The Washington Free Beacon reports that She Guevara (AKA Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) has compared her winning an election to the moon landing or establishment of civil rights. She’s quotes as saying:
We’ve done what we thought was impossible. We went to the moon. We electrified the nation. We established civil rights. We enfranchised the country. We dug deep and we did it. We did it, when no one else thought that we could. That’s what we did when so many of us won an election this year. That’s what so many of us did.
Neil Armstrong and Martin Luther King, Jr. were unavailable for comment. However, Sarah Hoyt has noted “WELL, MOON, MOONBAT….”
The good news is that She Guevara seems to be proving that her place in politics is to provide comic relief. The bad news is that her legislative proposals, if successful, would wind up increasing the federal budget much, much more than the Apollo program did during the ’60s. (NASA’s slice of the pie was a bit about 4 % then; it’s about 0.4 % now.)
