Grasping at Straws - New Dem Magical Negroe™ star to rattle DC establishment

Democrats are racing to figure out how to handle Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose primary win over a longtime incumbent is set to shake up the party’s Washington establishment.

Ocasio-Cortez’s shock victory over Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) made the 28-year-old an overnight sensation in the Big Apple and across the country, leading Democrats to bombard her with messages of congratulations and offers to cooperate in the future.

“The entire spectrum of House Democrats, party leadership, [campaign] leadership, is trying to assess what she wants to do and how ready she is to play ball,” said one Democratic source.
They want to know “how does her coming to Washington change my plan, or even help my plan?”

Democrats are largely thrilled to welcome the telegenic rising star to their ranks, though she is already ruffling some feathers.

Ocasio-Cortez plans to hit the campaign trail for at least three other Democratic candidates in primary races this year who are backed by Justice Democrats, a PAC that supports progressives.

That includes Missouri congressional candidate Cori Bush, a former teacher, registered nurse and pastor who is vying to unseat longtime Democratic Rep. Lacy Clay.

"We're trying to take back the House, but it seems like they're just trying to go after Democrats. It makes no sense," said Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.), who vigorously defended Clay's work on the Financial Services Committee. "I would hope that the new member coming in would ... keep the eye on the prize."

A source close to Ocasio-Cortez said the candidate is not interested in following the conventional Democratic playbook.

What’s the point, the source said, or “we’re gonna get the same results we have had for the last decade.”

Hard left communism in the fashion of Fidel Castro is the only thing that can save the democrats.

It's funny - a brand new person joins their ranks and they let them start getting the big attention and calling the shots.  That is very telling about the state of their party!
I guess they have to try and recreate their latest success but I think Obama is a once in 100 years kind of thing.

The air is filled with the smell of desperation and patchouli.

I know, that is why I said grasping at straws - they know the past 10 years have been a disaster for them and at this point they are willing to try anything to turn it around.  Like they said: "A source close to Ocasio-Cortez said the candidate is not interested in following the conventional Democratic playbook.

What’s the point, the source said, or “we’re gonna get the same results we have had for the last decade.”  "

At least the finally have someone who recognizes that they need to change, but don't see that happening till the ones like Pelosi Difi, Waters, and Clinton are dead.  They are never going to let go of their power and will stand firm in the way of change.

Sux to be them!
