Subby, we're not going to watch your mom's German Scheißer videos.

It'd be ruled 'no contest' after about 30 seconds in.

To paraphrase Lloyd Bentson: Representative. You're no AOC.

As much as I'd like to see jewish space laser being masticated, it would be a complete waste of time. There's no way that someone who gloms onto Q bullshait woulf ever recognize they're wrong, much less concede any given point.

She just wants TV time.

She'd storm off half way through the debate and play the victim card.

I wouldn't watch that dreck. MTG is a b*tch, asshole, and all-around bad person. I'm not giving her any money.

That would be funny.

How long into the debate before Margarine starts telling everyone she does crossfit?

30 seconds?

Greene should debate it in committee, like she's supposed to.
 
2021-04-14 10:59:09 PM  
What is it that she is trying to turn people's attention away from this time? Did that phone that the feds took from Matt Gaetz last December have the history of some illicit IM exchanges between her and GasPedo? Are she and the other MAGAt congresscritters that were palling around with seditionists at the capitol the day before the insurrection about to be criminally indicted? Find out the answers to these burning questions and more on the next episode of DERP.

Bill Nye vs. Ken Hamm redux.

AOC's science and reason will be treated as being on equal footing with Greene's ignorance and malice.

What would it take to change your mind?
 
2021-04-15 2:00:32 AM  
Why yes, we should hear both sides of the great cake debate.  All congress folk are equal.

She thinks debate is the bear that drives the little car.

Much like Bill Nye debating Ken Ham, I understand the reasoning and have respect for the motivations, but I would say "don't bother, sir/congresswoman. You're bringing a debate to a sh*t-fight."

You don't debate lunatics. They drag you down with them, and they get all the benefits by appealing to their base and getting some legitimacy .

The Hill has reached out to Ocasio-Cortez's office for comment.

What possible reason could you have to do so when she is making her position clear by not responding to Greene in the first place?  She has no more interest in illegitimately raising Greene's profile now than she had of raising Shapiro's when he pulled the same stupid stunt back in 2018.

Debate requires 1) equal intellectual footing and 2) people who are interested in engaging in good faith.  There are no conservatives capable of the former, and none who are interested in the latter.

Officer Barrelroll: How long into the debate before Margarine starts telling everyone she does crossfit?

30 seconds?


She isn't allowed anymore.

CrossFit is a brand, and they have canceled her affiliation with her. She isn't legally allowed to have anything to do with CrossFit anymore.

foo monkey: Greene should debate it in committee, like she's supposed to.


I'm guessing she can't because she doesn't have a seat in any committees.

Which means she gets to vote and cause trouble in the halls.

Nope.

She would come prepared with talking points that she had memorized. Regardless of whatever AOC might say, Margarine would puke up a talking point, smile, and wink. The TQP would fall all over themselves yelling what a wonderful job she did, how she totally pwned AOC, and no matter how much the sensible, rational people would explain how and in what ways it was all nonsense, AOC would come out looking like the loser.

It is a now-win sitch for AOC, and a no-lose sitch for Margarine.

Which is why AOC has not responded. If she does respond, it will be with such conditions that Margarine would not agree to in any way.

Arguing/debating with Marjorie Taylor Greene epitomizes the 'Wrestling with a pig' saying. There's nothing to gain other than the sh*t-show it would possibly provide and that's f*cking counterproductive and stupid in the political arena.

And money.

Greene proposed charging people to watch the debate and said that "the money raised could be split between us for our choosing of where it goes."
 
2021-04-15 2:29:53 AM  
It would be pointless. Greene will not debate in good faith. She is looking for a stage for her show. Nothing can be learned or achieved this way. Your average fark politics thread is more informative and productive than that shiatshow would be.
 
2021-04-15 2:30:49 AM  
I think even funnier would be watching Biden debate Putin--or anybody at this point.

MIT Lincoln Laboratory named the asteroid after Ocasio-Cortez, while in high school, won second place in a global science fair.

I don't care if I get a ban.   You are way too farking stupid to have been a lawyer.

If you've heard both women speak and you think greene is the intellectual between them...  I don't even

You're carrying water for a conspiracy nut job.

In 2016, Trump expressed interest in a debate with Bernie Sanders, and when Bernie agreed to it, Trump immediately backed out of it.

AOC staffer gets into the office that morning.

Voice mail:  You have ONE new message. Beep.

"Hi, this is Jack Mehoff from The Hill..."

AOC staffer: HAHA!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

"......to discuss with Ms Ocasio..."

AOC staffer: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
