Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner recently authored two provisions to the NASA Transition Authorization Act that would support Colorado’s blossoming aerospace industry. Sounds like a good thing, right? KDVR political reporter Joe St. George turned a great thing for Colorado into a hit on Gardner.
Maybe he was trying to be funny, maybe he was trying to make Gardner look nuts, but perennial comms guru Mike Saccone, who is no Republican apologist, by the way, nailed it on the head:

The real story, from the KDVR post:
“In a press release, Gardner highlighted the end goal of the provisions is to create new jobs, saying ‘aerospace plays a major role in Colorado’s economy, and this legislation will benefit the thousands of aerospace jobs in Colorado.'”
And the media wonders why its credibility is in the tank.
