This was one of those really fun ones to write. The smugness of the left backfires bigly after purposely running headlong into the reality of everyday Americans. “Oops” doesn’t even begin to describe this one.

Our story begins with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in April, with Elon Musk teasing her on Twitter about “hitting” on him.

And as my RedState colleague Nick Arama reported on Friday, Socialist Barbie™ threw a hissy fit last week about selling her Tesla and suggesting she “could care less” — for those you who take writing seriously, that would be “couldn’t care less” — about “billionaire” Musk and “what he thinks.”

Guess what? Elon again returned fire. And this time, my man took it to the paint. Hard.

Musk played off the “politician vs. the billionaire” thing with a simple one-question “poll” on Twitter.

Who do you trust less? Real question.

Politicians: 75.7%
Billionaires: 24.3%

Yup, beyond “oops.” With nearly 3.4 million responses, no less.

Here’s where it gets really funFirst, Musk:

AOC, I dare you to run the same poll with your followers.

Game on?

While AOC went full-metal crickets after Musk’s poll, Army veteran David Weissman, an opinion writer for Occupy Democrats and self-proclaimed “former Trump supporter, and proud Liberal Dem,” took up Musk’s challenge and created his own Twitter poll — in all its smug-ass glory:

To Weissman’s credit, he took the beatdown like a man by not deleting the results and “taking the L” — although he was completely baffled by the results.
