In Which Boebert Hugs Her Own Scandals A Bit Too Tightly

We’re not even sure what it was specifically in reference to, another culture-war petrol bomb chucked into the Twitterverse by freshman GOP outrage transshipment agent Rep. Lauren Boebert this weekend because, well, it was Saturday:

As our readers and anybody who wants to do the Googling to discover knows, there’s a small problem with Boebert condemning anybody on this planet for sexual “grooming” behavior. It’s actually not a small problem, in fact it’s a very large problem, consequentially if not physically. And for whatever reason, yesterday’s random outburst from Boebert has provoked an unusually high-profile clapback reminding Boebert of the nature of her problem:

In response to Boebert’s Tweet decrying the “far left’s” “grooming bullcrap,” Boebert was treated to hundreds upon hundreds of responses linking to the Salon story from last August that thoroughly documented Jayson Boebert’s conviction for public indecency after exposing his genitals to young women at a bowling alley in western Colorado in 2004. It wasn’t the first story on that incident, but it remains the most thorough and highest-circulation retelling.

By now you’re probably asking yourself if you haven’t already: what kind of idiot would invite this withering re-examination of their own record upon themselves by accusing their opponents of something they themselves carry as baggage?

The answer, as we’ve explored a few times, is that Boebert deliberately chooses lines of attack that closely parallel her own scandals as a strategy to confound her critics. Sexual impropriety is just one particularly lurid among many such examples, including Boebert’s payday loans out of her campaign account and railing against the January 6th insurrection investigation Boebert is more or less a target of.

It’s a strategy that works for awhile, like it often did for Donald Trump, until it doesn’t.

And on the issue of “grooming” kids, it has stopped working for Lauren Boebert.

    Ans speaking of Bimbobert…..

    What is no one doing this:   Judge signals sympathy to challenge to Marjorie Taylor Greene's candidacy (   in Colorado CD-3?

    If they can do it in North Carolina and in Georgia, we can do it in Colorado. Anyone in here live in CD-3 and want to take it on?

    Ms. Boebert and her colleagues on the far right are confused. One doesn't "groom" another person to be gay. It's either in their genetic makeup or it isn't. One can, however, groom a young person to be a racist, a church-goer, a person who donates to people in need, etc. There, it's all in how one is brought up by their parents.

      That is also the answer to Ted Cruz’ famous question.

      Q:  Do you think babies are born racist, Judge Jackson?

      A:  No senator, they are not born racist. They learn that from their parents.

    I'm so confused. I remember all those "No Hippies and Longhairs" signs from the 60s and 70s. I thought the right hated the far left because they didn't groom their children?
