    It snowed in February in Colorado. In other unsurprising news, Rep. Boebert said something stupid about the Constitution.

      It's a mystery … does she not know the history of the Constitution and that many of the original Founders were among the proponents of the Bill of Rights??  Forgot about 27 ratified amendments?  Not understand what the Supreme Court rulings do?

      More importantly, why would citizens of CO-3 think expressions like this are appropriate for their Representative?

        It's like trying to understand the mind of a mad man John.  Sane people can't understand the insane.  If you can understand his/her insanity then you are probably also insane.  I have conservative friends who think having a closed mind is a virtue.  It's hopeless talking to them.

          Aye. I think so.

          Is someone telling them (the Orange Horde) that people who want to share the truth with them are conspiring to brainwash them? I heard the words…”you’re trying to get me to think like you do”, when trying to offer that the Covid vaccines are not “experimental”. 

          Offering real information about the subject arouses a suspicion you are in cahoots with Anthony Fauci, or such nonsense.

          Such mental contrivances are impossible to decipher, as they are, as you say, insane.

      Meanwhile in Salt Lake City the RNC had some deep thoughts…

      WASHINGTON — The Republican Party on Friday officially declared the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol and events that led to it “legitimate political discourse,” formally rebuking two lawmakers in the party who have been most outspoken in condemning the deadly riot and the role of Donald J. Trump in spreading the election lies that fueled it.

      The Republican National Committee’s overwhelming voice vote to censure Representatives Liz Cheney of Wyoming and Adam Kinzinger of Illinois at its winter meeting in Salt Lake City culminated more than a year of vacillation, which started with party leaders condemning the Capitol attackand Mr. Trump’s conduct, then shifted to downplaying and denying it.

      On Friday, the party went further in a resolution slamming Ms. Cheney and Mr. Kinzinger for taking part in the House investigation of the assault, saying they were participating in “persecution of ordinary citizens engaged in legitimate political discourse.”

    She’s apparently never taken the shrink wrap off her copy of Congress for Dummies. 

    Why would anybody think she’d take it off her copy of Constitution for Dummies.

    Another day on pins and needles waiting for the number 1 political story in Colorado politics in 2021.  It better be some of Pols best collective writing.  I can't wait to read it.

    Because of course the people banning books have sexual “issues”  and don’t understand consent.
