Recall Polis 2021 Promises 400% Less Fail This Time

Keeping tabs on what’s become a perennial distraction for Colorado’s more excitable far-right Republican whacktivists, the twice-failed but going for three campaign to qualify a recall question against Gov. Jared Polis for the statewide ballot. Next month, the Recall Polis campaign is back with 400% more…of everything!

Starting with punctuation!

So, we don’t know who this “Newsome” fellow they’re talking about is, but to be clear once again California’s Gov. Gavin Newsom is facing what’s shaping up to be another historic clown show recall election in due to proportionately far lower required signatures to qualify relative to our two states’ population. Gathering 1.6 million signatures in a state of 40 million people is actually a much more attainable goal than in Colorado, where over 600,000 signatures are needed in a state with only 6 million residents.

But that’s not going to stop the Recall Polis 2021 campaign from trying, no doubt hoping a little bit of the energy from California’s recall circus will rub off on Colorado. There’s big money to be raised and paid out no matter what happens, which as we know from the previous two failed attempts is enough reason all by itself to have another go.

And above all, don’t be fooled by imitators–of which there are so very many:

‘Recall Polis 2021’ is the only current recall campaign of Colorado Governor Jared Polis

‘Recall Polis 2021’ is not affiliated with:

Official Recall Polis
RecallPolis (fraudulently collecting donations)
Coloradans Against Jared Polis
Friends of Recall Colorado Governor Jared Polis
Recall Jared Polis 2020
Recall Jared Polis 2021

So to recap, “Recall Polis 2021” is the only Recall Polis campaign you should send your welfare check to, definitely not to those ripoff artist bastards at “Recall JARED Polis 2021.” There are no “Friends of” the real recall campaign, the “Official Recall Polis” campaign is not official, and whatever you do do not donate to because they’re “fraudulently collecting donations.”

Third time’s a charm, folks! No, really.

    400% x 0 = 0

    Still a big dud

    …and their dipsticks still won't reach the oil pan.

    We're not those bastards at Recall Jared Polis.

    I know the truth doesn't really matter in recall campaigns, but does Polis actually have anything to do with the PAUSE Act?

    • Conserv. Head Banger says:

      I haven't read that Polis or his office has any position on the PAUSE Act.

      I know some of you like to talk about the RWNJs. It would seem that you progressives have your own share of the NJs, like those pushing the PAUSE ballot initiative.

      • 2Jung2Die says:

        I'm not one of the ones who talks a lot about NJs of any type, but I hope PAUSE doesn't make the ballot. The gray wolf measure passed by a super-narrow margin, and there have been problems since. Funding wasn't identified in detail, a lot of the areas it would actually affect were and are deeply opposed, and I'd guess a lot of people cast votes without really truly understanding what they were doing. Not that that's uncommon with ballot measures, but I could see some of the same pitfalls ahead with PAUSE.

    """"4 times"""" as many is a 300%%%% improvement ( . . . . but not at math, apparently) . . . .

    Punctuation!!!! and percentages!!!!

    . . . methinks these cretins were failing bigly in school long before Polis????

    There is no approved recall petition, according to the Secretary of State's webpage.  Seems like recruiting volunteers for a campaign beginning in 21 days, 4 hours — it must be true, they have a countdown clock! —  might want to nail down that approval.

    Need 25% of the 2,525,062 votes cast:  631,266 signatures from those eligible to vote in the recall election (citizen, resident, 18+ years).  Figuring 1/4 spoilage, withdrawals, etc., that is about 790,000. 

    The announcement says they will have at least 6,500 volunteers (because we all know political operatives can predict how many volunteers will appear).  If every volunteer is gathering signatures, that's only 120 signatures each. 

    I'm hoping they have some sort of clever graphic to show progress to their goal — elevation gain from Colorado Springs to the top of Pikes Peak is about 8,000 feet.  So, for every 100 signatures turned in, they can move the counter up a foot…..

      Clever graphics (or what they perceive as clever)  are their forte. They love their memes over there. The newest one is about the Gates divorce and has sent them down a rabbit hole they'll never escape.
