ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Kentucky Republicans Worried Inviting AOC to Meet with Coal Miners Might Backfire: Ocasio-Cortez actually said yes to their invite, and now they're waffling. (LUKE DARBY, April 16, 2019, GQ)

Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, told The Courier-Journal, "Luckily, we still have open borders with Kentucky. We don't need Congressman Barr to meet with coal miners and have a town hall, though we'd love his participation if we do."

Uninviting Ocasio-Cortez is probably a smart move on Barr's part in the long run. For one thing, there aren't any active coal mines in Barr's district. And James Comer, another Republican representative from Kentucky, told local news that he didn't "see any upside" to having her come to Kentucky. "I think a lot of Republicans are making a mistake picking on her. I think we need to be very prepared when we debate her on issues that we're having a hard time with."

Let's take it as a given that AOC is a neophyte with rather silly ideas: now imagine you're a GOP congressman who gets his head handed to him by her....
