Earlier this month, local media outlets took note of a rather odd vote in the House of Representatives:
Colorado delegation on resolution supporting NATO:
Boebert (R) N
Buck (R) N
Crow (D) Y
DeGette (D) Y
Lamborn (R) Y
Neguse (D) Y
Perlmutter (D) Y#copolitics https://t.co/yyMAn3BDXJ

To the best of our recollection, neither Rep. Lauren “Q*Bert” Boebert (R-ifle) nor Rep. Ken Buck (R-Greeley) ever explained WHY they would vote against such an uncontroversial bill.
On KOA morning radio last week, however, Buck finally got caught.
KOA hosts April Zesbaugh and Marty Lenz were talking with Buck about the previous weekend’s wild GOP state assembly results when Zesbaugh tossed in a curve ball:
ZESBAUGH: On the national stage, the House recently voted on a NATO resolution calling on the U.S. government to, quote, uphold the founding principles of NATO. Sixty-three Republicans voted no on this, including your colleague Lauren Boebert. Why the no vote?
BUCK: Um…you know, I…have to think about that one…there were other things in that, um, NATO, and I don’t know if they were criticizing the U.S. military…I’m not sure what the reason was on that. But I can get back to you on that.
Why did I vote no on that bill? Beats the hell out of me!
Really, really great work, Congressman Buck. You make us proud here in Colorado.
The Worthless POS voting "Nay" comes as no surprise but it's a pleasant surprise to see that Lamborn Has Pro-NATO-like Qualities.
I'm sure Dave "Let's Go Brandon" Williams will castigate Lamborn for being a Toady to Biden, Macron, Zelinsky, George Soros, multilateralism, and Jewish Space Laser.
Perhaps Ken Buck was having a senior moment. Like Dianne Feinstein, maybe he has stayed too long at the fair.
The other possibility is that Buck doesn't have a Yes button on his desk.
He’ll check with Politburo and get back to us. Vlad will know why he told him to vote no.
BUCK: April, it's simple I need to look more right wing to continue to be in the Republican party. As a coward I will abandon all principle and values to protect myself.
ZESBAUGH: I'm surprised by the candor
BUCK: I called Republicans irrational the last interview, did you think I believed them to be smart? The only thing they care about is my willing slavery.
So, Ken, you're OK with that blatant fascism? I know it's confusing to those in your party. Even Doug Lamborn figured it out. Chat with him, please.
