That’s Our Junior Senator!

Bloomberg’s Erik Wasson reports via the Twitters this morning:

Showing the courage Colorado voters have come to expect from their accountability-averse junior Republican Senator, Cory Gardner appears to have made a much bigger spectacle of himself by fleeing Capitol reporters than he would have by delivering a few rote talking points about the shutdown. Then again, the trouble could easily be that Gardner has no workable talking points for the shutdown, being cornered between supporting President Donald Trump like a good Republican and answering to Colorado voters who just rejected Trump in historic fashion at the polls.

Whichever it was, Cory Gardner running through the Capitol looking for an exit, then screeching away from pursuing reporters, is a metaphor for his entire career in the U.S. Senate. We’ll update with video.

Please, let there be video.

    Pity there wasn't a photograph or video to start the development of an on-going meme.

    The flat Cory that showed up at occasions this past year may need to be adapted with wheels and a motor, a la the Spicey podium.

    He was the only Senator in the Capitol today. If it was that important for him to be there, why not talk to reporters about it? Why was he there? I bet some enterprising reporter took video of him fleeing the interview.

    When is Cory doing another town hall in Durango? The last one went so well.

    Brave Sir Cory ran away
    Bravely ran away away
    When journ'lists reared their ugly heads 
    He bravely turned his tail and fled
    Yes, brave Sir Cory turned about 
    And gallantly he chickened out
    Swiftly taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat
    Bravest of the brave, Sir Cory

    Once again, Cory lives down to my expectations.
