Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is all about having standards.
And if you don’t like it, tough.
The representative is calling out Joe Biden and the Democratic Party for not measuring up.
In an interview with New York Magazine published Monday, AOC let loose on the low-standard turkeys.
And by the way, she knows about all the other political parties in all the planet’s other countries:
“In any other country, Joe Biden and I would not be in the same party, but in America, we are.”
Joe’s not even worthy of being in her same group.
In her view, it’s a problem the organization’s created for itself — it’s become “too big of a tent.”
The party’s clamped down on criticism; luckily, Alexandria’s popped onto the scene and led the revolution:
“We’re not allowed to talk about anything wrong the Democratic Party does. I think I have created more room for dissent, and we’re learning to stretch our wings a little bit on the Left.”
But she’s tired of getting “getting singled out over and over again” by people like Pelosi.
Indeed — NYM’s headline reads, “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reshaped Her Party’s Agenda, Resuscitated Bernie Sanders’s Campaign, and Hardly Has a Friend in Town.”
She’s may need friends — from Bonchie’s January 1st coverage:
AOC should probably kick her revolution into high gear, because she may not be around in Washington much longer.
As RedState reported on Monday, multiple blue strongholds are set to lose House seats after the 2020 census. This is due to population shifts to places like Texas, Florida, and Arizona. California saw the largest out-migration, with New York not far behind. That means that both states are almost certainly going to lose representatives. The question is, who gets the short end of the stick within the redistricting process?
We may have an answer, and it’s something that’s been rumored for a while.

Getting back to Quality Control, it’s about cats: The party’s letting “anybody who the cat dragged in call themselves a progressive. There’s no standard.”
AOC’s not afraid to stand up for standards:
