Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Hits The Target


"OCASIO-CORTEZ: "I think Kevin McCarthy has decided that his role as a minority leader in the House of Representative is to essentially be chauffeur of the clown car and he believe {SIC} that his job is to champion some of the most ludicrous, irresponsible and dangerous members of his party instead of centering some of the more even-keeled and responsible members of his party."

This transcript is extracted from a recent CNN interview.

So what is she talking about?

Here's a quick synopsis.

Back a while the Democrats voted a bill out of the House to set up a non partisan commission to investigate everything - not what Ol' Mitch and the Boys had been asserting - but the real stuff that led to the near Republic-ending insurrection of 6 January 2021.

The commission would look into things like who planned the thing, what part the president and the republican big lie supporters had in the planning - if any - and generally how exposed the Republic is to a coup in the near future.

When the bill got to the Senate the republicans killed it.

Ol' Mitch and the Boys said there was no need for an investigation, they had their best people working on it already.

The House countered, saying that there was indeed a critical need for such an investigation, and that the House would regretfully - they vastly preferred a non partisan commission such as looked into the 2001 terrorist attack and JFK's assassination - set up a select committee.

So they passed a bill setting up a select committee.

It was to be made up of twelve members, seven Democrats and five republicans.

Kevin McCarthy said that there was no need for such a committee, that there were plenty of investigations and that, anyway, if there were to be another investigation it should be investigating Nancy Pelosi for being the mastermind of the 6 January insurrection, not into anything vaguely related to reality. 

Nancy Pelosi ignored Kevin and went forward with the select committee, naming six Democrats and one Republican to the seven Democratic seats.

After massive and continued obfuscation Kevin made his five nominations, two of whom are well documented clowns who aggressively support the big lie and voted to overturn the election.

Not surprisingly Nancy refused to accept the two clowns.

Kevin said "OK if that's the way you want it we'll do our own investigation" or some such petulant inanity.

One might ask what suddenly made Kevin decide that, after continuously saying there was no need for any more investigations, he now  wants to add another one to the daily news cycle.

Kevin is not only the chauffeur of a clown car, he is the head clown.

Or, more likely, a tantrum throwing six year old.
