Our founders set a minimum age to serve in the House of Representatives — 25 — because back in those days, the vast majority of Americans had long matured by then.
They had to; life in a new, largely frontier country wasn’t easy. It was either grow up fast ‘fail to thrive.’
Life isn’t so tough these days, save for certain portions of Democrat-run cities.
So much of our culture encourages juvenile behavior, even rewards it.
Which is how someone like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can exist in an august body like Congress.
While she fits the physical age description to serve — she’s 31 — she obviously lacks the mental maturity to serve.
It’s like she’s on a high school field trip playing the role of a ‘congresswoman,’ as she demonstrated yet again this week.
Shortly after the Capitol Building riot, this moron posted a video to her Instagram account claiming she was mere moments away from death.
That’s complete bulls**t. She was never in any danger. Ever.
And being the drama queen that she is, she has continued to push this lie and use it as a political cudgel to smack her GOP opponents with, especially her favor target, the infinitely smarter and better prepared Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).
In response to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) suggesting she turn down the temperature on her rhetoric after she accused him of trying to get her 'killed,' Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-D) took aim at the entire Republican Party.
'I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there's common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,' AOC said to Cruz in response to him agreeing with her online about looking into investment app Robinhood's recent controversial actions. 'Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren't trying to get me killed. In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign.'
'You know, there's a lot of partisan anger and rage on the Democratic side,' Cruz said in response. 'It's not healthy for our country, it's certainly not conducive of healing or unity, but everyone has to decide how they want to interact with others.'
'Oh, there's anger?' the congresswoman responded Thursday. 'Now why would there be anger that Cruz amplified known lies about our election that fueled an insurrection that cost [people's] lives?'
'What does he think the logical response to his lies should be? A hug?' she continued. 'Maybe there's anger [because] his actions deserve accountability.'
''We need healing + unity, but I will not take any responsibility for my actions, nor will I acknowledge the contributions my lies made to the violence or the harm that it caused, nor do I believe anyone should be held accountable. But if you're mad at that you're divisive,' she wrote in a follow-up post, sarcastically signing the tweet as the 'GOP.'
It’s high school every day with this former bartender. Her district deserves better but they’re going to have to fix this mistake.
