President Biden delivered his first State of the Union speech two weeks ago today. Colorado Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert IS STILL TALKING ABOUT IT.
Polling shows that Biden got a nice little bump following the SOTU speech, which became noteworthy also because of the childish antics of Boebert and fellow Qaucus member Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene both screaming at Biden. The infamous picture of Boebert and Greene turned into quite the popular meme.
As The New York Times wrote two days after the SOTU speech, these images of Boebert and MTG were not helpful to the Republican Party:
Like most normal people, you’ve probably already moved on from this incident.
Lauren Boebert is not like most normal people:
Sporting a new look, Boebert recounts the incident where she yelled out during SOTU. She talks about Pelosi telling her to shut up, then says the mom of a “lieutenant corporal” (there’s no such thing) wrote her to thank her. pic.twitter.com/0WFuy1PLI8

Boebert complains in the video above that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her to “shut up” following her SOTU outburst. She neglects to mention that Pelosi’s comments, which were made the day after the speech, were referencing the fact that South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham appeared to mouth the same words immediately after Boebert and Greene’s outburst.
Boebert can read all of the pretend letters she wants — it only makes her look MORE ridiculous. Now would be a good time for her to instead hunker down and focus on her actual job, but that’s probably too much to ask.
"Lieutenant Corporal John ("Bonespurs") Barron reporting for duty ma'am!" . . .
And Pols keeps talking about that thing Lauren Boebert keeps talking about that she did. Perhaps it's time for all of us to move on.
Screw that. This dumb district is a gold mine. I think we should mock her till they either wise up and get someone new or mock her till shes the last republican in the country.
Honestly, what gold are we mining there? Mocking her hasn't moved the needle in CD3 and isn't likely to. It's not likely to have much impact on state races, either. If the "gold" you're referring to is fundraising gold, perhaps but money raised and spent to run against something is never as successful as money raised and spent for something. Look what happened to McAuliffe.
lolz, there is no such rank as "Lieutenant Corporal."
It's Lance Colonel.

Going two minutes without attention is completely intolerable for her.
