Our favorite incoming Congresscritter, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (what, you thought we'd go with Jim Hagedorn?), comes up with the distillation of everything that is wrong with leftist thinking:

Magical thinking

A few questions:

  • Where do we keep all the extra case workers? Or do they rain down from the sky like manna?
  • Would a standing army of case workers be any better than a standing army of soldiers?
  • Are case workers really cheaper to house and outfit than soldiers? Would case workers set up in tents or barracks? Or would they need hotel rooms? And where are the hotel rooms?

Logistical considerations aren't Rep.-elect Ocasio-Cortez's thing, I suppose. But I do hope we can talk about the financial recklessness of magical thinking.
