I don't think he looked uncomfortable at all. He was cordial and joking with her to make her more comfortable.

No one has posted the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dance video?

Yesterday some right-winger named "AnonymousQ" posted an unearthed video of her dancing in college. The intent was presumably to embarrass her and make her look bad. The original tweet/video has been removed, but the video was preserved so you can judge for yourself how terrible a look it is for her...



AOC seems to have some embarrassingly undergraduate ideas about economics, but this video is nothing but pure joy.

(Apparently these clips are cut from a 4-minute version featuring more friends doing a multi-layered BREAKFAST CLUB homage.)

(Also it's actually college, not high-school, so you don't have to feel creepy about watching.)

What's even weirder is that isn't the song they originally used. "Anonymous" re-cut the video and changed the song. Why? Actual guess - it was probably a side effect of the editing since the original song would be all over the place. However, nonetheless I smell Russian troll farm all over this. This is about playing into the Republican obsession with her and cleaving division.

Edit: Added link to orig. video.

Much like the attempts to make Beto look bad that got so much positive attention. The people trying to use these negatively truly live in a different world.

And paying them off afterward so that he can be elected president, let's not forget that fun and illegal aspect. Violating both conservative morals and the rule of law in one fell swoop.

But at least he's doing God's work, is my understanding.

Yeah, I don't get it. If making a video having fun with a Breakfast Club montage is unacceptable, then I guess there is no bridge left to cross back to.

Didn't Trump run on the very similar Keeping It Real/Straight Shooter platform?

While we can't get much worse than what we have now, and I really like this new crop, are we now doomed to evaluate our leaders based on memes and clips and how well they pwn in 140 characters?

I feel like the current crop of conservatives were upset that those no good kids gave fine upstanding principal Vernon a hard time.

That's especially vexing since the current crop of conservatives were freaking kids at the time Breakfast Club was in theatres.

What's wrong with a teenager that they would identify with an authority figure in an 80's John Hughes movie?

I mean, really.

I was a teen for 8 years in the 80's. My parents are dead. My wife's (who was a teen for a different 8 years in the same decade) parents are on the ropes.

There can't be too many left.

I think you're a bit younger than I am but even my brother who was only a teenager for last 2 years in that decade liked the Breakfast club, and there is no one in that movie that he identifies with, and he's a redneck conservative.

I like Ocasio-Cortez, but I do think she has a way to go yet before she can effectively lead. She still says things from time to time that I find naive and/or illogical.

Beto seems to have a better grasp of politics though. I wouldn't mind seeing him make some waves in 2020.

Same.

I mostly love the fact that the GOP old white man brigade is terrified of her - and the diverse youthful movement she represents - though.

She certainly does seem to be a favorite of Fox News, that's for sure. If the front page of their site isn't screaming about Hillary's emails, it's warning America that Ocasio-Cortez wants woman to have the right to wear pants or something.

Another impetuous young buck:
Hours after she was sworn in to Congress, Michigan Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib used an expletive Thursday in pushing for impeaching President Donald Trump.

Speaking to a crowd at an event sponsored by the progressive group MoveOn, Tlaib recalled the moment she won her election in November.

"And when your son looks at you and says, 'Mama look, you won. Bullies don't win,' and I said, 'Baby, they don't,' because we're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf****r," Tlaib said Thursday...

I mean aside from sounding amateurish, it doesn't really help the cause if you broadcast your bias before you have the job. Even if it is a valid bias. I get playing to the crowd. I just don't like it.

It's by a conservative, so it's probably written at the 4th grade level. Should be able to finish it over a morning coffee.

I guess you guys are right. They are our age, but I just have a hard time seeing them as young as I am! I mean come on, Paul Ryan is TWO YEARS OLDER THAN ME! Kavanaugh's 7 years feels a little better. I guess I went to the wrong schools... and by wrong I mean public.
