Politico reported from Cortez, Colorado, “A Glock on her hip and stilettos on her feet, Lauren Boebert stood behind a grocery store and waved as pickups, Harleys and Subarus flying Trump 2020 banners and Thin Blue Line American flags drove by. The procession calls itself the Montezuma County Patriots, a group of locals — fence menders, firefighters, retirees, unemployed dispatchers and others — that parades through town every weekend. This week, they steered their vehicles into a cracked asphalt parking lot and climbed out. They were here to see Boebert, a 33-year-old first-time candidate for Congress.”
Harleys and Subarus?
Her story mirrors bartender AOC’s in that Boebert owns Shooters Grill in the town of Rifle. Both women are brunettes who know how to use makeup (it is not caving to the patriarchy to look presentable). Both knocked off a long-time incumbent in a primary. And both represent the soul of their party.
