AOC Babbles Incoherently About ‘Present’ Vote For Extra Iron Dome $

She is experiencing the evolution that all politicians experienced. First, have enthusiasm and believe in some solutions that will fix everything, then you enter the club and you know more things than you did, then you realize that it is a game. The only difference with AOC, is that she had the camera on her from the very beginning of her political career and so we got to watch all this evolution happen under the camera.

  1. “The only difference with AOC, is that she had the camera on her from the very beginning of her political career”

    Not even close. Hardly anyone heard of her when she was a Capitol Hill intern for Ted Kennedy, or worked for the National Hispanic Institute, or as an organizer for the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. Her election to Congress is so far the end point, not the beginning, of her political career.

  2. “she had the camera on her from the very beginning of her political career”

    Not even close. She had a good decade of political experience — from interning for Ted Kennedy on Capitol Hill to working for the National Hispanic Institute and the 2016 Bernie Sanders campaign — without any general public attention at all before she re-made herself from a well-to-do suburbanite into a “working class bartender from the Bronx” to run for Congress.
