Or she knows what she is doing, and she knows Republican voters are dumb

1. Yep, she is remarkably dumb

When you have a low IQ and very little education you operate off of "buzz words" that you have been told represent bad things. This way you dont have to even know what they mean, just know they are bad, sigh.

2. She graduated from Harvard

She's not dumb, she just knows her constituents are.

3. So she is like DeSantis, a conperson.

That's worse, she is even more disgusting than I thought.

10. Yeah, she bends with the wind

Sold herself as a moderate when elected, jumped on the Trump train when she saw how it would pay off...

7. The portion of her constituents who voted for her are dumb.

Some are merely victims of those voters.

13. You can always tell a Harvardian. But you can't tell them much.

Archaic local joke for Cantabridgians dealing with arrogant preppy-style Crimson creeps.

16. Diversity admit

#1 in her class of 12 from East Dumphaven Township High School, Nowheresville, Upstate New York.

DeSantis got into Yale because he was a really good baseball player--he was captain of the team. By the time he was ready for law school, he was fully part of the wingnut affirmative action crowd (Federalist Society, etc.).

No way either of these two get into these schools if they are from the Tristate NYC area or aren't super good at sportsball.

Tom Cotton? Diversity admit (grew up in Deliveranceville, Arkansas).

Ted Cruz? Duh, affirmative action. He's Cuban and Canuckistanian.

I could go on and on....

I should note that I support affirmative action. I just like to tease those who deserve a little ribbing.

9. GOP voters "get" the dogwhistle here

Medicare and Medicaid are for nice white middle class Americans

"Socialist Healthcare Schemes" give things to the poors and people of color

11. She knows what she is doing, and knows conservatives are ruled by emotion.

You can certainly simplify it to "dumb". I have no problem with that.

Socialism is a scary word, that I would be willing to bet that 95% of Stefanik's audience does not understand. She, being a Harvard graduate, and noted by a Democratic colleague to be "smart", likely knows what socialism is and knows she is lying about it.

She knows that her audience will not bother to even think about what socialism has to do with either program, except that "Socialism is bad" and we don't want to lose Medicare and Medicaid, neither of which are socialism, but are definitely within the realm of public social programs in the vein of Social Democracy.

12. Not dumb at all. She knows her voters won't recognize the dissonance.

I know many people on SS and Medicare who rant about cutting "entitlements" and support politicians who pledge to do so.
