    Good question.
    Brett Kavanaugh: In high school I marked off every day on my calendar as DO NOT DO ANY RAPES TODAY

    Republicans: [applauding]

    AOC: I made a dance video with my friends

    I don't agree with a lot of her political positions, but I loved her dancing video. What the fuck is wrong with dancing? Are these critics all conservative Baptists? It's like when the assholes posted a photo of Obama smoking what looked like a joint when he was in college. It only added to his image as the cool president.

    I do love her energy, her enthusiasm and her optimism. She's young and inexperienced and she has a lot to learn, but the thing I like best about the Democratic party is its diversity of thought, and ideology, as well as the diversity of ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs, etc. It does make it harder to compromise, but that's the way it should be. Democrats are a better reflection of the country. The Republicans on the other hand, frequently remind me of sheep. I prefer cats to sheep.

    Oh my goodness. A high school student dancing and singing? Who do you think this is going to offend, the pastor in Footloose?
    and
    "She'll never recover from the world seeing her dancing adorably and having fun with her friends."

    "I want Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to give me dance lessons," Star Trek actor George Takei tweeted, while actor Russell Crowe declared her "fantastic".
    My goodness, the BBC has seriously gone down hill.

    It is only a matter of time before they release a bomb and leak a video of her singing while driving in a car! This garbage happened with Clinton (when running for office), then Obama (running for office... and in office... OMFG he had a coffee when he saluted back to someone in the military, steak sauce on a burger?!?!), and now some freshman House Representative (she danced in High School?!?!) who apparently is the heir apparent for whipping target of the right-wing once Pelosi retires.

    I suppose the good news is that they are wasting resources digging up videos like this and they aren't finding anything of even the least bit of controversy. The bad news is, 30% of the nation have political IQs in the 60s and not only let something like this affect them, but get them in a frenzy of 'OMFG this woman is a danger to America because she danced'.

    We are told about "Trump Derangement Syndrome" because we complain about Trump publicly felating Putin in a press conference or talking the stock market down over 10% in less than a month or his absurd comments/actions with North Korea/Kim Jong Un.

    There are substantial differences. Democratic Socialists are full-on socialists, i.e. they want public ownership of means of production. DSA is rather a radical outfit. I do not think the JPF/PFJ comparison is apt.

    Who cares about her dancing? Her politics is the problem, not her dance moves.

    I tell you what, I'll get a little concerned about her politics, when 'her politics' numeric support approaches the number of alt-reality & neanderthalic Repugnicans in the House.

    Good to learn I'm not a Democratic Socialist. At least in your perverted book...
