Again: the stink won't wash off. Enjoy your Scarlett Letter.

Goldey, by contrast, has a more establishment pedigree. He was the press secretary at the Department of Interior until this year, and previously worked for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

I wonder if her insisting that her staff would confirm her mother's location during the insurrection helped him make his decision.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Again: the stink won't wash off. Enjoy your Scarlett Letter.


Ben Goldey previously worked for Mitch McConnell, so he doesn't care about ethics, morals  or the best interest of the US. Kinda surprised because if a member is kicked out of the House their staff stays as caretakers and paid  until a special election fills the seat.

I wonder if we're about to find out who gave a tour of the Capitol?

Why do you need a secretary when most of your communication is just grunts?

What's the point of trying to carefully script and manage a public image if these reps are willing to just say all the quiet parts out loud.

Even Bosiskel is dodging Boebert's calls now.

Goldey lasted less than 2 weeks, and didn't even bother to update his LinkedIn
 
2021-01-16 5:40:54 PM  
It's hard to believe she even HAD a communication director considering how many times she's put her foot in her mouth over the last fortnight.

I am really looking forward to watching her go down. She has bugged me since day one in the worst way.

My first thought was: she had a communications director? It's frankly shocking that anyone was in charge of the nonsense she regularly spewed forth.

But I hope he never gets another job.

He knew what he was getting into, he knew who she was, he just didn't care until it became bad for his career.

Wait. Wait. Sorry. I read that wrong.

Boeberts is absolutely bonkers, her parents must be proud of themselves for the outstanding job they did in farking her up.

We need a database like LinkedIn for those people. Searchable by name, deed and geolocation.

Kinda makes me wonder how he fscked up so bad he ended up working for a freshman with no political history. That's the best offer he could get?

Her mother was so proud she of her that she was there.

Hard to be a communications director when the only message is "AAAGGGHHH GUNS, SOCIALISM, TRUMP, FAKE NEWS"

Yeah, she was the lady in the hat with the megaphone yelling in the window, giving the other insurrectionist's instructions on how to better access the building

Greene and Boebert are guilty.

Be sure to tell potential employers that you were in an asylum being treated for cannibalistic tendencies and a fondness for bestiality. It's more respectable than what you really did.
 
2021-01-16 7:59:02 PM  
Looks like Lauren Boebert's Mom was the lady with the bullhorn directing rioters. She is going to be busted hard.

And might little Lauren have given Mommy a tour to get her ready for the attack? Probably.

Consequences are coming.

She likes to drive fast and she likes to fail to appear at court it seems.

The one that really bothers me is apparently she drives around with her kids and no car seat/seatbelts on them. She should rot for that.

What about her indicates she's even listened to anyone or anything in her life that she disagreed with? Certainly she has a restraining order on reality.  He may have tried to shape a message for her, but she's likely to just have been "what's all this bullshiat about laws and governance and shiat? I'm here to look pretty and talk about guns and hating liberals, that's all I need!"

It wouldn't be surprising, but someone tweeting something isn't exactly evidence.
 
2021-01-16 8:03:31 PM  
It's not like Boebert needs a staff as she isn't going to do anything as a representative besides go on Fox anti-News to demonstrate why she's unfit for public office. That is if she doesn't get kicked out and/or indicted.

"Rep. Boebert has hired a powerhouse team, filled all staff positions in her office and hit the ground running. Rep. Boebert looks forwarding to focusing on and serving the interests of the people of the Third Congressional District."

Sedition and violence is not in their interests.

The vast majority of her district were likely cheering on the insurrection.

Sacrificing the safety of your kids because "muh rights"?!

These people are goddam warped.

When acting like a defiant toddler becomes an ideology.

So it looks like she's mostly a habitual traffic offender and a*hole to police when she gets pulled over.  Not exactly a hardened criminal -- just an a*hole.  All those driving violations scream "traffic signs are mostly suggestions" and "it's always your right of way if you're brave enough".  I assume that's more or less the attitude she takes towards any authority around her, so I'm sure the senior republicans in Congress are just thrilled to have her at the bottom of their hierarchy.

I hope we get to watch her be arrested.  I think she'd probably try to go down kicking and swinging.
 
2021-01-16 8:08:25 PM  
Her and that Greene lady. They have absolutely no idea how govt works beyond watching fox news and the Rs all screaming all the time about everything. They *think* they are doing it right. They think the quiet part out loud is the key to success.

I bet when they mentioned committees she was all like "committee? what dat?"

I would enjoy it if she was arrested for her crimes, also looks like her mom was bullhorn lady because nobody else fits the bill.

That's why he quit.

Now you go out and say this like this with this amount of pity and don't forget the victim part...
Fark you! You're not my boss!
