  1. Lauren Boebert is a Worthless POS says:

    This would have been better if he had lifted himself up out of the chair right after Franklin Graham placed his hands on Cawthorn's head, muttered a prayer, and pronounced him healed.

    “Send us your yoga mats.” Ukrainian patrols carry light foam insulation mats over their heads at night so infrared detectors can’t see their body heat.

    Waiting for an update from Pols on all the intrigue at the Colorado Dems assembly on Saturday.  It’s bound to be a doozy of infighting and disarray or not.

    • JohnInDenver says:

      having sat through the Zoom webinar of the Assembly, my money is on “not.”

      There were a few unplanned actions … Joe Garcia using the chat function in an unplanned manner and promising he would not be silenced was my personal favorite.  Runner up was Morgan Carroll calling for a motion and Howard, the person who has been making most of them, wasn’t responding “so moved” immediately. 

    • Gilpin Guy says:

      My wife was very impressed with Karen Breslin.  She thought Breslin would have made a great senate candidate if Bennet wasn't running.

      • The realist says:

        But does she have elective office experience? I always wonder about the folks who decide that the first office they should run for is U.S. Senate, or Governor . . . 

        • JohnInDenver says:

          Me too … and promising "more" progressive action without explaining how that would happen in a Senate anything like what we have or are likely to get struck me as a bit of a fail, too.

    Trump family payoff: "Saudi Arabia buys off Jared Kushner for $2 Billion".

    In related news, Saudi Arabia threatens the United States, demanding that we support their attacks on Yemen or else they won't increase oil production.

    Oh, and the Koch brothers-minus-one, are working with Putin.

    • MichaelBowman says:

      Yeah.  Nothing to see here. 

      • MichaelBowman says:


        “The explanation for the absence of any American institutional investors in Mr. Kushner’s fund was that he ‘would like to avoid media attention,’ the written responses said. ‘Accordingly, Affinity has approached international investors on a very discreet basis.’”

      • Early Worm says:

        There is plenty of hypocrisy across the political spectrum, BUT, how does the right-wing noise machine not tie itself into knots hammering the Hunter Biden story, and ignoring this one? 

  5. MichaelBowman says:

    You’d think that if one’s hubby had been arrested for exposing his six inch thumb to underage girls in a bowling alley that maybe, just maybe, you’d sit this one out?  Or not wear a dress inscribed with “Drill baby, drill”“Let’s Go*uck Brandon“ Biden” displayed across your booty to Whore-a-Lago?

    Zimmerman has apparently decided not to run as a write-in for the CD-03 primary, saying she did not want to split votes. r-e-s-p-e-c-t

    • JohnInDenver says:

      Now, if there would be an explicit endorsement and a pledge to offer all of the names she gathered to Coram, it would make it even BETTER

      In the meantime, someone ought to start working with her to enter a more do-able race.  County commissioner or state legislator would be an excellent entry point for a longer political career.

    Good on Zimmerman and whoever was able to talk some sense into her.
