The Bungling Senator From Massachusetts

Big government advocate, thy name is Ed Markey.

Markey’s big on protecting … er … using the environment as an excuse for government intrusion.

He was the U.S. Senate Sponsor of the Green New Deal. Yes, the one proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez with resolutions such as “meeting 100 percent of the power demand of the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.”

That’s insane, and we said so at the time. But we also pointed out the unstated goals of the bill.

Is all this centrally planned disruption necessary? No matter what effects human beings may or may not be having on climate, why would we rush to destroy our way of life? 

That’s what the Green New Deal would do. But it’s not by accident. Destroying the economy is not an unfortunate byproduct of the alleged solution. It’s the point of the alleged solution. 

In a way, the peril or lack of peril of the planet is irrelevant. For the Green New Deal serves a greater goal.

But Ed Markey isn’t worth covering for his ideas.  No.

What makes Ed Markey worth covering are his how-did-he-get-here deficiencies.

It takes someone really special to propose a bill and then not even vote for it. That is what Markey did for the Green New Deal. What was Markey’s excuse? Mitch McConnell called for a vote on it.

The idiocy Ed Markey puts consistently on display is amusing. In fact, Ed Markey brightens our day more than most conservatives would like to admit.

Sure, he’s a panderer. Yes, he supported a constitutional amendment to ban abortion when he first ran for Congress before his “conscience” eventually demanded that he endorse Planned Parenthood and the ROE Act abortion expansion bill.

But gosh, he’s so much fun.

Like that time in 2017 when he used left-wing-blogs’ conspiracy theories when he falsely claimed a grand jury in New York was investigating President Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

When it comes to making nonsensical statements in public, our 70-something-year-old junior senator stands out. The Massachusetts Republican Party should consider funding an Ed Markey Channel on cable television – a continuous loop of Markeyisms for the people of Massachusetts to learn from and enjoy.

If we have to have a looney-toons U.S. senator from Massachusetts – and let’s face it, we do – then it might as well be this looney-toons U.S. senator.

The other one resembles a bad character from a fairy tale.
