#1 I'm not certain there's enough there behind the crazy girlfriend eyes for belligerence, maybe relentless is a better term.

#2 Unfortunately, get used to seeing these types roll out from the left...ill-informed, selectively educated in left leaning colleges, lack of depth, and no understanding of life outside the "bubble"

#3 Yep, even if she herself fails, she still represents a type that will be one the defining features of the political landscape.

#4 Which means, ultimately, that Ocasio-Cortez is not even a socialist, no matter how much she might want to call herself that. She is a big government statist who believes in little more than confiscatory taxes, bloated spending, and a government program for every problem in America.

Ironically, this makes her that which she least wants to be: a boring, fairly typical liberal, the likes of which we have seen in this country for a hundred years. Not new. Not trendy. Not fresh. She is essentially a 28 year old Walter Mondale.


Poor Walter! I thought he was smarter than that.

#5 It's not who she is, there are plenty like her. It's how many who are willing to support her.

#6 She is santa clause, she thinks she can magically give out stuff to the people and that stuff will magically somehow not cost any money. She's an idiot.

#7 The Wizard of Oz: Why,anybody can have a brain. That's a very mediocre commodity. Every pusillanimous creature that crawls on the Earth or slinks through slimy seas has a brain. Back where I come from, we have universities, seats of great learning, where men go to become great thinkers. And when they come out, they think deep thoughts and with no more brains than you have. But they have one thing you haven't got: a diploma.

Universities = paper mills

#8 Big government is the welfare state for the establishment.

The more the state subsidises, the more they can loot.

#9 She's an idiot.

Sadly far too many voters are just as, if not more, idiotic - and many, if not most, of them graduated from collage with a degree!

#10 Pretty face, bedroom eyes (yeah, I've seen'em like that), a telegenic new party line.

Ignorant, fool, dumb or not she made it into the tenure track. She knows how to play.

#11 Dumb, hispanic female? Maybe but she's getting media time.
Remember 2004 Obama at the DNC?

#13 She is the newest political prototype rolled out by leftist universities.
