UPDATE: What, me worry?
Gardner walks in for his meeting with Amy Coney Barrett – the only Republican senator who did not do a formal media avail as he met with the Supreme Court nominee

In early 2016, Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma) flat-out refused to even MEET with Merrick Garland, President Obama’s choice to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) created by the death of Antonin Scalia. Gardner told anyone who would listen that it would be wrong to hold confirmation hearings for another SCOTUS nominee when the next election was just nine months away.
Now it’s 2020, and the election is just a few weeks away, but Gardner suddenly has no problem filling a vacant SCOTUS seat. Hell, he doesn’t even need to wait for the process to play out.
Gardner was scheduled to meet today with Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett, but before that meeting could even take place, he told The Durango Herald that he had already decided to support her confirmation:
“Right now … I plan to vote for her,” Gardner said Tuesday morning.
Gardner has gone from refusing to meet with Obama’s SCOTUS choice to pledging his support for Trump’s SCOTUS choice before he even meets with her.
It’s looking like Gardner will not be re-elected in November, so the Yuma Republican has apparently decided that he will no longer even pretend that he takes his job as a U.S. Senator seriously. If there is a bottom to Gardner’s depravity, we haven’t found it yet.
why should he
I don't know. But it just tells me he knows he's fucked and he doesn't care. Your response tells me that you know he's fucked and you don't care.
At least we've got the hypocrisy out of the way. It was all about power anyway. Screw serving all Coloradans. If his vote helps overturn Roe vs Wade then he was a good soldier and will willingly collect his lobbyist fees. What a putz.
But the Denver Post solemnly told us 6 years ago that Gardner would not do that.
The only rag worse than the Denver Post is the Denver Gazette.
I signed up for the free trial.
They ran an editorial from the Washington Examiner. I stopped reading.
Isn't that the publication owned by Rev. Moon's church?
The Gazette, Full blown endorsement of the walking dead senator, full on support for the new justice, and every day is an op ed or two or three from the Wash Examiner. I gave them a chance and OMG they are more over the top than I had feared.
