11 Definitive Reasons Bill Maher Should #FlipADistrict In Colorado

Bill Maher plans to pick one congressional district to flip this Fall. Here are 11 reasons Colorado Congressman Mike Coffman should win.

1. Current Representative Mike Coffman sucks at push-ups

Rule #1 for doing push-ups in the airport: don't look like you're dry humping the carpet.

2. He also thinks legal weed is bad for Colorado

3. He Hates Gays (And Their Weddings)

First he voted to keep that terrible Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy that kept LGBT people from serving openly in the military. Then when we finally got rid of DADT, he worked to ban gay weddings from military facilities. Mike Coffman hates gay weddings. Come on!

4. This Birth Control Brain Fart

Two simple words: Birth. Control. They really shouldn't be *that* hard to remember.

6. Then Followed It Up With This Classic Media #Fail

He repeated it over and over and over and over again.

Seriously, watch the video. It's amazing.

Awkward.

7. Coffman Represents the District Where the Aurora Theater Shooting Happened. He Still Doesn't Support Background Checks for All Gun Purchases

The families of the victims aren't too happy with Coffman about this.

Dan (Caplis of 630 KHOW radio show), I would deeply appreciate it if, during your show, you could state that I wanted to make sure that my position was clear, unequivocally, that I oppose abortion in all cases of rape and incest. I believe that all life is equally sacred irregardless of how it came into being.

9. He's *That* English-Only Guy

Coffman thinks ballots should be printed in English only. His response to voters who don't speak English as a first language? "They ought to pull out a dictionary." Did we mention his district has a LARGE Hispanic population?

10. Coffman Likes to Pretend Climate Change isn't a Thing

Rep. Mike Coffman, another Colorado Republican, said: "Climate change is naturally occurring. What influence do we have over that, we certainly need to look into, but that's subject to debate."

11. He Hangs Around With the Wrong Crowd

Mike Coffman and his BFF Tom Tancredo. Tancredo is the former presidential candidate best known as the guy who said that President Obama is a greater threat to the US than Al-Qaeda, that the US should bomb Mecca, and referred to the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sontamayor as part of "a Latino KKK".
