To say Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset about Republican efforts to craft an anti-choice bill that will wind its way through the courts to deliver a fatal blow to Roe v. Wade before the Supremes would be a gross understatement.

She is righteously pissed….

…”a creepy theological order led by a mad king.”
I’m quite sure I’ve never read a more succinct, accurate description of the GOP in the age of Trump.

Kudos to AOC for crafting the Tweet of the Week.

Look: I love you guys & want to support you. But one of the reasons I come here is to escape the endless “OMG OMG OMG AOC SNEEZED!!!!” posts that are infesting both progressive websites like DailyKos, and mainstream and conservative news sites. Yes, I get that she’s pretty; I get that a lot of people have a crush on her so she’s clickbait. But she said nothing fresh here, nothing others haven’t been saying for years, nothing others didn’t tweet in a much more timely fashion, and nothing others aren’t saying much more powerfully and coherently. Shifting to climate… Read more »

Some of us like to hear from her, and about her. By all means continue your “going off” if it makes you feel better. AOC is smart and accomplished whether you see it or not.

One story out of 18 on the front page is too much for you?

No, the outsized number of stories about her compared to her legion of equally or more qualified and effective freshman colleagues is what is bothering me, as well as the fact that Democrats are buying in so totally to the marketing of her. I really didn’t want to get into a lengthy argument that simply proves my point, alas, but there is nothing special about her that demands posts about her every clunky retort. This would have gotten zero attention if Katie Porter or Lauren Underwood, both far more qualified and effective freshmen, had posted it. I just wish we… Read more »

I personally am watching Katie Hill of CA-25. As vice chair of the oversight committee she wields tremendous power, and while her activities don’t grab headlines like a saucy quip on Twitter, that’s where the real action is.

She’s one of my top picks too. As you say, she was named vice chair of the powerful government oversight committee and she is the co-representative to leadership (with the equally promising Joe Neguse) from the freshman class. Her questioning of witnesses is so sharp I expect that with a little experience she too could make Jeff Sessions nerrrrrvousssss (like Kamala Harris did). Like a lot of her colleagues who flipped seats and are in swing districts (her DC roommate Lauren Underwood is another), Hill is constantly in touch with constituents, at meetings, rallies, town halls, awards ceremonies, you name… Read more »

I like Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a lot…but she’s new in this position, and I don’t think every social media tactic she takes is particularly good. This tweet is an example. What does her conversation accomplish other than deepening the divide and fostering tribalism? Who is encouraged to change their political behavior at all by this dialogue? Who does it benefit? I know that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez cares about this issue – but she can better demonstrate it by speaking to it, and not taking an opportunity to try to deflect the conversation to her pet issues. Yes we need to address climate… Read more »

She’s saying things that need to be said – and the men sure aren’t saying them.

Like I said, I respect her a lot and hope she has a long and productive career in government. And often she is saying things that need to be said. But in this case she’s calling names, deflecting from a major issue, and speaking in a crassly cynical and insulting voice rather than speaking to the humanity of this issue. And I think that helps fire up the base…but we don’t need to win the base on this. We need to show that we are a party that will govern for all Americans. We should show tolerance for Christians, even… Read more »

I feel like the evangelicals are trying to force their beliefs on us which i think are ingnorant and sould be cast aside. Nobody tells the men they can’t get women pregnant. It takes two to get pregnant not onr, I don’t hear anyone saying lock up the men.
