I don’t like politicians. They don’t really ever get anything done.

The biggest politician we have today is our Vice President Kamala Harris. She’s accomplished nothing professionally… all she’s ever done is run for office… never even doing the work she was elected to do… always just running for the next office.

Unfortunately this is what Harris knows… and people focus on what they know… so my fear is the swamp just gets deeper with her in office. Ugh.

Another polarizing politician is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (“AOC”).

The press loves to paint her as some extremely far left radical socialist. Maybe she is, maybe she isn’t, she represents New York so I don’t know enough about her except the press paints her as some extremely far left radical socialist.

A headline jumped out at me this morning… Kamala Harris and AOC squaring off over a border issue.

My mind raced… it was like two heavyweight politicians in some kind of weird political octagon brawl… which politician could be more worthless?!

AOC opened with a splattering of, well, common sense:

“First, seeking asylum at any US border is a 100% legal method of arrival. Second, the US spent decades contributing to regime change and destabilization in Latin America. We can’t help set someone’s house on fire and then blame them for fleeing.”

But then she just couldn’t help herself and had to go kitchen sink:

“It would be helpful if the US would finally acknowledge its contributions to destabilization and regime change in the region. Doing so can help us change US foreign policy, trade policy, climate policy, & carceral border policy to address causes of mass displacement & migration.”

What does trade and climate policy have to do with border stuff? Way to convolute the conversation, AOC!

But, not to disappoint, hammerin’ Harris came back swinging with something even more inane:

“I’m really clear: we have to deal with the root causes, and that is my focus,” the VP said, then added, “Period.”

So the winner is…

…Harris! Spoken like the master politician she is. In other words, if it’s possible, she said even less than AOC… Harris actually said absolutely nothing.
