Every generation gives way to the next one. Sometimes the old guard sticks around longer than necessary, but eventually, they end up being replaced by someone younger.
And that’s what’s happening today. Our cute little Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is becoming the new SheJack.
Don’t believe me?
Over her 20 plus years in Congress, SheJack has been known to never walk anywhere she doesn’t have to. She would have an aide idle an official vehicle, blocking traffic, etc., just so she wouldn’t have to walk the two blocks to her office at the Capitol. Often that aide would be there at the appointed time, only to have Queen Sheila take her own sweet time about coming out.
Don’t rush that Triple Crown Weave perfection, y’all.
And now we have AOC. After she declared the world was going to end in 12 years, she doubled down on her rhetoric by questioning whether it was “moral” to even have children. Frankly, I hope she never reproduces. Humanity’s overall intelligence will not be helped by her addition to the gene pool.
Apparently, Ms. AOC has a problem with walking like SheJack. Since April of 2017, her campaign listed 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone. This is despite the fact that there was a subway stop 138 feet, less than half the length of a football field, from her campaign office door.
AOC spent $29,365.70 on those emissions-spewing vehicles, along with car and van rentals — even though her Queens HQ was a one-minute walk to the train.
Remember folks, this is a woman who wants to get rid of internal combustion engines along with cow farts. Speaking of which, she got busted last week because she and a staffer were caught eating burgers! Right after she said we shouldn’t eat burgers.
After she beat the Democrat incumbent last June, AOC suddenly stopped walking the district. She had made the claim that she wore out the soles of her shoes walking the streets of Queens.
Remember that awesome shot of SheJack jogging across the pedestrian bridge over Braes Bayou near the med center? Yeah. Probably never happened. And just like that, AOC doesn’t walk anymore.
In fact, she flies. Everywhere. In spite of the fact that a high-speed rail is just down the street. The same high-speed rail that is also a cornerstone of her Green New Deal.
So, it seems that on her greenie-weenie credentials, AOC is starting to look a whole lot like SheJack. And it seems that she has a tendency to be fast and loose with campaign finance laws as well.
SheJack’s reports often raise eyebrows—she, like Maxine Waters, has had a lot of family on the payroll over the years. And AOC, well she’s paying her boyfriend $6000 a month for some sort of marketing services. Hmmm. How about that?
It remains to be seen whether AOC can equal SheJack’s staff turnover issues, or get labelled as one of the worst bosses in Congress. But I am going to stay tuned on this. You never know. It might be time for the changing of the guard.
