Like young knights setting off on a quest to slay a mythical beast, there comes a time in every young Republican’s life when they try to find the courage within themselves to play the hero and finally own that evil communist witch, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
But like so many frozen and sun-blinded climbers buried in the slopes of Mt. Everest, none have yet to succeed.
Marjorie Taylor Greene, the psychotic QAnon devotee running for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District, made the unwise decision of trying to go at Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter last night.
As creatively bankrupt as every other Republican is these days, Greene decided to take the heavily-treaded and perpetually unsuccessful approach of “AOC is stupid!” with a blonde joke twist, which would probably have gone better if she had bothered to spell-check her tweet before sending it:
The right-wing’s incessant efforts to portray Ocasio-Cortez as “stupid” largely does little more than making it clear that in fact, it is they who are the stupid ones, especially when AOC fires back with one of her famous clapbacks.
Don’t worry Mrs. Greene, I completely understand why you need to swing + miss at my intellect to make yourself feel better.
You seem to have some trouble spelling your own insults correctly.
Next time try “single-handedly,” it’ll work better.
Good luck writing legislation! https://t.co/y33JXVfxDc

The right-wing’s pathologically obsessive desire to own AOC recalls the infamous catchphrase from Omar in HBO smash hit the Wire: “come at the king, you best not miss.”
Ocasio-Cortez graduated cum laude with a double major in political science and economics from Boston University and has a far better grasp on how the world works than anyone in the Republican Party.
When they send their people to insult her, they aren’t sending their best. They’re sending morons who believe that anonymous government agents are sending them secret messages on mass shooter-breeding child pornography image boards.
It's telling that all of these Republicans always seem to attack AOC only one time– and never again. I wonder why that is.
