Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Quotes 'Watchmen' on Twitter

This paragraph explains perfectly why everyone in Washington is so afraid of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

House democrats are apparently so exasperated by newly elected New York Congresswoman, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, that they're willingly going on record saying they'd like to "rein" her in.

The stunt backfired as the dance went viral and Ocasio-Cortez dancing her way into her Congressional office in a short video for Twitter. She's repeatedly stated her support for legalization and advocated to fix the harms caused by the War on Drugs.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, left, and D-N.Y., Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., center, walk down the House steps. So it will be interesting to see if she becomes another champion for marijuana in Congress the same way she's taking on climate change, income inequality and other issues. "But it's a good example of what I'm talking about, a bright shiny new object, came out of nowhere and surprised people when she beat a very experienced congressman", she told CNN in December.

Democratic leaders are mostly upset that the Bronx native railed against their new House rules on Twitter during the first week of the new Congress. Rank and file are peeved that there's a grassroots movement to try to win her a top committee post they feel she doesn't deserve. "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Ocasio-Cortez also could be an important ally for committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters. "This is basic stuff, especially if you hold yourself out to be the champion of workers".




"She's new here, feeling her way around", said Representative Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.).

"I think that there's a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct than about being morally right", she told host Anderson Cooper.

In responding to the Politico article Friday morning, Ocasio-Cortez quoted a character from the comic book Watchmen to signal her intention to resist the influence of more experienced lawmakers.

The Politico report follows criticism from high profile former members of Congress like Democrat Claire McCaskill, a former senator from Missouri.
