Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Will we ever tire of her? Probably, but as someone once said, that day is not this day.
Ben Shapiro challenged Cortez to a debate and offered to donate $10,000 to a charity of Cortez’s choice as an incentive. It is a delightful thought–Shapiro dismantling the dim-witted Cortez, piece by piece. Cortez, of course, was having none of it. She begged off with a pitiful response:
Just like catcalling, I don’t owe a response to unsolicited requests from men with bad intentions.
And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one. pic.twitter.com/rsD17Oq9qe

Cortez needs help from her media consultants on how to dodge debates with much smarter conservatives. “Catcalling” doesn’t really do the trick. Actually, Shapiro was treating her as a presumptively worthy adversary. Ben responded appropriately:
Discussion and debate are not “bad intentions.” Slandering someone as a sexist catcaller without reason or evidence does demonstrate cowardice and bad intent, however.
Prager U commented on Cortez’s feeble response:
Now the real fun began: Candace Owens swung into action. Pointing out that she could hardly be accused of exercising male privilege by “catcalling,” and secure in the knowledge that she has at least 50 IQ points on Cortez, Candace upped the ante:
And what exactly was your excuse for having turned down the debate with me?
Can’t wrap that one up in fake-feminism.

Cortez apparently has decided that discretion is the better part of valor, when it comes to revealing her ignorance. She has not responded to Candace’s challenge. Meanwhile, Charlie Kirk, Candace’s friend and colleague at Turning Point USA, has added fuel to the fire:

Don’t hold your breath. Liberals generally scatter like cockroaches when challenged to defend their ideas in an open forum. They prefer to operate in the dark, by shadow banning, for example.
We conservatives are getting a great deal of entertainment out of poor Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, who, the liberal press assures us, represents the future of the Democratic Party. We fervently hope so!
UPDATE: I almost forgot. If you didn’t get the reference in the post title–and most readers probably didn’t–here is the Mike Tyson-Lou Savarese fight in its entirety. The video is eight minutes long, but not because the fight lasted that long. My point was that a debate between either Ben Shapiro or Candace Owens–who, increasingly, I see as the most important public person of this moment–and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez would be a mismatch of similar proportions, starting with a first-punch knockdown.
