Eventually, Fox Will Elect AOC President


Twitter-followers check in time:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- 3.85 million
Nancy Pelosi- 2.42 million
Steny Hoyer- 113K
Adam Schiff- 1.29 million
Kevin McCarthy- 261K
Steve Scalise- 299K
Devin Nunes- 424K
Devin Nunes Cow- 635K
Yep... bigger than Devin Nunes Cow! How'd she get that big? Her tweets are way cool, but maybe the fact that Fox News and other neo-fascist propaganda outlets give her 24/7 coverage has something to do with it too? Former RNC chair Michael Steele, in an OpEd for The Hill tried explaining it to his colleagues: The GOP is making Ocasio-Cortez more popular. He described her as "an unnerving political juggernaut for Democrats and an unhealthy obsession for Republicans" and wrote that she's become just as effective as Señor Trumpanzee "at developing and using social media to create energy around ideas and issues that otherwise wouldn’t be given credence by either political party." He insists that Republicans "seem to believe they have found in Ocasio-Cortez the perfect kind of progressive neophyte they can feast on at their leisure," poking fun at her intelligence when she's obviously far more intelligent than they are.
Republicans have a tendency to fixate their ire (remember Hillary and Obama) in a way that’s more personal than policy focused. Consequently, if any or all of the Green New Deal is packaged as a serious piece of legislation voters could be less interested in arguments that its passage would harm a prosperous economy, stall a rising middle class and weaken a stronger defense/homeland security posture because we will have sold them more on the personality of Ocasio-Cortez.

Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a cash cow for GOP fundraising and attention-grabbing posts on social media (“socialism sucks”). So she likes to dance; I know a few Republicans who also dance, but I digress. And that’s the point: Do not digress. Instead, Republicans should lay out the case that her legislative solution (if she proposes the Green New Deal as actual legislation) is no solution, and pivot to an argument less focused on her personally and more about the flaws of her policy proposals. That will be the quickest and less costly way to remind voters of a basic fact: She’s just a freshman member of Congress. Right?
Madeline Fry noted in an OpEd for the Washington Examiner on Friday that the members of Congress met the members of the Queer Eye vast last week. She suggested 5 members of Congress who can use the Queer Eye touch.

Ted Cruz

From his too-on-the-nose April Fools’ joke to his unfortunate association with the "Zodiac killer," Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a little charisma to develop. The fifth member of the squad, Karamo Brown, is in charge of culture and could help Cruz work on his likability. France, the fashion expert, could upgrade Cruz's bland Hill style. Cruz's new facial hair would probably have to go, too. Even grooming pro Van Ness, with his glorious mustache, would agree the beard just isn't working for him.

Cory Booker

The man doesn’t know how to make a margarita. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) just needs someone to tell him about tequila. Or, as Porowski, the food expert, would say, how not to “get stuck in a rut” with the versatile beverage.

Elizabeth Warren

As her presidential campaign kicks into gear, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) could use a bump in authenticity. Warren received some lampooning after she posted an awkward Instagram live video from her kitchen in December. Chatting with your husband in your home is a good way to appear down-to-earth until you say, “Hold on a sec, I’m gonna get me a beer.”

She’s looking good for being almost 70 years old, but Warren needs a reminder that it’s OK not to be a millennial as long as you don’t try to act like one. As Brown would say, being vulnerable “shows that you are in tune with yourself.”

Mitch McConnell

In season three, the Queer Eye cast spends an entire episode convincing a young man to find a better spirit animal. He starts out identifying as a sloth and ends up calling himself a lion. If they gave Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) a makeover, the Fab Five could help him seem less like a turtle. It’s an unfortunate association, thanks to the downturn of his mouth and his perpetual look of consternation, so anything else would do. Maybe he could try a French bulldog.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

From her earrings to pantsuits, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has great style. But there’s one way the Fab Five could still help her out. If Porowski could give her cooking lessons that involved non-vegan dishes, he’d be doing us all a favor.

And even though House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) would like it, the lawmakers should leave future makeovers to the professionals.

Fox Will Elect AOC President

Fox is going to have to because the Democratic Party will be doing everything in its power to stop her.

edmondo beat me to that one. But he's correct.

"(the Nazis) should lay out the case that (AOC's) legislative solution ... is no solution, and pivot to an argument less focused on her personally and more about the flaws of her policy proposals."
Advice the Nazis so clearly cannot adopt.
1) they don't understand it
2) they couldn't discern a flaw if it was kicking them in the balls
3) the only thing they ever do is personal attacks, because of (1) and (2).
4) their voters only respond to hate and fear. When offered policy critiques, they all look like W did when he was trying, vainly, to read "my pet goat" to those kids and was told that the us was under attack. deer on opiods in the headlights.

That's the same look lefty voters get when they are offered up $hillbillary or obamanation II or Clinton or Kerry or gore. They don't care how badly they've just been fucked by whomever it is... they just vote for them cuz they don't have that red R by their name.

Now, all those trivially obvious points made pedantically... why waste space with the queer eye shit. Give me FDR in a day-glo leisure suit over anyone "made over" by these so-called style gurus. Give me MLK or JFK with zero facebook worshipers over anyone with any number.

I'll take substance over style every day and thrice on holidays.

Give me AOC in 2024, but only after she leaves the democraps for good.

fox is far more likely to get AOC primaried in 2020 than to accidentally get her elected president in 2024.

fox and the DCCC, that is.

a democrap president AOC will still bow down to Pelosi/scummer and nothing will ever change.

An INDEPENDANT president AOC might be the catalyst to get rid of the democrap party altogether. hopefully.
