Hilarious. According to CPAP attendees Alexandria Ocasio Cortez

Is going to take away your hamburgers and steal your cows... oh, and remodel your house too. Apparently, they are going to run on the red menace scare tactic like the good old days of the cold war. Never mind the fact that at the same time, they support a president who is in bed with Putin.

After today's hearing I question what qualifications you need to be elected as a gop

I am amazed at how mediocre the GOP members of Congress are. Many of them act as if they never evolved out of being schoolyard bullies. Some are plain dumb like gohmert. Most are unable to argue their position without resorting to name calling. We saw that displayed today.

Michael Cohen who according to Giuliani and his ilk is a
mediocre lawyer had no problems running circle around them. All the GOP reps did was to try to say he was a liar as if it mattered. After all, Cohen had defused this line of attack from the start by having pled guilty and openly admitted to having lied before. He also came armed with factual evidence.

Instead of debating him on the substance the GOP reps just launched into temper tantrums. No salient question, nothing.

Compare that with the brilliance on our side. Chairman Cummings was masterfull. Our new members were very good. Both Ro Khanna and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez had excellent lines of questioning.

This begs the question : is it a requirement to be dim in order to be elected on the GOP platform ? Is that what their voters mean by "telling it like it is" ? Are the GOP Congress members really mediocre intellectually or am I biased because of my political affiliation ?

I'impressed at how anchors like Richard Liu can just pick up

A coverage with 30 seconds notice. Joyce was filling in for Lawrence o donnel but the satellite link failed. Liu picked it up from his desk, not even the studio and has not missed a beat, interviewing the panel etc..

I wonder how scripted these shows are or if they just have people smart enough to think on their feet and pick it up with no notice.
