Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez when it comes to public discourse is sort of like a drunk that would frequent a bar you might stop at one or two times a week after work to have a beer and watch a baseball game at that has a penchant for telling tall tales or getting things totally wrong.
It’s the type of person that stretches the truth so far that you could almost hear the truth saying that it grip is slipping and they are going to fall off the side of the cliff any moment. Sure, she is the youngest woman that’s ever been elected to Congress but it wasn’t all that long ago that a woman got elected that was not more than a year older than her. It’s sort of like someone that says they are the older twin when they were born five minutes sooner or something.
Sure, you are by the slimmest or margins but if you are going to split hairs like that you might as well not say anything at all. Call me back when someone that’s only nineteen gets elected to Congress on that one.
Also, from the time you are in school they tell you what branches of government there are. Shoot, School House Rock has been trying to do that since the 1970s so there’s no excuse for someone that is getting elected to office not know the most basic things about how our government works. You wouldn’t expect someone that bought a car to know how to repair a fuel pump on the first day but you’d at least hope they know how to pump gas and check the oil.
All that Cortez is going to do is create little snippets that prove how off the chain Democrats have gone. When it comes to the moderate voters and Democrats that might be on the fence of where they stand politically they are going to eventually end up smacking their heads while saying “you have got to be kidding me” at the same time whenever she says something so ridiculous that they even have to acknowledge it.
From Western Journal:
“We’ve done it,” she told a gaggle of supporters. “We’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.”
Yep, you heard that right. The election of a few “democratic socialists” is just like a few hundred thousand people coming together to plant an American flag on the moon, or the forced-passage of the civil rights act against the wishes of the Democratic party.
Here she is, in all her new-found glory:
Talk about a lack of self awareness.
Really. I mean really. That’s like comparing the moon landing to a drive from New York to Florida, cutting your finger to a woman giving birth and me running a marathon to walking to my mailbox.
