So, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Doesn't Know Anything

Or rather the socialist wunderkind knows as much as any 28-year-old lefty activist with a degree in something she doesn’t really understand who got involved in politics to make a difference between the bartending gigs and protest marches.

Going on Firing Line, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, dubbed the “future of the party” by the DNC, showed she didn’t know anything. Her comments about Israel, basic economics were rambling nonsense.

And that’s what you expect from a 28-year-old whose knowledge of politics is all online talking points with no depth, range or context.

The ridiculous thing here is the ambitious effort by the Dems and the media to roll out  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as some sort of bellwether. It’s silly and it’s even unfair to her.  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is ridiculously unqualified for anything above interning. She won the Dem primary because of her last name, aggressive DSA backing and an opponent who was out to lunch.

 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won’t be the only inept and unqualified member of congress. There are a whole bunch of them. Rep Maxine Waters has made the most of it. But nobody in their right mind makes Maxine Waters into the face of the Dems. Trying to blow up  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is already backfiring because, aside from everything else, she isn’t ready.
