The gun-slinging Congresswoman from Rifle, Colorado Struts Her Stuff

Members of the House Freedom Caucus offer political writers low-hanging fruit every day. If Matt Gaetz is not getting accused of more sex trafficking, Louie Gohmert is asking the Forest Service to change earth’s orbit to address climate change. And Marjorie Taylor Greene can be counted on to randomly refer to her political opponents as Nazis.

But the queen of the Freedom Caucus zoo is gun-loving Congresswoman Lauren Boebert. She’s not quite as clever as some of her friends, but she tries. If you doubt this, look at three tweets issued by Boebert within a 10-hour period on July 7.

I am not with Boebert. I am a bit concerned about the ‘Delta variant’ of the virus, which is now the dominant strain in the U.S. Because too many of us have failed to get fully vaccinated, President Biden recognizes that another lockdown may be necessary. That doesn’t strike me as stupid.
