Payin' the cost to be the boss

That's really boss:
"Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it's creating all of this conversation. Why?" Ocasio-Cortez said. "Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried."

"So people are like, 'Oh it's unrealistic. Oh it's vague. Oh it doesn't address this little minute thing,'" Ocasio-Cortez continued. "And I'm like, 'You try. You do it. Cuz you're not. Cuz you're not. So, until you do it, I'm the boss.' How bout that?"
So who is our favorite Congresscritter most like?

Or maybe this?

Or is it this?

Or, ultimately, is it this?

If you said it's most like Mussolini, take the cannoli. You doubt that? Consider her response to John Cornyn:

No, Hallmark cards have more thought behind them than your response

I love this girl. She's so clueless. Never fails to make me chuckle.

She may be clueless, or unwise, or in lala land, or whatever. But she's not ONLY that. She's also dangerous. Because that cluelessness exists in combination with her moral certitude and her willingness to use force and her communication skills and her good looks (people can quibble, but put her next to Diane Feinstein and the point is clear enough.)

My hope is that by driving the party further leftward they will make themselves toxic to the reasonable middle. My mother voted for Amy Klobuchar in November because Trump is uncouth. My mother is deeply pro-life. She values decency and kindness. And she was absolutely hoodwinked. If you did a blind taste test she would be staunchly conservative. But she doesn't see through the manipulation. Would that AOC repulses as many people as she emboldens.

And actually, I think that's quite likely. Trump is smart enough to call forth and use that dangerous honesty to his advantage. Romney Republicans are too stupid, cowardly, or corrupt.

Trump saw the future of the DNC and how to beat it. Thats why he spent much of his SOTUS decrying the evil of socialism, and declared America would never become socialist.
It was the kick off to the 2020 campaign.

Pelosi/Schumer et al my try to reign in or marginalize the bernies and AOCs, but Trump knows the media well, and how they cant resist putting these two front and center.

whoever is the DNC nominee, Trump will wrap AOC (and the Green new deal) around their throat til they cant breathe... and the media will (unwittingly) help him.

That's likely, although I would not be surprised if Pelosi figures out a way to wrap AOC in some scandal to neutralize her. You're already hearing people questioning her ethics concerning paying her boyfriend, where she lives, etc.
