AOC just announced that the world “will like end in 12 years. Like?”
She’s a cartoon character. But at least she’s not blonde, so one can go, “Hah! There are brunettes who are a lot dumber than blondes! Let’s roll out the brunette jokes now!”
It bugs me, though, that people excuse her Valley Girl act as stemming from her youth. My students are a decade younger, and I’ve never seen anybody among them so. . . how do I put it. . . unspoiled by intellect. I watch her for two minutes and feel a deep need to go give hugs to my students for not being like this.
It’s so sad she can’t run for president now. Imagine her debating Trump on stage. It would be a total “who’s on first, circa 2020.”
“Mommy, I want to watch cartoons.”
“Here, honey, sit next to mommy and watch the presidential debate. See all the funny characters?”
