That's the word in an awesome shareable graphic now making the rounds:


We assume it's Scott Gessler's long awaited announcement that he's running for Governor, but it could be the hat.

    Holy Deer and Antelope get that man a lasso! And some Copenhagen!  He looks an honest to goodness real 100% genuine poser!

    Yeah, the hat says he's running for Governor.He wants to appeal to the rural Colorado voters. Good. We need a real Secretary of State. 

  3. Davie says:

    What's he got in his hands?  Looks like he can barely contain his excitement!

    Ok, now this is gonna sound crazy – but just bare with me. 

    This is the ultimate trolling ever. He's not running for Governor. He's not running for re-election as SOS. He's not even running for the Senate. Scott Gessler has decided to take his talents to the 1st Congressional Distirct to take on Diana DeGette surprise

    Oh snap, it would be the greatest of trollings. If wishing made it so… 

  5. Um, Mr. Gessler – you might want to put your name on the flier somewhere.

    That begs to be photoshopped with a horse…

  7. Moderatus says:

    He looks better in a cowboy hat than the Bartender in Chief…

  8. mamajama55 says:

    What was that someone said to caption Baumgardner's biking pic? "All hat and no horse."

  9. Hawkeye-X says:

    In other words, a Teabagger darling. That'll siphon votes from real Republicans… which are becoming endangered now with the vermin of the Teabag.


    Yeah, he's going to thump Frackenlooper…. *NOT*..

    719 phone number?
    I know most of us don't pay for "long distance" anymore, but some people still do.
    Where is the 800 number?

    Hm… I wonder if September 17th, he'll out himself as pro-gay. Why? it's that PINK shirt he's wearing! No real cowboy would wear that!!!11111oneleventy

    There's some folks who should never, ever wear a cowboy hat . . .


    . . . and, by that I mean everyone — every single person — who's not an actual honest-to-god, for-reals cowboy!!!!

      By honest-to god,for-reals cowboy I'd presume you mean one of the dying breed of horse cowboys and not a windshield cowboy of which Gessler looks the prototype.That straw cboy hat has definitely spent more time sitting on the seat of a pickup than on his head and I'd doubt it's ever even seen a horse.

      • Diogenesdemar says:

        I've gotta say, langelomisteriso (damn — that's a long screen name, if I do say so) it's been so long since I've seen one, I'm not sure I even remember what an "honest-to-god, for-reals cowboy" is anymore . . . 

        I do know this for sure that it's not what is (so-called) these days a "country-western singer," and that it damn sure never was, . . . and never will be . . . anyone of that ilk who aspire to political office!!

          Diogenes- You'd smell an honest- to-god-for reals horse cowboy long before you saw one.They'd have real organic male bovine material on their boots and smell a bit like horse sweat and  have slightly bowed legs I think I might have seen one or two over on the west Slope where they still remember such things on occasion. Definitely total agreement with your last statement. I expect a horse might scare the crap out of Gessler.

    nothing says Cowboy more than sporting a pair of pin stripe Sans-a-belt dress pants and a heather pink spread collar — Pard'ner sure cleans up for the camera don't he.

  14. VanDammer says:

    Doesn't "Cable Center and Denver University" sound odd?  The folks that work Events Services and the tech side of the house just call it The Cable Center and might add "at DU" or "on Denver University" but what is with the "…and Denver University?".  Sure doesn't read correctly

    and good for boot-scootin' Scottie giving buddy Big Oil Bob a little rubber chicken circuit work.  

    • Diogenesdemar says:

      Almost as odd as, . . . "to do opening remarks" . . . 

      Maybe — "Opening remarks by . . . " — or — "opening remarks from . . . " — but — "to do . . ." ????

      The whole damn thing looks and sounds like it was put together by a fourth-grader the night before class elections!

    There is a University of Denver.  There are Denver universities.  There is no "Denver University."
