    I recall you - in late 2008 - glossing Sarah TQ as "Ronald Reagan in a dress!!"

    I am going to steal it from u and say AOC is "John F Kennedy in a dress!".

    Carry on :-)

    Ocasio-Cortez melts down on twitter over getting fact-checked

    Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a meltdown in a series of tweets Monday over getting fact-checked by organizations like The Washington Post and PolitiFact.

    “Facts are facts, America,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday. “We should care about getting things right. Yet standards of who gets fact-checked, how often + why are unclear. This is where false equivalency+bias creeps in, allowing climate deniers to be put on par w/scientists, for example.”

    She also took issue with being fact-checked the same number of times as White House press secretary Sarah Sanders by PolitiFact, which is owned by nonprofit Poynter Institute for Media Studies.

    “She’s been serving for almost 2 years,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I’ve served 4 days. Why is she fact-checked so little? Is she adhering to some standard we don’t know about?”

    I say true things all the time – I’d hope most do,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote. “When does Politifact choose to rate true statements?”

    Another tweet called out WaPo for giving her four “Pinocchios” — the same number President Donald Trump received over the number of people who died in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria — for her “confusing tweet” about how the Pentagon’s alleged $21 trillion in accounting discrepancies could pay for two-thirds of Medicare for All.

    Ocasio-Cortez referenced the $21 trillion number from an article from The Nation, but the numbers and math were questionable.

    WaPo pointed out the $21 trillion estimate covers 17 years, “whereas the Urban Institute’s $32 trillion estimate for Sanders’s Medicare plan covers 10 years,” so the two numbers aren’t “apples-to-apples to begin with.” (RELATED: Ocasio-Cortez Issues An Apology To Donald Trump Jr)

    WaPo fact-checker Glenn Kessler responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet, suggesting she was awarded the Pinocchios for not admitting she was wrong.


    “FYI: The Washington Post Fact Checker generally does not award Pinocchios when a politician admits error,” Kessler tweeted. “We may still do a fact check, but we don’t try to play gotcha. We understand that everyone makes mistakes, especially at a live event. (PS: few take us up on this offer.)”

    Both PolitiFact and WaPo have guidelines for their fact-checking process.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s team did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    She tweeted out yesterday that some HUD employee was all sad because they went 3 weeks without a paycheck.

    Of course federal workers have missed zero paychecks.

    Unfortunately she has a huge following. She has impact.

    Think of the nutcases like Cortez that were elected in November.

    Think of the narrow wins by the GOP (Cruz, Scott, et al). This will not hold next time.

    It is the demographic shift, lefty/socialists have assembled a coalition of AA's, hispanics, Asians, Muslims, Jews... plus gays and a lot of young white women that are brainwashed 24/7.

    The media/press/Hollywood/academia are all controlled for a long time, and now the internet, too. No one hears both sides, Fox, Rush, a few others are being allowed for now. The internet (Breitbart et al) will be snubbed out soon, too.

    I tell the dummies that in 10 years (or so) with open borders and government controlled healthcare, they (middle class) will be paying 60% federal taxes, and to remember I told them that...

    This is just lovely!

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) announced on Twitter Tuesday evening that she will be
    serving on the House Financial Services Committee led by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).

    With a little luck they can resurrect Dodd/Frank.

    she can do a lot less damage on financial services than on ways and means so we can take a sigh of relief

    banks are fucked but at least the tax code won't get sodomized. and this committee is so large and has such senior members that she'll be lucky to get a word in. Should give her a lot of time to tweet out her Mrs Ed selfies

    even better when you see the full quote where she says the right will be exhausted watching her "run train" then the interviewer asks how this is affecting her and she said she's exhausted. good fucking lord i love this woman! this is like having an ugly communist sarah palin to play with. The equine congresswoman just took a vacation to decompress, has worked 6 days, and is already exhausted!!!!


    Ocasio-Cortez: Dude, youíre all out of bullets, youíre all out of bombs, youíre all out of all this stuff. What have you got left? Iím six days into the term, and you already used all your ammo. So enjoy being exhausted for the next two years while we run train on the progressive agenda.


    The Post: Can you describe how this has affected you personally?


    Ocasio-Cortez: Itís physically exhausting.
