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!
He either needs a bigger head or a smaller hat. OMG, did I say he needs a bigger head?
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.
What's he got in his hands? Looks like he can barely contain his excitement!
In his hands? It looks to be pretty small. Probably his sense of ethics.
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
Oh snap, it would be the greatest of trollings. If wishing made it so…
Um, Mr. Gessler – you might want to put your name on the flier somewhere.
Give the man some credit. It's in that email address!
His name is Andrew Scott Gessler!
Give the man some applause!!! </sarcasm>
That begs to be photoshopped with a horse…
This picture looks like it's been "shopped" already.
He looks better in a cowboy hat than the Bartender in Chief…
And Hick looks better as governor than the Honey Badger.
No matter how good-lookin' you think he is, Moddy, he'd be abysmal as a Governor. Luckily, that's not gonna happen, so your Gessler-centric fantasies will have to remain in the non-political realm.
. . . your man-crush is duly noted . . .
Hey, wait a minute…
Didn't Moddy also wax rhapsodic a while ago about another GOP candidate in a cowboy hat? Randy something (total porn name, btw)?
Wow, Moddy… you're GOP boy-crazy. And sooo fickle.
What was that someone said to caption Baumgardner's biking pic? "All hat and no horse."
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
Actually real rodeo coyboys do wear pink. They have a campaing supporting breast cancer and a slogan "Tough enough to wear pink."
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.
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.
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.
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!
Of course it was a fourth-grader. Who do you think puts together campaign events any more?
There is a University of Denver. There are Denver universities. There is no "Denver University."
