Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being buried.
First and foremost, she is being buried by herself, based on one ignorant, imbecilic comment after another, just about every day.
But now, the Democrat Party – realizing that her “wit and wisdom” is so bizarre that media, which usually can be counted on to run cover for them, is reporting her words because their entertainment value generates viewership/readership – is conducting its own burial.
From Marisa Schultz’s article for the New York Post:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal.
Ocasio-Cortez sought a spot on the committee—which is usually off limits to freshman reps – with the backing of progressive groups that pushed for a slate of fresh-faced candidates to earn posh assignments.
Ms. Ocasio-Cortez’s predecessor, Joe Crowley, had a seat on that committee. So, I suppose she felt she should get one too, and have a platform to give “free” stuff away, by the tens of billions of dollars, without worrying about the fact that, in the real world, someone pays for every dollar of that “free stuff.
Too bad. Maybe next time.
As for the “progressive groups” that wanted her there? Too bad for them too. s much as they have taken over the Democrat Party and lurched it leftward, this is a lurch too far…at least for now.
But don’t worry. As long as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continues to regale us with her puerile, fairy-tale view of the world, and it continues to bump up viewership/sell newspapers, it will be reported.
Think of her as the Democrat version of a three-legged chicken. Bizarre and ridiculous, but everyone looks.
