Congresswoman-elect Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert has been one of the leading voices in Colorado parroting President Trump’s numerous fact-free claims of election fraud. Not that she actually understands any of what she is saying. Take a look at what Boebert Tweeted this afternoon before deleting it less than an hour later — after many comments like this:
Fortunately for Boebert’s edification, Marshall Zelinger of 9News had a very succinct answer for her:
As you’ll see in our story tonight regarding Colorado, the state which you’ll be representing, the 9 Democratic electors cast their votes for Biden since he won Colorado. Had Trump won Colorado, the 9 Republican electors would have cast their votes for Trump. #copolitics https://t.co/GhNNqGS33c

Yes, you’re reading this correctly. Boebert has absolutely no idea how the Electoral College works, but she’s mad as hell about it not working correctly for President Trump!
And as The New York Times reported this afternoon:
Frankly, it’s a little confusing that Boebert is even worried about the Electoral College, because she has her own theory about how Presidents get elected in the United States:
I told the president to keep fighting & use every bit of authority our Constitution grants.

Boebert often yells loudly, on social media and on Fox News, that the election isn’t over. She legitimately seems to believe that Trump is actually the rightful winner and should be preparing for a second term in office. Either she doesn’t understand how elections work in the United States, or she thinks there is some benefit in making it look like she doesn’t understand how elections work in the United States.
And Lauren Boebert is going to be an actual Member of Congress in a few weeks.
Lauren Boebert is quite possibly the stupidest person ever elected to Congress. Way to go, CO-3, way to go.
More stupid than Louie Gohmert from TX? That's saying something!
Maybe even stupider that Ron Johnson.
It's a very low bar, though. Time alone will tell if Qbert can limbo her way under it.
There are several mathematic measuers where equivalence or relative difference has no meaning.
Infinity. Euhler's. and others
I like to think of people trying to rebuild the transmission on a 1951 Chevy. maybe the accountant can count the parts. Maybe the landscaper can degrease some stuff. But neither is gonna get the car in gear.
She is unfit – except in one way. She is an American citizen she is old enough.
However, as spokes person for her party and view, she should do more photo ops than comments until she gets it figured out.
Gohmert's a moron, but at least he's a moron with a Doctorate and four years in the Armed Forces. Boebert's a moron whose only experience is in poisoning customers and spending a few nights behind bars.
What an absolute maroon.
Careful. If she sees what you've posted, she may wonder why you're referring to the Maroon Bells.
More like "Talk First, Think Never".
Well, I have some sympathy for her.
As she has a GED—which some people consider less than a high school diploma—she is not likely to attend the ivy-covered halls of the Electoral College.
I think she would be intimidated by all the brainiacs there.
I thought she'd want to be a cheerleader for the football team at E.C.
She would've been if that vote hadn't been rigged against her . . .
She makes Sarah Palin look like Marie Curie.
She's the new and improved Sarah Palin. Younger and Dumber.
Every single person in CD3 who voted for Willfullyignorantbert should be ashamed. I suppose many of them just don't know any better, or don't care.
"You gotta' remember . . ."
You're making that up.
If so – well done.
If not… what?
…swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States …
hey…don't look at me…I live in CD3 and I am not surprised…I tried my best, with getting out the vote, but still, ya can't fix stupid…
The "Legend of "Calamity Jane" Boebert" will outshine the "Laura Bradford Faceplant" in western Colorado political lore in very short order.
That is a prediction…
She also eclipses Janet "Bestiality Rant" Rowland.
Don't count Rowland out, unfortunately. She won her Mesa County commissioner race and is back for another eight years of embarrassment.
You can't make this stuff up.
. . . but, apparently, she can.
Anyone have a source who can reveal what questions Rep.-elect Boebert asked at new member orientation sessions?
I’m thinking there could be a new series, with multiple episodes, using the tone of VEEPor the long-ago TV series Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
Perhaps it could be called
Rep: Ms. Lauren Boebert Goes to Washington
Might as well also cut an album: "The Miseducation of Lauryn
And, here I thought that it was not PC to pick on a re-re.
She’s an insult to GED recipients.
BTW – She may have been referencing GOP electors from VA I believe, who tried to enter their Capitol building to “vote”.
Also BTW – this post was highlighted on the national site Politicalwire.com
(John is correct about MI)
the incident I saw was Michigan … where the government offices were closed due to a "credible threat" of violence and where electors and the few needed officials were given police escorts for their trip in. The officer at the door turned the Republican electors away, as they were not on the list to be admitted. He also refused to accept an envelope which apparently contained their "certificates of election."
I wonder who "certified" them? Rudy Giuliani? Sidney Powell? Q himself?
Jenna Ellis and Lin Wood.
Ken Buck needs to find his copy of Congress for Dummies to give to Boebert.
It's probably like new, never even opened, maybe still in the shrink-wrap.
Didn't he return it to Lamborn?
Honest question here: why devote so much air time to airheads like Q-bert (and Trump)? She's a dumber than a fence-post turtle. Leave her alone, and she'll die an inglorious death.
We are slaves to Big Media and celebrities.
Why does anyone care about a lot of people in politics now or before? (see above)
I miss Paul Wellstone a lot. And Al Franken. Bill Bradley. Paul Simon. Jerry Brown. Colin Powell. and a thousand others. I'm gonna miss Orion Samuelson.
No media for them. So we get to kvetch and spout off on (___insert your famous/notorious choice___)
Kim Kardashian gets more political ink than most of my faves.
Dumber than? She is a post turtle.
