Real Socialist Candidates of Genius

As the Democrats try to figure out their new generation of leadership, we're learning plenty about the intellectual acumen of our putative betters. The new face of this generation might be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-avowed "Democratic Socialist" who offered this pearl of wisdom concerning our healthcare system:
So, we’re paying for this system. We — Americans have the sticker shock of healthcare as it is, and what we’re also not talking about is, why aren’t we incorporating the cost of all the funeral expenses of those who died because they can’t afford access to healthcare? That is part of the cost of our system.
No ma'am, it isn't. Then again, perhaps she's right, as this Tweet makes the connection (h/t Instapundit):

Volume, volume, volume!
It's quite cost-effective.

It is truly scary how ignorant someone with a prestigious college degree can be, but I guess we've known that pretty well since 2008, haven't we?

Jury is still out for Trump, but the last decent national leader we had was Reagan... From some Podunk college in IL.

AOC is sort of the new LOL, isn't it? Just think, if we had nationalized health care, nobody would die! Ever!

As somebody recently quipped, D's and R's have different interpretations of the 1st Amendment. D's want R's to be silent. R's want D's like AOC to have a megaphone.
