An important part of winning a battle of wits is having your wits about you.
And let’s be honest. That hardly describes Maxine Waters.
But regardless of that, Maxine fancies herself a tough guy.
When in reality, the only thing tough about Maxine is trying to understand half of what she says.
Speaking at the Essence Festival in New Orleans – because what California Congresswoman wouldn’t appear in New Orleans – Maxine said this about HUD Secretary Ben Carson.
“And if he thinks when he comes before my committee where I am the ranking member that I am going to give him a pass… I am going to take his ass apart.”
Yes, I am certain Dr. Carson is shaking in his boots over this.
Maxine would lose an argument with a television.
She couldn’t argue her way out of a paper bag.
And I feel relatively confident that if there is a battle of wits between Maxine and Dr. Carson, Maxine will go into that battle completely unarmed.
Clearly brain power is not a prerequisite for becoming a ranking member of a Congressional Committee.
But it is a prerequisite in a battle of wits.
Ben Carson is a man who worked his way out of poverty, got an education and became one of the most successful brain surgeons in the world.
On top of that, he is probably the most unflappable person in public service.
But what does Maxine bring to this battle?
Wild conspiracy theories, flagrant dishonesties and absolutely no verbal control.
And, unlike the news anchors that never challenge Maxine, something tells me Carson will not indulge her crazy ramblings and incoherent jabs.
A fight between Maxine Waters and Dr. Carson would be like pitting Urkel against Muhammed Ali.
Personally, I love the fact that the Democrats won’t tell Maxine Waters to shut the hell up.
And it is equally Schadenfreuderiffic that the ResistanceLOL considers her one of their spokesmen.
It has given Maxine a very high opinion of herself – an opinion so far removed from reality as to be hilarious.
Trust me, Maxine really believes she can “take his ass apart.”
When in reality, I think it is more likely that Dr. Carson will strike back with such surgical precision, that all that will remain of Maxine is a puddle of drool and a smoldering wig.
