Ocasio-Cortez Currently Backs Pelosi, 'Most Progressive Candidate,' For Speaker

Ocasio-Cortez Currently Backs Pelosi, 'Most Progressive Candidate,' For Speaker

One thing is clear early on in Ocasio-Cortez's career: She's not your average Democrat.

Palin's tweet was about a video in which Ocasio-Cortez referred to the "three chambers of Congress", then the "three chambers of government", which she called "the presidency, the Senate and the House". So Ocasio-Cortez is rallying the Left to continue primarying establishment Democrats, make the caucus more progressive, take control of the government, and advance a socialist agenda. "On one end you will never be good enough, or experienced enough or knowledgeable enough", she said. So they ran with it, unironically declaring it was evidence that she's mentally unfit for office and claiming (accurately and with no self-awareness) that the Electoral College was meant to keep popular figures like her out of power.

"We experienced this level of hysteria with [Sen.] Bernie [Sanders]". So get your squad together.

Psssttt! While you're here we need your help. "We recruited and supported Ocasio-Cortez all the way to a historic victory", the executive director of the group told Politico in a statement, "and now we're going to repeat the playbook". He penned an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal in July urging New Yorkers in the midterm elections to vote for Joe Crowley, who was the candidate endorsed by the Working Families Party after Ocasio-Cortez beat him for the Democratic nomination in the primary.

It's so inspiring to see Ocasio-Cortez begin what will undoubtedly be a journey of political firsts.

Roger Federer puts thought of 100th title to back of his mind
After his victory over Kevin Anderson in the semi-finals on Sunday, Djokovic took to social media with a shout-out for his driver. Zverev 18 times filed through, committed 2 double faults and converted one break point.

She noted the lack of racial and ideological diversity among the signers and the absence of a "broad-based coalition" and warned Democrats that they could become more conservative. Meanwhile, only a handful of incumbents refuse to take corporate PAC money, a number that is also likely to rise given the pressure of a potential primary.

Outgoing Rep. Michael Capuano, a strong progressive from MA, was felled in a primary this year in which his acceptance of corporate money was a major campaign issue.

Ocasio-Cortez re-posted the graphic with the comment, "Fox News discovered our vast conspiracy to take care of children and save the planet [along with laughing emoji]". Like when she said, accurately, that Election Day should be a national holiday. That's really what we need to do to save this country. The more the right tries to signal its disapproval of the Ocasio-Cortez agenda, the more it sounds jealous that progressives are more amped about her than conservatives are about, I don't know, Sen.

Ocasio-Cortez's response not only highlights the problem of Columbus Day, but the problem of over-worked and underpaid United States workers, who receive the lowest amount of benefits in the job market of any developed country. So far, the best option Democrats have is Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), but Tuesday, Fudge came under fire for writing a letter of support for an offender in a domestic violence case who is now the principle person of interest in a murder investigation.
