'Change Is Closer Than We Think.' Inside Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Unlikely Rise

By Charlotte Alter

Every 10 minutes or so, someone knocks on the big wooden door of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s office on Capitol Hill. The noise makes staffers stiffen. It’s almost always a harmless fan, one of dozens who arrive each day, leaving neon-colored Post-it notes as devotional offerings. But in her first three months in Congress, aides say, enough people have threatened to murder Ocasio-Cortez that Capitol Police trained her staff to perform risk assessments of her visitors.
This is the daily reality for America’s newest human Rorschach test. Wonder Woman of the left, Wicked Witch of the right, Ocasio-Cortez has become the second most talked-about politician in America, after the President of the United States. Since beating 10-term incumbent Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary to represent New York’s 14th District last June, the 29-year-old former bartender has pressured 2020 presidential candidates into supporting her Green New Deal, made campaign-finance reform go viral and helped activists banish Amazon from Queens with a couple of tweets. No lawmaker in recent memory has translated so few votes into so much political and social capital so quickly. Her Twitter following has climbed from about 49,000 last summer to more than 3.5 million. Thousands of people tune in to watch her make black-bean soup or re-pot her houseplants on Instagram Live. Immediately after she tweeted the name of her signature red lipstick—Beso, by Stila—it sold out online.

Way, way more Octo

She's great at showing people who have an IQ above 81 that the left is truly deranged and doesn't care about the future of their country
There is a large youth voting Bloc who choose to overlook her idiocy. What she said with people focusing on data and literal facts vs the morals. I am gonna piss some folks off here, but it is true: The Christian right allowed themselves to subscribe to the same thinking in the 80's and 90's. This is just the same thing with a different book or books defining morality.
The new religion is the state. And that sucks.
Obozo going to give the freshman a pep talk next week...after they come back from Spring Break...
