Already, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets to be referenced by a monogram: AOC. Wow, that usually takes decades. FDR, LBJ, JFK, RBG…..Are there any other mere legislators we’ve ever referenced that way, even after a long tenure?
IMHO, with the glistening blood-hued labials and the huge, protruding eyes, she looks like : what if Monica Lewinsky had mated with a cockr….no I won’t say that, cuz of cucharacha. Any insect with big compound ocular organs will do.
But, she is young! And that is much. (I mean, we oughta know, we were the generation that invented the hegemony of youth for youth’s sake. )
When she’s interviewed, the impression I get is that the interlocutor is looking for some kinda hidden wisdom in her utterances. There must be something they’re missing, it can’t be that, uh, she’s not making very much sense…
I take issue with the idea of punitively taxing the high-income people. Does she think the talented among us will go on working their, ah, donkeys to exhaustion to make high incomes if they don’t get to keep the money? Is it now naive to point out that people have always worked much harder and better when the goal is personal enrichmnet? That’s the reason we grew so much more cotton under the sharecropper system after the Civil War than before, under slavery.
She and her two colleagues the foul-mouthed Palestinian and the turbaned termagant (lucky Ilhan: her surname is so recognizably Orientalist..) are grabbing all,the interviews and headlines on the Demoncrat side these days. I almost (but not quite) feel sorry for their less exotic female contemporaries like Gillibrand and Harris who at least have some credentials…but nah: they brought this infestation on themselves. (And unfortunately, on us as well.)
