I think I’ve figured out the sad reality behind Democrats Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Democrats drank their own Narrative.
The Democrat Narrative is that Trump et. al. are racist, hateful, and stupid. So they go full-goose-bozo with hate and stupidity.
Omar’s antisemitism covers the hate, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez covers the stupidity. THIS is the Democrat election strategy.
This would be such great material for a modern-day Laugh In or a truly independent Saturday Night Live. As things stand? It reminds me of the Rodney Dangerfield joke about a visit with his doctor…
Rodney: OK, Doc, how do I stand?
Doc: That’s what puzzles me.
I, Orvan Taurus, do hereby announce my NON-candidacy for the Office of President of the United States of America. There have been those who have tried to get somewhere as “write-ins.” I make no such attempt. If anything, consider mine perhaps the first “write-out” candidacy. I have no party affiliation. My (non) platform, including any and all campaign promises (there are none, really!) is summed up as follows:
[I’m Orvan Taurus, and I approve this message. I ought to, I wrote the danged thing!]
 And I’m not running for Dog Catcher, either.
Looking at how our alleged news media has (mis)handled and (mis)reported anything Trump has been fascinating in a “Look at the trainwreck!” sort of way. It’s been pointed out (by Dinesh D’Souza and presumably others) that what is telling is not that there are errors, those happen, but that the errors have all fallen in the same direction. Mistakes are random; Bias is not. And time after embarrassing time, things that are “too good to check” fail to check out, and aren’t caught or acknowledged until after publication or transmission and reproof by people doing the media’s job for them – actually checking up on things.
It’s like watching an Animaniacs cartoon. The Warners are doing their thing, whatever it might be, and someone gets annoyed or upset about it and goes to throw them out. We see the Warners being picked up. We see them taken to the door. We see them beginning to be pitched out… and next we see the view from outside where the thrower instead sails out the door, in utter bafflement at how the reversal occurred.
