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.
