Courtesy the Shooters Grill Twitters, this is a photo from last September in Rifle, Colorado, of embattled GOP Sen. Cory Gardner and now-CD-3 GOP nominee Lauren Boebert. This was taken before Boebert challenged Rep. Scott Tipton in the GOP CD-3 primary in December–otherwise you can be assured that Gardner would not have consented to a promotional photo with the candidate not endorsed by Gardner’s boss Donald Trump.
Now that Boebert has shocked the Slope by ousting Tipton after his somnolent decade in Congress, though, Gardner and Boebert are ticketmates way up high on the November 2020 ballot! Under normal circumstances that would mean lots of joint appearances between now and then.
But as our readers know, Lauren Boebert…has baggage. Cory Gardner has enough problems without having to answer for Boebert’s fringy pronouncements on the way to icepicking Tipton’s political career–and certainly no time for, as they are known colloquially, “the trots.”
Enjoy the photo, gentle readers, because it might be the only one of its kind.
But, Cory is smiling as he thinks about gutting your Medicare.
Stinkin' government Medicare doesn't get any traction in Rifle Dave. Irrational gun paranoia does.
Two years from now:
“Remember these two? Yeah, neither do we.”
Cory is content to follow Trump anywhere … so Trump's "great victory" tweet about the Boebert win will insure cooperation from Cory.
Virus, you know what to do!
Smile ! One of our lucky contestants is headed to K Street !

"Is that your piece, Cory, or are you only just sorta happy to be seen with me?"
We are both toast.
