Special Discount Code: #MYPILLOWFAIL

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

The much-balleyhooed rally at the Colorado State Capitol featuring “MyPillow” guy Mike Lindell along with some of Colorado’s leading Donald Trump dead-ender diehards like Secretary of State candidate Tina Peters and U.S. Senate candidate Ron Hanks kicked off at noon as promised today, but we regret to inform any hoping otherwise that revolution is unlikely to ensue:

Crowd estimates vary, but that looks to us like somewhere around 100 patriots at the high end. Small in number though they may have been, attendees at today’s rally more than made up for it with such amazing material for Democratic retransmission as this:

It’s not the first time we’ve said it, but if Clerk Peters had competent representation in her criminal case where she is facing multiple felony charges in her failed attempt to prove the “Big Lie” that the 2020 election was stolen, they would advise her to not go anywhere near a bunch of people freely confessing to breaking “those laws” on her behalf. Peters’ supporters don’t care that they’re admitting to the commission of a crime, because they wrongly believe a higher ideal was being served. And the guileless incrimination apparently didn’t stop there:

Considering the possible six months Peters faces locked up for contempt of court, followed up the prospect of many years in prison for the crimes she stands accused of, a ginormous violation of Colorado’s ethics in government law Amendment 41–we think it’s the biggest since the law’s passage back in 2006–is perhaps the least of her troubles. But we’re still talking about an awful lot of money, especially if the Independent Ethics Commission imposes a fine twice that amount. An ethics complaint on the question of Peters’ “legal defense fund” is pending, but now they have a figure to work with–and, well it’s a doozy. Still unresolved besides is the amount of money Lindell spent hiding Peters out last August and September.

But none of this matters at today’s rally. This is a celebration of faith. None of it’s going to keep Tina Peters out of prison, or override Colorado’s ethics in government laws, but her folk hero status is at this point cemented.

For a few hundred very passionate people and one very rich pillow guy, anyway.

  1. Great recap by Zelinger in his tweet.  According to Zelinger’s commentary, Lindell got served with a lawsuit from Eric Croomer for defamation just before Lindell was scheduled to speak. Big difference between $65 and $800,000.  That’s going to be a tough one to explain away.

      Epic. I wanna shake that process server's hand.

    1. Any hint from those covering the "rally" to suggest there was a response from the bipartisan group of county clerks who said "put up or shut up" ?? Any assurance they are with Donald and his announcement on April 2, 2022 that

      it's coming out this 'Truth to Vote,' where they found all the thousands and thousands of ballot harvesters. You've seen that. 'Truth to Vote.' But when you see that – that's coming out in two weeks – when you see those numbers, I think it's four or five million people cheating. Those numbers are coming out.

      The DK column pointed out "Trump referred to "Truth to Vote," he was mangling the name of the wholly discreditable conspiracy crackpots at "True the Vote,"  So, sometime before Tax Day on the 18th … somebody is going to have numbers.
