2020 Jerk of the Year: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

There have been many candidates for this year's Golden Penguin award, but in the end, I have selected New York Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Ever since this then-29-year-old barmaid splashed on the scene in 2018, she has made an embarrassment out of herself and her Democrat party. She quickly linked up with three other radical Congresswomen, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley, to form what is called the "Squad", a latter-day version of the Four Horsewomen of the Apocalypse. Ocasio-Cortez even came out with something called "The Green New Deal", a utopian world without vehicles, airplanes, or oil, which many of the older Democrats have decided is just a swell idea.

This brain-dead bimbo-yes, bimbo- not only thinks she is the smartest person in Congress, but she has taken "pushy" to a new level. Far from playing the role of freshman, she wants the leadership of her party, and the Dems being what they are, she just may have it soon. In case you are wondering, yes- she was re-elected in November by the brain-dead denizens of her Bronx district. Another round, Sweetie!

That this woman has no concept of democracy has been most recently shown when she came out with a statement after the election in November that any Republican who was connected to the Trump administration should be blacklisted from politics forever.

Unfortunately, it looks like AOC is going to be around awhile. But then again, so will the Golden Penguin. You can win it more than once, you know.

Just ask Hillary Clinton.

I'll give Jerk of the Year to the guy who downplayed a pandemic, refuses to concede an election, and asks his followers to send him money to help him overturn an election (which is actually going to pay his bills from his super spreader rallies).

My favorite thing about AOC is how much she triggers those on the right. Absolutely no substance and much name calling here. I can likely find nearly identical screeds on every right wing blog in existence. (There are legit complaints about the Green New Deal, but what you described only exists in right wing nightmares.)

To date, I have never chosen a US president as Jerk of the Year though I have been tempted. Something about trivializing the award, as if it isn't trivial enough. One could also argue that there is nobody in Washington more trivial than AOC.

If she's trivial, the right sure has turned her into the Boogieman.

And I think that anyone who's trying to overturn the results of an election is a jerk.

Not everybody can be the Fousesquawk Jerk of the Year. Only one Golden Penguin per year. If you want to defend AOC, be my guest. It's your reputation, not mine.

Be honest. If Biden had lost and was behaving the same way, it would be no contest.

Gary Fouse said...

Yes, except that there were credible accusations of voter fraud in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit and Milwaukee. I would hope that if Trump had won under those conditions, I would object as well.

There were not credible accusations of voter fraud. That's simply not true.

They had over 50 attempts to prove it in court, and they were all thrown out. (With the exception of one, which didn't amount to any sort of real change one way or the other.)

Stop repeating this lie.
