Aspiring Speaker of the House Lauren Boebert (R-Colo)

Last week U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) hinted at her future goals during an interview with Newsmax TV.

“But, you know, maybe one day when I’m Speaker of the House, my first action will be to take those metal detectors and use them as target practice,” Boebert said, referring to security devices installed by Democrats to ensure that no guns are brought to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, where guns are banned.

Boebert was answering questions from a giddy Newsmax anchor about her dedication to concealed-carrying a firearm within the U.S. Capitol.

“In the congressional complex, I am my own security… until I get into Pelosi’s House — it’s certainly not the people’s House — where we have to go through the metal detectors,” Boebert said.

One GOP colleague already supports Boebert’s nascent campaign for Speaker. U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) tweeted that Boebert “would make a fantastic Speaker of the House.”

On Sunday, Gaetz tried to distract from the ongoing federal probe into his involvement with a sex trafficking ring by promoting baseless claims of election fraud.

U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) supports Boebert for Speaker.

Many of Boebert’s actions and comments appear to be aimed at getting media attention—and her line about being Speaker of the House may have been made in the same vein.

Last week, Boebert was in the news for falsely claiming Trump stopped Hamas from attacking Israel, falsely claiming there had been no deaths from COVID-19 in Texas post-mask restrictions, and for opposing the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

    "Wait, there's more to the job than just speaking a lot?" says the ignoramus, upon learning what the job actually entails.

    Who am I kidding, as if she'd ever allow herself to be educated on a subject!

      First requirement for becoming Speaker — getting re-elected in 2022. 

      There are a few others after that.  starting with getting enough Republicans elected to form a majority.  Which ought to include something about "diminish the chance of voters seeing the Republican Conference as lickspittles and incompetents."

    At what point are the writers for Schitt’s Creek unable to continue sitting on their hands and launch Schitter’s Grill?  This stuff just writes itself, and Fluffy could get a moonlighting gig as a consultant.
