(TeaParty.org) – “Whoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.” Proverbs 21:23.
While we somehow doubt Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez adheres to the proverbial wisdom of the Bible, this is one universal principle concept she might want to take to heart.
Because boy, does she get herself in trouble every time she opens her mouth. Mostly by exposing how little there is between her ears, though.
The doe-eyed 28-year-old Democratic Socialist Congressional candidate from New York has certainly blessed us with many hilarious gaffes since her surprise primary win, but it’s getting a little troubling that they just keep coming.
She seems consistently unable to prove she knows anything at all about government…or about anything at all, really.
During a recent appearance on MSNBC, friendly host Chris Hayes tossed her an incredibly soft question about her agenda, which she proceeded to answer by drawing on random words she knows are associated with politics and scrambling them all together to say…absolutely nothing at all.
“You’re going in there at a time when people are talking about how it’s broken, how polarized, both of which I think are true,” Hays said, setting her up.
“And you’re also coming really as an outside at a moment when people are watching what happened today (with Brett Kavanaugh) and want to storm the gates, and you’re going to actually do that,” he continued.
“So what’s your plan here?” he offered.
Since AOC decided a long time ago to, you know, run for Congress and everything, you think she would know exactly what to say.
She clearly didn’t.
“Well, I think a lot of it has to do with changing our strategy around governance. You know, there’s a lot of inside baseball, inside the beltway, as you always hear that term thrown around,” she began.
I’d say this is a mixed metaphor…but I’m not entirely sure it’s even a metaphor. Inside baseball? Is that a thing? That’s not a thing.
“But … there are very few organizers in Congress. And I do think that organizers operate differently,” she went on.
Well sure, granted that being an “organizer” isn’t really something that alone would qualify anyone for Congress, no, there aren’t a lot of “organizers” in Congress.
“It’s a different kind of strategy,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.
Oh, no. We get no specifics.
“And what it is … is really about organizing … and, and really thinking about that word ….”
Oh good grief.
“Organizing. Segmenting people,” she rambled on.
Segmenting people? Huh??
“Being strategic in their actions,” Ocasio-Cortez continued, undeterred that she had so far been clear about literally nothing. “In really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber, instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber.”
So, the most I got out of this is she thinks that people should, like, do things when they’re in Congress.
Phew, OK, whatever you say, crazy lady.
Now, it’s definitely gut-busting to hear these answers and their astounding lack of meaning, when it sinks in that this woman has a good chance of being appointed to Congress as a Representative, however, it’s pretty scary.
While the general population of leftists are violently raging in the streets, their soon-to-be elected officials are rambling on about literally nothing.
It’s like the left has turned into some big, dumb, angry animal.
