Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Monday compared herself to Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), saying that the outgoing congressman was considered a "genius" when he was elected at 28 while she's been viewed as a "fraud."

"Double standards are Paul Ryan being elected at 28 and immediately being given the benefit of his ill-considered policies considered genius; and me winning a primary at 28 to immediately be treated with suspicion & scrutinized, down to my clothing, of being a fraud," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, linking to an article from Vox editor-at-large Ezra Klein entitled "Paul Ryan's long con."

Maybe it is because she is a fraud. Running around like Jenny from the Block when she grew up in the richest area of the COuntry, Westchester.

Nobody has called you a fraud sweetie. They've called you an idiot, a dingbat, a nitwit. But you appear to be an authentic commie.

What fraud? She's got that "Jew" thing going for her now.   Oh wait she is Catholic?  Oh whatever is a shiksa to do?

I hardly rate Paul Ryan a genius. More a loser, quitter, a selfish profiteer.

Yeah. I don't ever remember a ticker tape parade for anything Ryan ever did. He was the man who wasn't there for his whole career.

Apparently, she thinks the word "idiot" is spelled f-r-a-u-d.

Years ago a Jewish co-worker explained to me that there are three types of Jews, Ethnic Cultural, and Convenient. AOC appears to b the third type.

Don’t Underestimate Dumb Voters’ Appetite For Idiot Leftist Politicians
Kurt Schlichter
Posted: Dec 13, 2018

You should not for a moment fail to appreciate the risk posed to your freedom by left-wing It-Fascists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O’Rourke. There’s an undeniable appeal of this kind of Potemkin Politician for the kind of morons that the Democrats count on at the ballot box. Sure, the Nitwit Naïf is ridiculously ignorant and dumb – she knows nothing and demonstrates no capacity to learn anything. Sure, Tex Kennedy is a meat puppet dancing on the strings held by his masters. But this is the same country where the voters elected Barack Obama, twice.

They can absolutely win power, which means the leftist elite that controls them could win power, and that means disaster for our country. Like an our-country-splitting-apart kind of disaster. So, we need to accurately assess the threat they pose and figure out how to fight it. We need to not fool ourselves into thinking that these two dorks are too goofy for the voters to ever elect, particularly if some Fredocon doofus whose dad used to be a mailman tries to play spoiler.

Remember that a plurality of the voters voted for Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit; the Electoral College is not going to save our freedom forever. We need to get woke to the threat and act accordingly.

Though mocking them is important, because they are clowns and clowns should be mocked, mocking them is not nearly enough. Mockery really only helps reinforce our own morale, assuring ourselves of what we already know – that they are terrible. Our mockery doesn’t affect the dummies. Most liberal voters are just as civics-illiterate as AOC is, so they just shrug when she botches the three branches of government.  ...  Townhall

That's because Paul Ryan was elected by smarter voters.

Elijah Cummings ought to happy.

With her in the news even He doesn't look as stupid as usual.

In Vol 2 the weapons come out in a winner take all war on two fronts.

Vol 3 opens with the rigged murder trial of the villain in a Viking Court under Viking law to set the stage for the hero's own murder trial.

Ryan actually made Biden look like a genius, in comparison.
