Cow Farts: 1, AOC: 0. Mitch McConnell & the GOP Senate Mercilessly Crush Alexandria's Green New Deal



Well, the Senate has voted on — in Ben Shapiro’s words — “one of the stupidest documents ever written” (here).

[Apropos = the Stupidest Words Ever Spoken]


The dream of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — to live in a great land without air travel — may have to wait a smidge for its fulfillment: On Tuesday afternoon, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his GOP colleagues sunk AOC’s battleship.


As covered by RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar, the 29-year-old cow fart fighter for the Nazi’s economic system was none too happy with the way the plan was addressed. In fact, remarking on Senator Mike Lee’s hilarious review, she tweeted, “If this guy can be Senator, you can do anything.”

If Alexandria wants to point out that anyone can make it to Congress, she needn’t look that far, as evidenced here, here, here, here, and here.

For evidence that the GND is dead, look no further than the chamber’s vote: 57 to 0.

Earlier, Mitch characterized the Deal thusly:

“The Green New Deal, my Democratic colleagues’ rallying cry: Killing off entire domestic industries. Winding down millions of jobs. Basically outlawing the only sources of energy that working-class and middle-class families can actually afford.”


And there was more:

Of course, voting on something so dumb as the Green New Deal may seem ridiculous, but “ridiculous” is what the Dems served up — Cory Booker even compared opposition to the unworkable revolution to the Third Reich (here).


He was surely, then, disappointed that Congress gave a big ol’ “Heil Hitler.”

Despite the absurdity of the GND, our family and friends who only know what they see on MSNBC and CNN will likely continue to think the plan was a lifesaver, as seen in this exchange as a result of Mitch’s tweet:


Perhaps Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren should talk to Rick Love — both Spartacus and Pocahauntus signed on as Senate co-sponsors of the plan to retrofit every building in America. Stellar work.

In an ideal world, all Americans would join together and recognize the GND for what it truly is, therefore immortalizing it by its more accurate moniker: the Brown New Deal.

Today, Tuesday March 26th, the Senate flushed.

Speaking of names, maybe in a couple years, AOC’ll follow Hillary and write a memoir (here) of the failure. Whereas Trump penned The Art of the Deal, given the GND’s aspirations, I have a suggested title: The Fart of the Deal.
