Tiger Beat’s morning email tells us that the GOP is embracing a conspiracy theory of Deep State cannibal-pedophiles operating out of a non-existent basement of a very real pizza parlor:
House GOP leaders are embracing their party’s controversial nominee in Colorado, Lauren Boebert, despite ties to the QAnon conspiracy theory, the Washington Post reports. Boebert pulled off a surprising upset against five-term Rep. Scott Tipton — despite a Trump endorsement.
Per WaPo, Boebert is the “ninth individual to win the Republican nomination for a seat in the House or Senate who is either a full supporter of the QAnon movement or has voiced support for some of its tenets.” (The FBI, by the way, has labeled QAnon as a potential domestic terrorist threat.)

So there’s at least some good news buried in this story: The good news is that Scott Tipton had the invaluable endorsement from Prznint Stupid. This strongly says that Colorado is not in Lord Damp Nut’s grasp.
