According to Max Boot.

Ocasio-Cortez reminds me of Sarah Palin, another talented young communicator who made a big splash in national politics before having her lack of knowledge painfully exposed. This is a cautionary tale for Ocasio-Cortez

Max Boot Washington Post. LMFAO

He must have hit a nerve cause she fired off a couple tweets of her own,


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ✔
@AOC Replying to @AOC
Let’s refocus our energy and coverage to policies instead of personality. Right now, 800,000 workers are without a paycheck. The President is holding gov operations hostage so that he can build a monument to himself on the southern border that the maj of Americans don’t want.



Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ✔
@AOC
Naturally, the same week we kick-start a nat’l convo on marginal tax rates endorsed by Nobel-Prize winning economists, I’m being described as “vacuous.” If you’re allowed to characterize female politicians as “unlikeable,” are we allowed to describe takes like these “resentful?”


I am reminded of the old adage

"better to keep your mouth shut and let people think your a fool, than to open it and remove any doubt".

She is a funny flash in the pan.

She does seem a bit more fired up than normal.

With her age and name recognition, I think she has a chance for a political career. She is too left to be my favorite, but if she is in this for the long haul, I would hope she takes time to slow down and learn as much as possible from her experiences.

That way she isn't 45 and saying the dumb #.

Not hardly! The future has a face and AOC is wearng it.

It doesnt matter if she gets things wrong sometimes.
It doesnt matter that she gets details wrong.
It doesnt matter is inexperienced.

None of it matters because she is morally correct!

Pretty much my analysis from the beginning. Like Palin before her, and Trump for that matter, they are being propped up by the establishment to fail and demoralize their respective movements.

And like you said, Ocasio-Cortez makes it easy on them. She likes to pretend that she is all about ideas and policies, but all she does is steal other people's policies and present them as her own. Even more than dangerous than that she doesn't even understand the basic elements of these policies. Apply some maieutics and ask her to explain the policies she is espousing and her eyes quickly go crossed and utter nonsense comes tumbling out of her mouth.

Like it or not, the comparison to Sarah Palin is accurate. AOC is completely inexperienced, and most of her ideas are painfully naïve.

Morally correct.

Kind of like the current President.

Don't bother him with the facts, he'll make up his own.

If you notice when Max Boot criticizes her

Ocasio-Cortez reminds me of Sarah Palin
she accuses him of attacking all women politicians

.” If you’re allowed to characterize female politicians as “unlikeable,”

Maybe the same as people who are obsessed with her, both the left and the right are literally obsessed with this person

Cortez is not like Palin.

With Palin, you were encouraged to insult, degrade her children, her looks, the way she spoke, and her intelligence.

Do that with Cortez and the left loses their sh#t.

What does this even say?

By the way being concerned with politics doesn't make you obsessive.

Yeah not so much. The only political equivalent to Sarah Palin is sitting in the Oval Office as we speak.

I will tell you that without Sarah Palin breaking ground in 2008, Trump would not have won over the Midwest as easily.

This is why we like her,

being "concerned" with politics is one thing, being obsessed is finding videos of Her dancing and pretending it is a scandal, it is obsessing over what she wears, how she talks, what she does "etc"

same as people were obsessed with Palin, same as people are obsessed with Trump, and Hillary, and insert any politicians name




the left, right and centre have become obsessed with the idolatry of politicians

Because only those two politicians have ever said anything cringe worthy?

I think you misunderestimate the clever stupid of the average politician. Trump himself was there on 7-Eleven after the World Trade Center came down and despite the negative press, covfefe.

LOL
