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.
