How could radio host resist asking Beauprez if he really thought Hick was drunk during pool game with Obama?

(Seriously? – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

“Both Ways” Bob Beauprez (right).

Bob Beauprez suggested over the weekend that Hickenlooper was drunk when he played pool last week with President Obama.

Beauprez made the comment on Craig Silverman's debut radio show Saturday on KNUS 710-AM. Here's the exchange:

Silverman: Bob Beauprez, tell me this, because you could lock up a lot of votes if you give the right answer. Can you play pool better than John Hickenlooper?

Beauprez: [hearty laugh]

Silverman: I mean, it went – did you watch him play? He looked like he was sick!—like there was poison in his beer. He scratched, and he missed one of the easiest shots in the world. Tell me you can do better, because he got beat on his home tavern court by Barack Obama. That’s the first foreign victory for Obama in a long time. And –

Beauprez: [laugh]

Silverman: I mean, it looked like Obama was having a good time, but – I don’t know, how do you think that all went down?

Beauprez: John might have been at the brewery a little bit ahead of the President. He might have gotten an early start on the beers. [BigMedia emphasis]

Silverman: Yeah.

Beauprez: Yeah, that wasn’t his finest moment.

LISTEN: Beauprez Suggests Hick was drunk when playing pool with Obama

It's possible Beauprez was joking, I admit, but if he was, it's not clear at all. If you're Silverman, how could you resist asking Beauprez if he was seriously suggesting that Hick was drunk.

    For gawd's sake, Jason. Lighten up.

    Gotta agree with Gertie — it does appear to be a fairly light joke on BWB's part.

    But, Beauprez should be careful no one jokingly suggests he might need a mental competency exam based on his wacko comments and surprising lapses.

    Why would anyone be concerned by this?  The "foreign victory" crack is more snide, and it's not even worth worrying about.  If this is what's gonna drive us to clutch the pearls, it's going to be a looong election season for the left.

  4. OrangeFreeOrangeFree says:

    It was obviously a joke. Only the GOP has the proper level if disrespect for the office to show up drunk before meeting with POTUS.

    Jeebus –  I have'nt heard Silverman's nasal whine since several years ago (when he was a semi-regular panelist on Colorado Inside Out), and now just reading his name I can hear that caterwaul again . . .

    Do you think probably his burned out septum and damaged vocal cords came from snorting all those drugs?

    I AM OUTRAGED!  How dare anyone suggest that Hickenlooper has drunken too much of anything?

    Oh PUH LEEZ – Beauprez makes a joking comment and Jason  takes him seriously?  EGADS – the writer has lost his jugment!  Perhaps jason himself had too much to drink?
