Yeah, OK, conservatives. Guffaw all you want at 29-year-old political rock star Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The young lady is a gaffe machine.

"Three chambers of government." "Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs." Getting tangled up in the facts in asserting that Pentagon savings could finance "Medicare for All." And yes — she did use the word "tippy-top" to describe upper-income taxpayers on "60 Minutes" in defending her recent proposal to skyrocket top rates to 70%.

It's not that we underestimate her.

It's that, to borrow from Mencken, nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.

Warren is no threat. Cortez the Killer (sorry, Neil Young) might very well be.

In the fullness of time, H.L. Mencken has proven correct in his assessment. But one should also not underestimate the perspicacity of P.T. Barnum, who understood the ability of attractive people to succeed at promising "free" stuff to suckers who don't even realize that they are paying for it, and that what they are being sold is worthless, as well.   
We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. -VDH

As Trump has demonstrated time and again it doesn't matter how dangerous Occasional-Cramps is or isn't. Mocking her and making her a laughing stock neutralizes any threat she may pose. So far all the mocking has gotten Radical Leftists who agree with her like Whoopie Goldberg to tell her to sit down and shut up. That's pretty big in my book.

Ridicule is a powerful weapon - we shouldn't hesitate to use it.

But we should also be gravely concerned that such a total brainstem could advance to the office this one has, and also be aware that to a significant number of people, she makes complete sense.

This broad is a flash in the pan just like Cindy Sheehan and a whole list of cracked pots that make national news because the MSM pimped them and then disapear because the MSM can't use them anymore. Let's all remember that the only reason she won the Primary in that district is because the election laws were totally effed up in NY State. They split the days national office Primaries occurred and when state Primaries were.

This horse faced jackass will not win reelection for 2 reasons. Pelosi isn't going to fund her in the Primary. Too many controllable Rat functionaries in this safe Rat seat will be running that she will fund. Secondly NY State will sort out this bizarre Primary schedule law to stop shit like this happening again. Cuomo will make sure of that.
