Ocasio-Cortez for Speaker of the House?
2018-11-22
h/t Instapundit
[TheBlackSphere] ...Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was still celebrating her victory in New York’s 14th Congressional District Tuesday night when she was asked her thoughts on becoming speaker in the Democratic-controlled House.

The 29-year-old laughed, and told Amy Goodman of the left-wing news program Democracy Now, "I mean, I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew."

Goodman had asked Ocasio-Cortez her stance on Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) returning as House speaker.

"Who do you think needs to lead the House?," she asked. "And would you consider the possibility of being the speaker ... yourself?"

"I mean, I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew," Ocasio-Cortez laughed. "I just won my seat."

"But, you know, what I do think is that in terms of her leadership in context, we need to see what our options are," she continued. "You know, my fear is, I just wouldn’t want to see candidates running to her right, and that being our only option."

#7  I thought we reached peak stupid with Obama.

There is no peak stupid. As they say, the only difference between genius and stupidity is that there s a limit to genius.
