The Morning Briefing: It's Official—Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Is Utterly Useless

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Politics of Nothing

Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I frequently dream about chocolate silk pie.

Spring has sprung here in the Sonoran Desert. Temperatures are in the 90s now. Pretty soon it will be a hundred jillion degrees every day until Halloween.

The heat can bring about some clarity. One tends to focus on the essentials when extra energy is sapped by the sun. I’m not saying that we desert folk are inherently wiser, it’s just that we have a knack for pushing unnecessary things to the side. A reality distillation, sort of.

We here at the Kruiser Morning Briefing like to disparage Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a lot. Mostly because she’s an airhead idiot who the leftists have managed to elevate to goddess status and she makes the mocking so easy to do.

AOC is the epitome of all that is wrong with the digital, social media age. She has the IQ of a baboon’s armpit but has become the gold standard of Democratic politics because she’s made herself social-media famous. If you’re of the opinion that a big Twitter presence carries some kind of street cred, that’s cool. If you’re hanging out in the real world, here is the deal about AOC: she’s a paste eater’s paste eater.

AOC wields power in the Democratic Party because she is louder than everyone else. She takes her obnoxious, whiny girl act to all of the left-leaning social media platforms and terrifies the elders of the Democrat village with her power to get attention from the young ones.

In reality, America’s Dumbest Bartender isn’t getting a lot done.

Rick has the story:

She’s got millions of followers on Twitter. The media hangs on her every word. She is credited — fairly or unfairly — with jumpstarting the radical transformation of the Democratic Party. She makes extremism cool.

She’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, member of Congress representing the Bronx, and a proud Puerto Rican/Hispanic/Woman/ green/ socialist.

According to a study by the non-partisan Center for Effective Lawmaking, she’s also an incompetent radical. AOC was rated 230 out of 240 Democratic congresspeople based on some simple, but telling, criteria.

Simply put: AOC doesn’t do her job very well.

Given her actual professional incompetence, it’s stunning how much influence she has. She’s so bad at what she does that one wonders whether she could even pour a shot without screwing it up back in her bartender days. The lefties love her though.

What’s scary is that this limited brain cell camera hog could end up being the most powerful person in America if the Democrats succeed in making our election process a mail-in ballot fraud fest. The nation is currently being spared because Bartender McDitz doesn’t meet the constitutional age requirement to be president.

Given the heated anti-American vibe of the Biden presidency, the Constitution may not last much longer.

We can take comfort in the fact that AOC hasn’t been able to advance much of her lunacy via legislation thus far. She is, however, very good at making other people do her work for her.

Therein lies the danger.

I Need to Share This

Our own Stacey Lennox wrote an absolutely brilliant post about the situation in Georgia. She lives there, and her perspective is invaluable.

Here is Stacey’s conclusion, which should be shared far and wide:

It is past time for Republicans to force Georgia politicians like Abrams and Warnock to get down to issues and the details of how their decisions affect Georgia families. Their “Jim Crow” narrative is tired, an insult to the state and from the middle of the last century. It degrades the suffering of those who lived through it, memories of those who changed it, and the people living in the state today. They only use it to avoid talking about the implications of the policies they support and vote for.
