What do you do when your Republican opponent has refused three debates, and has stated that he doesn’t intend to debate you at all? Debate anyway, with the coward replaced by three men in chicken suits, of course!
Thursday’s Colorado 5th Congressional district debate got clucking insane when Halter was forced to tell a large crowd that his opponent had once again failed to give voters an opportunity to compare the two candidates — something one would expect from someone who just last year called the President a “tar baby.”
“Even if some people say, ‘Well the Republicans should have done this or they should have done that,’ they will hold the President responsible.Now, I don’t even want to have to be associated with him,” Halter said in an appearance on AM radio. “It’s like touching a tar baby…and you get it, you’re stuck, and you’re a part of the problem now and you can’t get away.” More recently, Lamborn encouraged military leaders to commit sedition.
At Thursday’s debate, Lamborn was replaced by three men who perfectly exemplify his primary value: cowardice, and the Congressman was livid!
“It’s unfortunate that my opponent seems to be involving himself in uncivil if not ridiculous stunts. To me it smells of desperation,” said the chicken who avoids public debate.
For his part, Halter says he had no involvement in setting up the hilarious replacement. “We had nothing to do with setting this up but we certainly hoped while looking for a debate and hoping Mr. Lamborn would show up we decided to participate,” said the Congressional hopeful.
