  •  I called Coffman's office yesterday (4+ / 0-)

    The kid - excuse me, young man - who answered the phone in his DC office sounded close to tears. After I expressed my disgust with Coffman's comments, I asked if he'd taken other calls like mine; he said "all day." I told him I wasn't angry with him (the kid), but at his boss.

    He told me Coffman had apologized, and I asked him where I could find his apology - was it on Coffman's congressional web page? He said it was all over the media, though he didn't know if it was on the web page or not. (I checked - nada.)

    I finished the call by telling him to be sure to tell his boss just how angry I, and many other people, are that he would say anything so stupid and unpatriotic.

      Got a very short conversation where the intern or staffer said that the Congressman apologized and is moving on. I then inquired why would he have to apologize in the first place, what was he apologizing for if this is what he actually believed in his heart? (Silence).

      So in CO we got Lamborn saying that Obama is a tar baby and Coffman saying he is not American and patriotic---sounds like bigotry in cleaner clothes.
