Even When She's Wrong

The representative out of New York's 14th Distinct (Bronx and Queens) tells Anderson Cooper that even when she's factually wrong, she's morally right.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tells Anderson Cooper that even when she’s factually wrong, she’s still ‘morally right’
I have to admit that she's entertaining.  For some reason, I get the feeling that the good citizenry of her district elected her, not so much for her stunning intellect, but more as a hearty "screw you" to federal governance.  I can almost hear the thought processes.  "Let's send this idiot to Washington.  She'll be good for comic relief, and might actually manage to collapse the whole system."

From a libertarian standpoint, she might be just exactly what Congress needs.  None of her legislation is in danger of passing, and her public pronouncements are certainly whimsical.  I don't know that anyone takes her seriously, not even her constituents.  I, for one, have taken to calling her Occasional Cortex.

When they start saying right is wrong and bad is good, that just might be the time to not agree with them but to run them out on a rail.
