- We wish they all would
- Whatever it takes and by all deliberate speed
- Based on AOC’s predilections maybe she should tell Pete Buttguy, or what ever his name is, that he should mince away, or would that be homophobic?
- Just say’n
AOC seems to be picking at lamé when she tells John Delooney, or whatever his name is, that he is unworthy, given that, well “Pistol Pete” Buttguy is not for outright single payer Medicare for all either. But first about Occasional Cortex and this John Delooney guy*
Article from Courtney Obrien at Townhall:
It’s becoming clearer and clearer that there is no room or patience for moderate Democrats in the 2020 presidential race. Take, for instance, the response former Maryland Rep. John Delaney received after telling an audience that Medicare for All is not good policy. He’s for universal health care but emphasized that Medicare for All is not the way to get there.
“Medicare for all may sound good but it’s actually not good policy nor is it good politics,” Delaney said at the California Democratic Convention.
He got extensively booed, but stood his ground at the podium, saying, “This is called the battle of ideas, my friends.”
Delaney was then publicly shamed on Twitter by the most prominent progressive in Washington.
Since there’s so many people running for President (& not enough for Senate), instead of obsessing over who‘s a “frontrunner,” maybe we can start w some general eliminations.
This awful, untrue line got boo’ed for a full minute.
John Delaney, thank you but please sashay away ???? https://t.co/0RDOwbfcgv

Delaney’s office rejects the notion he should be disqualified for not joining some of the other 2020 Democrats in embracing the extreme health care plan. He responded by accusing AOC of hurting rather than helping her party.
“If Democrats are serious about beating the president at the ballot box, we need less political grandstanding and more truth-telling from the Bernie wing of the party,” Delaney spokesman Michael Starr Hopkins said. “2016 should have taught us that if we allow this primary to become a popularity contest on Twitter rather than a debate of ideas in the public square, the country will lose.”
About Butt Petegag or whatever, via The Hill
Buttigieg has said he believes the country should move “in the direction” of a Medicare for All system, but that private health insurance companies shouldn’t be eliminated.
In a CNN town hall earlier this month, Buttigieg endorsed what he called “Medicare for all who want it,” in which a Medicare-type public option would be made available “and you invite people to buy into it.”
Seems like a distinction without a difference between Duhlaney and Buttguy
So now will AOC dare tell “Pistol Pete” that he should just “mince away” or would she prefer he ”prance”
* I am tired of the media treating these people like responsible citizens, these clowns need to be made fun of.
And finally this delightful sardonic meme via HP – of a nature that lost us a few readers back when Obama was in power. C’est la vie
