Dear Rep. Boebert,
You and I have a couple of things in common—not much, but something. First: I too have been thrown out of a theater, and it was in all the papers, though in my case it was good for my (nonexistent) political career, while your shenanigans seem to be hurting yours. Second: I was, for a time, a resident of the House district you represent—not in ritzy Aspen, but in the relatively hardscrabble town of Craig, known as the elk-hunting capital of the world where the main businesses (in my time there) were coal and a gas-pipeline project.
While the very real possibility that you will lose your House seat—either to a primary challenger or in the general as Colorado trends Democratic—sinks in, you have been speaking hopefully of “a lot of mercy and a lot of grace,” as though being deprived of these were your problem.
That isn’t your problem.
