Apparently Ms. Ocasio-Cortez wanted to be on the Ways and Means Committee -- even though freshmen typically aren't named to that committee. She didn't make the cut. I hope she finds herself banished to a few backwater committees that don't affect anything.

Poof !  There goes my prediction that they'd put her on either the Rules or the Judiciary Committee.

Drat.  Wrong again.

Probably being selected for the Committee on Vapid Thought and Silly Ideas. Possibly to head the committee, but I guess they usually donĺt select freshman members to head committees, but may make an exception for her.

There are other members who are more experienced in vapid thinking, even if they are not as good as she, who could chair the Committee on Vapid Thought and Silly Ideas.

If she were appointed chairperson of something, could we call her the Chairchick?

I don't know. Somehow she reminds me of Kelly Bundy.  "Gee, my hair tastes good today !"

She's really going full tilt to self-destruct. Now she's dissing Joe Lieberman.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6581851/New-party-dis-Ocasio-Cortez-mocks-aging-Joe-Liberman-hoping-shes-not-future.html

I didn't like Lieberman when he was in office, but I respected him. As for Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, she's going to be in for some real-life bitch slapping very soon if she doesn't STFU. You just don't pee on someone who was your party's VP candidate and who served for 24 years in the senate. Her problem is that she seems to believe her press releases.

If someone wants to say I'm going on an old guy rant, I'm good with that.

That's a member of congress. Is this where we are? We're going to be doing rappers and "urban speak" in congress now? I mean, that's straight out of Comacho's administration in Idiocracy.

If that keeps up, congress is going to look like the Jerry Springer show, where you have a bunch of dumbass white suburbanites talking like urban black yutes.

Sheĺs so over the top Iĺve read speculation that sheĺs a Trumpster plant to discredit the hard left.

Nobody seems to want to believe the left actually believes what they say and wants to force us by government fiat and violence to obey them.

Iĺve also read that she is doing exactly what Pelosi wants her to do, make Pelosi and Schumer seem ômoderateö.

Occams razor applies.  She was elected by a combination of Bernites and minorities.

This portrait of a diverse electorate lifting Ocasio-Cortez to victory contrasts starkly with the prevalent media narrative, which attributes Ocasio-Cortezĺs win to demographic factors alone. To myriad pundits, the explanation for her success is simple: The district is increasingly populated by Latinos and other nonwhite voters, and they chose Ocasio-Cortez because they simply did not want a white man like Joe Crowley representing them.

Literally elected by virtue of being a minority woman, with no nod to any accomplishments or credentials.

I tend to agree with you on this.

While Iĺm willing to consider other possibilities, if push came to shove Iĺm with you, identity/tribal politics.

Howĺs that diversity working out for you former congressman Crowley?

If we're lucky it will start to tear the Democrat party apart.  Dissention within the ranks.
However, the GOP is too stupid to seize upon it and solidify.

I also agree with this.

A big problem, and we here contribute to it, is all the press this first term, zero accomplishment person gets. She gets nearly as much media exposure as Trump, while new congressmen like Dan Crenshaw get relatively none.

Obviously from my posts and links here, people know I love getting a good laugh out of Twitchy. However I'd give that up in a heartbeat if Twitter just up and died tomorrow.

It was started with good intentions, and even showed some early on - like getting news reports out of regions of the world where the press was shut down, getting near real time updates during emergencies and disasters, etc. It has now just become a hate platform the brings out the worst in people across the political spectrum, and makes "stars" out of idiots that otherwise would have little or no news coverage. Bronx chick would likely be just another new member of congress if it weren't for the constant social media deluge.

Useful idiots like her are great for the dem establishment...until they get elected  

I bet she'd be insane in the sack.  But then you'd have to worry about getting your car set on fire for not texting her back...
