QUIDNUNC: Dems see Gardner with 2020 vision


Quidnunc, whose name comes from the Latin  “what now,” is out and about as often as possible  to bring you news overheard in elevators, rest rooms and spied  in various e-mail boxes.

QUID HAS HEARD that there is no rest for the wickedly burnt out voters in this state, who just recently survived an onslaught of TV political ads and Trumpster fire stories that even in backward countries would be considered cruel and unusual punishment. Sorry, my faithful readers if this fishwrapper, the 2020 Election is upon us. No sooner did the blue wave wash over a long list of Republicans, including Aurora’s seemingly indestructible Congressman Mike Coffman, than the undertow began reaching for new GOP victims. Smilin’ Cory Gardner, who always seems to be back home in Yuma where the whole world knows he’s just a friendly tractor salesman kinda guy, is top of the hit list of Twitter trolls and Democratic operatives to be washed out by the next electoral gusher. Had Coffman been able to stay afloat by having loaded his political raft with seemingly endless liberal political refugees, Gardner probably would have ditched Air Force One photo ops for grip and grins with any brown Aurora voter would let him. It did Coffman no good, which leaves Gardner only one choice: The Boat Anchor in Chief. Your faithful affiant predicts that Gardner will either survive after anyone-but-Trump wins the 2020 GOP nomination, or he will be following Coffman’s footsteps off the GOP plank and into the political abyss.
