Capital nincompoop

This is a fun one. You’re gonna like it.

Nincompoop and ignoramus are about the only verbal put-downs I rely on. Stronger stuff runs rampant on the internet, but not here where decorum reigns. But I love my two put-downs, and it’s a pleasure when I see others use them, especially the first one. And it’s even more enjoyable when it’s my favorite news channel, Sky News Australia.

This brief video has Rita Panahi, a delightful broadcaster, taking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez behind the proverbial shed for a really good and much-deserved whupping. AOC is a textbook example of the downside of universal suffrage. Nincompoop hardly touches the level of her, well, you know. She’s a Democrat, of course. The party should be quite proud.

One cannot watch AOC and not think of Bill Maher’s recent observation that America is now a nation of silly people. And you would be hard-pressed to find a sillier one than AOC.

The swamp creature

That would be Kamala Harris, the vice president, a pol as corrupt as a Tammany Hall ward heeler. Just watch the first 20 seconds of the above video. The rest is interesting, but it’s the first 20 seconds that are appalling. And consider that this “woman of color” will soon be the “leader of the free world,” God help us.

I mention “woman of color” because it’s the sole reason she is where she is.

She was also criticized this week for climbing the stairs into her now-personal aircraft, Air Force Two, a Boeing 757, without saluting the honor guard, something all previous vice presidents have done, including Sleepy Joe.

Harris was so unpopular during the Democrat presidential debates that she washed out early on, and who can forget when Tulsi Gabbard ripped her a new one during that debate. You can watch that here. The ripping starts at the video’s 3:50 mark. See Kamala squirm.

One of the panelists on the show in the top video remarks that Harris is a “very unserious person.” Actually, she is serious, seriously bad, seriously dangerous.


Moving on now from that unserious person of color to another one, who is not only serious but one of the world’s most brilliant, Thomas Sowell, a political philosopher and economist with the Hoover Institution. The video is a montage of interview clips over recent years.

I share his pessimism about America and the Biden Administration or, as the White House recently instructed federal departments, the Biden-Harris Administration.
