Dammit. Now I Got a Crush On Her Even More


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just quoted from the classics. To wit:


Making it a nice touch is that she quotes the author of the graphic novel rather than the questionably okay 2009 movie version. That means IMHO she's not faking this. She knows which version matters to the generation(s) to which she speaks and hopes to appeal.

So to the Concern Trolls that tried to bash her on Politico earlier, talking about "reining her in," she beat you, sons. She rolled up and mic-dropped and rolled away with you all just standing there going "what the hell happened."

So like I said before, DAMMIT. I think I have a crush on her.

I just wanna let everyone know I'm not gonna go all creepy or anything, okay? We cool? We cool. I just... will start this little altar over against the wall with a few pictures, and some candles and voodoo dolls of her enemies and...

I wouldn't trip too hard: everyone with two functioning neurons to rub together has a crush on her about now because she is what the future looks like and not only did we doubt that there would be one, but damn she looks good.
I love how Paul Krugman pointed out that not only was her tax proposal not radical, it was backed by reputable economists and lower than the marginal rates in the time after WW2 that all of the right wing seems so focused on returning us to.
The people who find her ascendance scary are the ones whose ascendance we find scary to this day,
