New York Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio Cortez can’t get enough of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. She harps obsessively on his purported mismanagement of COVID, including his refusal to mandate masks against the will of the people in the state he was elected to govern.
And so it was interesting that AOC was recently photographed in Florida. Did she come to stalk DeSantis? If so, she might have stalked in the wrong place. The photograph of her was taken in a drag bar, which is probably not the type of place DeSantis frequents.
Upon hearing the news, DeSantis good naturedly welcomed AOC to his state. Other Republicans, however, pointed out the contradiction between AOC’s words criticizing DeSantis’ management of COVID in Florida and and her actions in coming to Florida for bar entertainment in close quarters.
AOC tweeted her defense, of sorts: “It’s starting to get old ignoring the very obvious, strange, and deranged sexual frustrations that underpin the Republican fixation on me, women, & LGBT+ people in general. These people clearly need therapy, won’t do it, and use politics as their outlet instead. It’s really weird.”
Could AOC be projecting a bit? She certainly seems obsessed with DeSantis.
I agree that there’s some weirdness here. But it’s not by Republicans who criticize Democrats like AOC for hypocrisy.
No, the weirdness here is all about AOC. Political commentator Candace Owens observed: “How bizarre and immature is it for any person who wants to be taken seriously as an adult to look at a fair critique of them as an elected official who has been barking about how Florida is doing everything wrong, about how bad Ron DeSantis is, to see this critique and offer back, ‘Well, you know what, you just want to sleep with me.’ I mean what are we even talking about?”
Expect AOC’s defense to Owens’ criticism to be another projection of her own feelings. Something along the lines of, “Candace Owens just wants to sleep with me.”
I think the actual probability that Owens wants to sleep with AOC is about the same probability that DeSantis wants to and the same probability that I want to. It’s 0.00%. I mean that mathematically, not approximately. There are no rounding errors in that calculation.
It’s certainly true that I’ve criticized AOC over the years. In fact, I’ve outright mocked her. She’s very mockable.
To be clear, however, I’ve also mocked other Democrats. Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton come to mind. But they don’t come to mind in my dreams. I mock them but don’t dream of sleeping with them. Trust me about this. In fact, I’ve often mocked President-Lite Joe Biden and his criminal son but I don’t want to sleep with them either.
Heck, I’ve occasionally mocked Donald Trump even though I voted for him twice and agreed with nearly all his policies. He himself would probably admit with a laugh that he’s eminently mockable.
But sleep with him? Nah. Have you seen those hands?
