Episode 179: Two Republican Stories So Crazy We Couldn't Possibly Make Them Weirder

Create a political cartoon depicting a Republican primary debate in Colorado. On stage, there are nine people: 
1. A white brunette woman in her mid-30s with glasses, raising her hand.
2. A white man wearing a blue suit jacket, red tie, and red baseball hat, raising his hand.
3. A white redheaded woman with glasses, wearing a red blazer, not raising her hand.
4. A white man in his late 40s in a green suit jacket, raising his hand.
5. A white man in his early 40s with glasses, wearing a dark blue suit jacket and a pink dress shirt, raising his hand.
6. An older white man with grey hair and glasses, wearing a grey suit jacket, black dress shirt, and red tie, raising his hand.
7. A bald white man in his late 40s in a suit, not raising his hand.
8. An Asian man in his early 40s wearing a blue suit jacket, white dress shirt, and tie, not raising his hand.
9. A grey-haired bearded white man in his early 50s wearing a grey suit jacket and a bolo tie, holding up a peace sign with two fingers in the air.
The setting is a stage with American flags and campaign signs, with a crowd watching the event in a barn-like venue with a mountainous Colorado backdrop.

“For my friends, high fives during a debate celebrating our arrests. For my enemies, the law.”*

*That’s….not a direct quote from anyone specifically

Egads it’s getting weird out there.

This week on our latest episode of The Get More Smarter Podcast, the ClusterBuck in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District gets more cluster-er as the Colorado House Minority Leader cops to a DUI and a gun charge he tried to hide and one of his caucus members/leading opponents for the nomination admits to paying for an abortion for his college girlfriend during a speech he made opposing the recognition of Roe v. Wade (these sentences are, somehow, 100% accurate).

Our 8th favorite member of congress from Colorado -- who is soon to be our first favorite former member of Congress from Colorado -- lays low as she finishes unpacking after moving into what she hopes is her new district, but it won’t be, really. Lauren Boebert landed in 5th place out of 9 contenders in the straw poll after her CD4 debate that had more than it’s share of notable quoteables.

The economy is rolling, and Americans have finally noticed! And the "Fat Lady" is warming up, because Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for President after Ron DeSanctimonius dropped out and Nikki Haley got her clock cleaned in New Hampshire.
