Our view: We agree with the Twitter soldier who told Polis to "tell those a—holes in congress to cut out this stupid sh— and get some actual work done.”
Jared Polis is a joke. He really and truly is.
We will spare you a long rendition of critical commentary, because Polis' embarrassing idiocy speaks for itself.
Politico, per yesterday afternoon:
Rep. Jared Polis took to the social news Web site on Monday to promote his candidacy in the “Member Online All-Star Competition,” an annual contest put on by Democratic Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) in which lawmakers compete to gain the most new Facebook likes, Twitter followers and YouTube subscribers over a three-week period.
Ever since posting his plea, he’s been responding to candid questions and colorfully worded comments — nearly 1,000 of them, at last count.
“So if u wanna help me and give me more internet glory and karma among members of Congress, please upvote this post and most importantly like my facebook page and follow my twitter,” the Colorado Democrat wrote in the post, adding, “Isn’t it cute we have contests like this in Congress?”
A user named “empathaticbitch” didn’t think it was so cute, writing, “Honest to fu——- god, tell those a—holes in congress to cut out this stupid sh— and get some actual work done.”
Jared, get a life, grow up, and quit acting like a spoiled little billionaire. You are a Congressman. Do something for America, and quit acting like an a– hole.
