Loony Lefty of the Week: Congressman Mark Pocan

June 12, 2015

Our Loony Lefty this week is Congressman Mark Pocan (D-Wisconsin). The congressman felt it necessary to refer to U.S. Senator and Republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio as "Ricky Ricardo." Ricky Ricardo, of course, was the I Love Lucy character of Cuban descent played by Desi Arnaz in that famous television sitcom.

Not stopping there, Congressman Pocan also compared New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to the Star Wars character Jabba the Hut, famous for his wide girth (Jabba the Hut that is).

Imagine for a minute if those statements had been uttered by a Republican congressman about a Democrat? The outrage from the Left and their allies in the mainstream news media would have risen to a din.

But, I'll bet you didn't hear one word about Congressman Pocan's insulting comments.

Congressman Pocan and the blatant double standard to which the Left-wing is (not) held earn him this week's distinction as the Loony Lefty of the Week.
