She is one member of Congress who is a fad right now.  I am still not interested in her.
Considering I figured Rap 'music' would pass in a year or two, and I was devastatingly wrong, I'm not making any predictions about Cortez. Anyone that stupid in a position of power is like a like a child playing with sweaty dynamite. Dangerous. Especially with the backing of people stupid enough to elect her.

Ignore her at your peril. She's getting a lot of other dem/coms signing on with her new green deal.

The Dems have always embraced their crackpots, that gives them an extreme bargaining starting position that makes mere Socialism seem "reasonable", and at least closer to the middle. They have lots of ground to give that way, before 'settling' on what they wanted in the first place.

OTOH, the Pubbies shove their Originalists, COnstitutionalists, and the like (what they see as "extremists") under the bus and start to negotiate from what they wanted down to less.

Not one in the lot is a decent horse trader. You always start from a position that lets you give some ground and end up where you really wanted to be, and if you hit it right, with even more.

She's a fad and an annoying one.  I will risk the 'peril' of ignoring her for the satisfaction of not seeing her stupid face and reading her ignorant remarks.

She is alienating more people than are supporting her.  Total embarrassment to the party that can almost never be embarrassed.

She is going to burn out here welcome fast, even among her generation. She is the avocado toast of politics.

Someone upthread hinted at this - she's like rap music: anti-musical, obnoxious, anti-societal, talentless and can be done by those with no musical talent at all.   Heck, I could probably do it.  It started in a small anti-social community and should have had no reason whatsoever to spread beyond that community.  But, it has, and made multi-millionaires of some of its practitioners.  And, it's everywhere now, spreading gangsta ideology.  Definitely an influential force. 

It's used as an exemplification for "caring for the downtrodden" and the cynical or unaware among us use rap and rappers to show how virtuous and socially conscious they are. 

I think she may be very influential in the future.

And that, folks, is the scary part. Even if she would have faded fast, the media (like the 'music' promoters) will make sure she does not.
