People CONSTANTLY give me crap for covering AOC as much as I do.
“OMG WHY DO YOU GIVE HER ATTENTION.”
Because she is a GIFT, y’all. She is EVERYTHING that’s wrong with the progressive Left, all in one entertaining package. AOC, and people like her, are DESTROYING any credibility the left could possibly have left.
And I’ll gladly help. People NEED to see how RIDICULOUS things are getting. And I’m going to CONTINUE to expose that.
If you don’t like it, FINE, don’t read it. But you know how I KNOW I’m right? You know why I KNOW exposing her shenanigans to as wide an audience as possible will ultimately HELP the conservative cause?
Because even the Democrats are scared of what she’s capable of destroying.
Exasperated Democrats are trying to rein in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezhttps://t.co/NrifqWoNDT

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already making enemies in the House Democratic Caucus — and some of its members are mounting an operation to bring the anti-establishment, democratic socialist with 2.2 million Twitter followers into the fold.
The effort, described by nearly 20 lawmakers and aides, is part carrot, part stick: Some lawmakers with ties to Ocasio-Cortez are hoping to coax her into using her star power to unite Democrats and turn her fire on Republicans. Others simultaneously warn Ocasio-Cortez is destined for a lonely, ineffectual career in Congress if she continues to treat her own party as the enemy.
“I’m sure Ms. Cortez means well, but there’s almost an outstanding rule: Don’t attack your own people,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.). “We just don’t need sniping in our Democratic Caucus.”
Incumbent Democrats are most annoyed by Ocasio-Cortez’s threat to back primary opponents against members of their ranks she deems too moderate. But their frustration goes beyond that: Democratic leaders are upset that she railed against their new set of House rules on Twitter the first week of the new Congress. Rank and file are peeved that there’s a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn’t deserve.
She’s BULLDOZING them from inside and out.
