Organizing For…You Know…

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez appeared on MsNBC with Chris Hayes last week ago to discus her views on how to properly represent her constituents in Congress. Alex Parker at Redstate spotted a jarring similarity between Ms. Know-Nothing and another amazingly clueless young lady: Miss Teen South Carolina 2007:

Of course Caitlin was running for a beauty contest title and Alexandra is running for, well, you know. But her answer is equally epic: (from Redstate)

On October 5th, Alexandria appeared on MSNBC to let loose a few more syllables to…well…you’ll see.

Host Chris Hayes gushed:

“How are you going get along with these people in Washington? I mean, I think you’re going to win. That’s a prediction I’m making. … You’re going there. …[I]t’s broken, it’s so polarized. … And you’re coming, really, as an outsider at a moment when people, like, are watching what happened today and want to storm the gates, and you’re going to actually do that.”

Why in the world would he tell her she’s going to storm the gates? She appears unable to storm a paper sack with a coherent thought. As he suggested her gates-taking prowess, she nodded and smiled, topped with the cherry of an optimistic “Mmm hmm.”


I’m wincing.

And then, Chris did the worst thing he could do — he asked something.

“What’s your plan here?”

To quote 1988’s Funny Farm (a movie I highly recommend), “Cue the deer” (in the headlights):


“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, and inside the beltway as, you know, you always hear that term thrown around.”

Oh boy…

“But there are very few organizers in Congress. And I do think organizers operate differently — it’s a different kind of strategy. And what it is is really about organizing. And really thinking about that word — organizing — segmenting people.”


“Being strategic in their actions. And really bringing together a cohesive strategy of putting pressure on the chamber, instead of only focusing on the pressures inside the chamber.”

Is she talking about heart surgery?

Hayes reacted with praise:

“That’s a really interesting thought.”

Uh, no. It’s not. Either of those words.

Watch, if you’d like:

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.”

Of course the last know-nothing idiot who thought that organizing-for-action was the highest calling ended up as president.
