the current situation where he seems to be consistently behind, even in his own internals. 

      And since I am not excessively prideful and also not excessively stupid, I will say, IF Coffman loses, I will constantly remind you of this post every time you show your inbred ass around here.

      Like they are crying their eyes out over Cynthia Coffman's big win?
