Caption These Photos: Republican Springtime Fashion

In Rep. Doug Lamborn’s case, it’s neither a spring thing nor gilets jaunes protestwear, just safety first touring the aerospace department at Purdue University last Friday:

At least Lamborn didn’t make like Mike Pence and lay hands on the panel labeled “DO NOT TOUCH.” In fact, it looks like Lamborn kept his hands in his pockets the whole time.

Around anything expensive, breakable, or explodable, that’s the best policy for Lamborn.

Yellow is a fine color for safety vests, but the ensemble Rep. Ryan Armagost is rocking on the first full day of spring in the Colorado House (below) is nothing short of exceptional. To be clear we don’t mean “exceptional” in a good way, but rather in the deeply frightening to children sense:

We’re sorry to say that the garish yellow three-piece suit worn by an unsmiling man who looks like he’s announcing the start of a blood feud against someone in the room he is staring at, complete with not just one but two AR-15 lapel pins, did not elicit the happy springtime feels Rep. Armagost was hoping for from colleagues and onlookers. He looks more like the Easter Bunny’s hitman.

Take over, gentle readers. They’re here for your viewing pleasure.

    Is it my imagination or does Lamborn look a lot like the former Republican House Denny Hastert?

    As for Rep. Amagost, he looks like one of the pod people in “Invasion of the Body Snatchers.”

  2. bullshit! says:

    The best part is how Armagost almost certainly has a real gun under that outfit.

    America FUCK YEAH

    Lamborn majorly showing the importance of vertical stripes for looking thin.

    Armagost: GUNS! I mean they are guns.

    Jennings: The response we were looking for was 'what are guns?'. Please frame your response in the form of a question. 

    Armagost: guns?

    Modeling here, from D-block’s “Proud Boys Spring 2023 Prison Escape” collection, . . .  

    .(. . . and somewhere out there probably countless dozens of homeless men are thanking god that suit is finally gone after so many years of having to see it in the shelter’s “take me” box.)

  6. kwtree says:

    Armagost forgot to wear his matching hood.

    Also, what’s with the T shirt under the suit? Does he have a bow tie stashed? Is he secretly imitating Governot Polis? Who wore it best?

    Doug's thinking: "What's that smell?  Did I just shit in my pants again?  The leakage was bad enough."

  8. Early Worm says:

    They are both paying homage to one of the country's greatest public servants of the last 50 years.

    OH NOW I GET IT! It's 2 pictures of Doug Lamborn but at first it really looked like one picture of 2 Dougs Lamborn in the same room.

    As for Amagost's fashion tragedy, he looks like Col. Sanders' dirty underling. We'll call him Major Dumas (but nobody pronounces it "doo-mas"). If that suit doesn't have a AR-15 sling built into it, it's a mistake. Has anyone checked with GOP leadership of Amagost has the required amount of flair? I think he needs more pins. What a fucking doozy.

  10. NOV GOP meltdown says:

    Doug Lamborn is finally wearing an outfit for a job he might actually be qualified for.

    Amagost shows the Easter Bunny is real!
