McInnis: I Only Plagiarize With THIS Hand

We commented previously on the unfortunate theme of plagiarism-tainted GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis’ newest TV spot, where McInnis proudly holds up a pen and declares it to be the one he’ll use to veto stuff with. Predictably, the jokes about whether or not that’s the pen he used to defraud a Colorado Supreme Court justice were not far behind.

Well apparently, McInnis isn’t even honest about the hand he uses to write with? What gives?

The image on the left is from a forum last fall filmed by the People’s Press Collective. On the right, McInnis is holding the pen he says he’ll use to veto legislation in his latest ad. In the left image, McInnis is writing with his right hand, but in his TV spot he’s holding the pen with his left hand.

At the risk of offending any southpaws in the community, a poll follows.

Why would McInnis hold his pen with his left hand in his latest TV spot?

    is that a picture of Scott McInnis makes me sigh with relief because it’s not related to that US Senate Primary stuff.  

  2. BlueCat says:

    Too silly to be very amusing. Besides, with McInnis this kind of stretch is so superfluous.

    at Shyne’s suggestion.

    All directors are commies.

    This a subliminal message.

    Apparently Michael Bennet isn’t honest about time because he can clearly be seen here wearing a watch. This is very important because it reads 4:35 and blah blah blah honesty and something something time.

      I’m right-handed but always rein with my left. You?

        Left handed and usually write with my left hand (can write with the right, but not in cursive) but the right hand feels more natural for most things in the sporting/athletic category. I usually ride in a snaffle bit with two hands, but I rein with the right if I’m using a curb. I throw with my right hand but bat left-handed, and I can play ping-pong either way.

        There are a lot of lefties in my family and I’ve noticed most of us are at least somewhat ambidextrous, as are some of the right-handers. I think many older people who are naturally left-handed can also write with the right hand, thanks to being force to write that way in primary school.

    Sorry, I was just getting this conversation back on track. I actually thought this was funny until I read the comments and saw everybody buzzkilling it. Lighten the fuck up, k?

    The picture on the left is from before the “image consultant” got a hold of him. With the mustache, and the old hair, Scooter was a righty. Post-makeover, he’s a southpaw.

    Done and done.
