It’s good to get actual confirmation that the Freedom Caucus folks are actually entertainers. We’ve basically known it all along, but it’s always good to hear the truth from the horse’s mouth. Lauren Boebert was on Fox News and the host asked her why she acted the way she did that fated night in Denver at a performance of Beetlejuice. “Did the play get you excited?” (I think he meant horny/) He asked that after he asked her if she had had too much to drink. This entire clip runs over 5:00 but if you want to get to the good part, forward to 2:19.
“It’s been twenty years since I was in the dating scene.” I don’t think she did a lot of “dating.” She was working at Burger King when her future husband, a 22-year-old oil rig worker, asked the 16-year-old out and the rest is history. I doubt that they went to the theater. The drive-in movie, most probably, but not the theater. Maybe Bobo doesn’t know that the code of behavior is a trifle different?
In any event, the part I love is, “It is my responsibility to bring levity to my constituents’ lives, never gravity.” I wonder, seriously, if this was how the job was explained to her. That’s it’s a PR job, it’s all sound bites and entertainment. Say what you will about Mitt Romney, I give him credit for pouring over the Constitution and studying it before making the decision to vote to remove Trump. That’s what Boebert’s job is, too, but no way in hell she’s going to do it. She’s a paid entertainer. Maybe she can get her pension from the Screen Actor’s Guild rather than the U.S. government (God forbid she should be reelected and qualify for one.) And granted, political theater is its own kind of amusement, always has been, but for a lawmaker to vow “to bring levity?” To say that’s their responsibility? OMG.
She also says that she has ended the relationship with the Aspen bar owner who was her date and that “all date nights are canceled.” I wonder what the sudden turn around to a monkish existence is?
I loved the bit at the end where Jesse forgave her, ahhhh, absolution from a Fox News high priest. Now she has been publicly exonerated, by the mercy of almighty News Corp., hallowed be its name. Now all is well in MAGAdonia.
Let’s vote her out and get somebody in whose responsibility is to be a hardworking and effective lawmaker, not to entertain. Adam for Colorado. Donate.
