“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus”

Nancy Pelosi, Nan-the-Ripper of the President’s State of the Union speech, shepherd of the political impeachment (you knew she was serious because she wore a black dress) Speaker of the House who wagged her finger in the President’s face, enabler of The Squad, has met her match.

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said it was time for Pelosi (and Senator Chuck Schumer, D-NY whose term expires in 2022) to go.

Nancy never saw it coming.

That’s because she didn’t pay attention.

AOC said the same things in her first run for office, i.e., old people should give way, except at that time she confined her comments to “old white men”. She has since expanded her repertoire.

People laughed at her.

They’re not laughing now.

Pelosi posed with AOC, Representatives Hayes, Omar and Pressley for the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.  They looked so gay, so toothy, so united, so fashionable.

But AOC snookered Nancy.

For some reason, Nancy, consumed with her anti-Trump press conferences, BLM kneel complete with African kente cloth (of a slave-owning tribe), thought AOC might have forgotten that she once compared her to an inanimate object. (“This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”)

Progressives never forget. They also never have any gratitude. That’s what makes them progressives. They “progress” past recognizable human values and move on to a higher calling defined by a self-directed, narcissistic vision of the world. 

AOC was directly responsible for her district losing thousands of high-paying Amazon jobs.

No big deal to her fellow progressives. They re-elected her.

Bye-bye, Nancy of the exotic ice-creams.

You are old and there is nothing you can do about it. 

Old, in Progressiveville means dead.

Schumer better start collecting some Home Depot boxes.
