Time she had her own thread because, obvious.  She is sure to give many of us great chuckles over the next 2+ years.

I don't know about that, think about some of her congressional peers such as Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson-Lee, and Frederica Wilson.

They remind me of the chaos their mental ancestors created in the French Revolution.

New York's 14th Congressional District is more than 70 percent people of color, and 50 percent Hispanic. Ocasio-Cortez, who was born in the Bronx to a Puerto Rican mother, fit the district’s changing demographics, and neatly fit a larger narrative of a national Democratic Party in which increasing progressivism and diversity go hand and hand.

But a closer examination of the data tells a different story. Ocasio-Cortez’s best precincts were places like the neighborhood where Bonthius and his friends live: highly educated, whiter and richer than the district as a whole. In those neighborhoods, Ocasio-Cortez clobbered Crowley by 70 percent or more. Crowley’s best precincts, meanwhile, were the working-class African-American enclave of LeFrak City, where he got more than 60 percent of the vote, and portions of heavily Hispanic Corona. He pulled some of his best numbers in Ocasio-Cortez’s heavily Latino and African-American neighborhood of Parkchester, in the Bronx—beating her by more than 25 points on her home turf.

I think Mark Twain on congress still holds up "Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress; but I repeat myself."

You would think these white progressives that have such a desire to live under the wonder that is hispanic flavored socialism would move to Cuba or Venezuela already.

Thinking about it.. do you want to meme her to precidency? So many Trumpers cheer him, when he once again posts some trolling BS on Twitter and the crazy left goes nuts. Same here. Whatever her qualities may be, she upsets the right with her talking BS. Maybe unintenionally and out of ignorance but she is "our girl™" for the Democrats and makes the Republicans go crazy.

 

 

Just ignore her. That hurts her the most.

Agree completely. She will thrive on people on the right giving her attention.

Interesting point; I wonder if she ever posted a pic of herself in a bikini;

 

Looks like Groucho (or was it Will Rogers?) was wrong: the folks who know how to run the country, in fact don't drive taxis or cut hair.

I know of no one on the right who gets upset at Occasional Cortex. I know of many who view her as a gift, that will pay off in 2020. Just as the Bernie memes and Fauxcahontas memes gave Trump a little boost, so will AOC's outbursts.

Please, I'm not worried about her turning her dumbassery, and the Right laughing at her, into presidential currency.  It didn't help Bernie, Hillary, or Fauxcahantas.  Besides, and I'm not making this up, she believes that regardless of having to wait until she's 35 years old, there is still the matter of passing the Equal Rights Amendment that will allow women the constitutional right to run for president.  She's going to dumb ass herself into not ever being eligible.

She's a gaffe factory.  You don't have to make silly stuff up; just let her talk.

I wonder when the Dems will finally start trying to shut her down.

It has worked quite nicely for Joe Biden for 40 years.

Biden, likely as not, was pegged for the Veep position as punishment for his racist 2007 comments about Obama.

Did anyone really care about those comments? ("the first clean, articulate... black man").   Those only matter when it's the wrong person saying them.
