Incompetent Elected Official Of The Month, Year, Decade, Century, And Eon: Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.)

I know, I know, this is res ipsa loquitur. Anyone with a functioning brain, unlike Rep. Bush, will immediately see the hilarious flaw in her “reasoning,” if one can call it that. There may be high-functioning mollusks that could see it. But I’ve had a crummy day, and deserve some fun.

Yes, this isn’t a parody or a deep fake. (House Whip James Clyburn might think it is, since he swears no Democrat has ever advocated defundung the police. Well, him, but no others…) We really have someone in Congress who passionately, angrily insists that taxpayers should pay for her private security force so she can make sure the U.S. Congress defunds the police. There isn’t enough space in this post to explain how many alarms one had to lack in order to be recoded saying something like this. Not just ethics alarms, but hyp[ocrisy alarms, common sense alarms, alarms, “Wow, I’m embarrarsing party, my district, my family, my friends, and all of my teachers!” alarms, and of course the crucial “Gee, I’m sounding like an idiot!” She is the best illustration of the Dunning-Kruger Effect I have ever seen.

We knew, if we knew anything about Bush at all, that she was an idiot. After all, she ran as a Black Lives Matter candidate and still believes that Mike Brown was shot while holding up his arms and saying “Hands Up! Don’t shoot!” She’s obviously unqualified to be a lawmaker, but the video shows she’s also too lacking in basic cognitive function to be 7-11 clerk, a crossing guard, an au pere, a gardener, a house-painter, a dog-walker. or a lemonade stand proprietor. She mistakes passion and certitude for wisdom. She also is likely to mistake an anteater for a spoon.

My wife says they have been running this clip all day on Fox News, but it should be run on all the news channels, and would, if we had ethical journalists. It should scare the hell out of people. This is what Hamilton and so many others among the Founders were afraid of: a democracy that was doomed by a civically illiterate public that would vote for irresponsible morons like Cori Bush.

So sure, the video speaks for itself, but everyone should still think long and hard about its implications. This is what Democracy Rot looks like, and it is spreading.

    • “I know this is low-hanging fruit.”

      Heck Jack, as hard as you work at your blog, to the benefit of us all, and at such an…um…affordable rate no less, that there low hanging fruit’s absolutely begging to get took, so why not?

      Yet episodes like this beg a larger question, one you’d think any career Lefty with enough sense to pour pi$$ out of a boot without instructions would be asking: Just how F*CKIN’ STUPID does Lefty deem their target audience?

  1. Hubris! I can tolerate a level of hubris in smart, achieving, analytic, interesting (etc.) people, but the hubris of this moron is absolutely more than I can stand. Where are we headed? How did someone like her get elected? I agree that the Founders were afraid of ignorant mob democracy, and they should have been. And so should we. I am terrified.

    Between that and the Democrats not only allowing but encouraging illegal immigration — in spite of the virus — and concomitantly moving to allow illegals to vote (!) — I see the end stage of our Republic. They want us to be sheep. They want us dependent. They want us to do what we are told. And though I am afraid, I need to find a way to stand up against this.

  2. “Comrades!” he cried. “You do not imagine, I hope, that we pigs are doing this in a spirit of selfishness and privilege? Many of us actually dislike milk and apples. I dislike them myself. Our sole object in taking these things is to preserve our health. Milk and apples (this has been proved by Science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig. We pigs are brainworkers. The whole management and organisation of this farm depend on us. Day and night we are watching over your welfare. It is for your sake that we drink the milk and eat those apples.”

  3. Jack, you shouldn’t insult 7-11 clerks, crossing guards, au peres, gardeners, house-painters, dog-walkers. and lemonade stand proprietors like that..

      • “Wow, I’m embarrassing my party, my district, my family, my friends, and all of my teachers!” alarms, and of course the crucial “Gee, I’m sounding like an idiot!”

        Not at all. She’s a Democratic Socialist sock puppet. These are Marxist revolutionaries. They want to control the truth and what people think. If they say something is the case, it is the case. Up is down and down is up. Everyone must wear their underwear outside their clothes. If we take the money spent on police and spend it on social services for the poor, there will be no need for police. Crime is a mental health problem. Intersectionality! We can cure criminal behavior if we have the right money spent the right way. But in the meantime, I need private security because the social services are starved by police budgets. And the only reason there are criminals is because of the existence of police. And I’ve received death threats from white people. They are the problem, not criminals.

        She’s not an idiot, she’s an ideologue. And soon, she’ll have her very own dacha, just like Bernie and all the BLM senior management. There are tons of people out there nodding their heads sagely and saying, “You know, she’s right.”
