    Now you can go back to clipping Trump's toenails.

    Howie told me AOC doesn't get any attention except Fox News, so I don't understand this thread.

    She's hot and she's stupid, perfect combination for news coverage. She also speaks directly to the intelligence of all of the sheep that follow her

    The speech she uses is on par with President Trump.
    Plain english. No "executive speak". Non-"political".

    Republicans like to keep fanning the flames on her so she keeps getting more press coverage. The more she gets, the more the Democratic party appears to be in line with her goals.
    Right painting the left as extreme. Same as left does with the alt-right.

    The difference I think is that maybe 5% of people believe in the alt-right stuff, whereas AOC probably has 15-30% (millennials with student debt and socialism fans) of probably voters.
    I would consider it a danger for the Republicans to keep fanning the flames because it could backfire where that percentage grows from 15-30% to 35-40% which would win a three-way election.
    Go Gophers!

    Saying someone in politics is "stupid" is similar to naming your dog's last dropping of fecal matter.
    You might believe it, and some might disagree that it's appropriate but in the end it just doesn't matter.

    In most cases when someone says someone in politics is "stupid" they really just have different theories on the correct way to solve a problem.

    this is pure political theater. this entire "interaction" is scripted. anyone who allows this to stir any kind of emotion in them is being played.

    i don't want money to be the deciding factor in elections. i also don't want politicians deciding who gets to donate their money to whom.

    it's almost like money if the fatal flaw of democracy. some people allow themselves to be controlled by it, and other people don't exist.

    Of course it's political theater. That is how to get ahead in politics these days. The moron running the country got elected by turning lies, name calling, and middle school behavior into political theater. Other than that you seem to be agreeing with every point AOC was making in her presentation.

    Careful - if you use "AOC" and "three-way" in the same paragraph, S2 and KGF might have a stroke.

    AOC got every witness at the hearing to answer her questions exactly the way she wanted them to. It was a masterful performance.

    Yes of course ..... but you do have to sort of look with some kind of amazement at what the Mercer's and their lieutenants (Bannon, Miller) were able to pull off. It truly could be a once in a lifetime thing for a lot of us. To take a very, very clearly 5% ish niche of a socio-political worldview (Brietbart-ism, alt-right, whatever) and get a puppet figurehead to go out and sell it ... and get that 5% (obviously) plus another 45% to buy it!!

    Look at it with the amazement that you might look at a city burning to the ground, from afar, after being bombed through the night. Something like that.

    But everything thinks they have to run them to be a real candidate. SCAM
    Of course they have. They may not be the most effective. Declaring absolutes is very 2-like. Don't be like 2.

    Originally she was mostly a Fox News obsession. Obviously she's gone beyond that, but they sure helped launch her.

    Such BS, sorry. I'd really like to meet the person who didn't know who to vote for, and then watched a 45sec commercial on TV and was like "My GOD! That's it!!! That's who I should vote for!!!!"

    Person is either a f'in liar ... or a damned fool. Either way, strip their vote.



    Biggest SCAM in the history of the world. They singlehandedly are the root cause for the reason that money in politics has exploded exponentially.

    Often it's dissuading you from voting for for the other guy/gal. I.E. I don't like Trump, but after seeing 300 "Hillary is Satan" ads, I just coudln't pull the trigger for her.

    Or you were completely wrong, as usual.
