    I was sure it was real!
    Given the likelihood that that would be her answer, it was necessary to clarify for those easily confused.
    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    She deleted the tweet so there's no reason to attack her over it. People are only attacking her now is because she's a woman of color!

    I guess they didn't get the Trump memo about Kim Jung Un now being a great guy.

    Dummies. Of course Antifa is in there. Fresno is pretty conservative.

    Also Castro is dead.

    I canít believe someone thought that was a good idea.

    Wow she's dumb.

    And yet. I find her very appealing, if you ignore every dumb thing she says. And if her voters are not knowledgeable about the nonsense she utters, they will disregard any ignorant comment she makes, because she is likeable. I predict a very successful future for her in politics.

    The people that are in the know probably find her lack of knowledge utterly aggravating, like people who struggled with Reagan during his Alzheimer's years, Trump now, and Bush 43. Three presidents who said so many misinformed utterances, but they were affable and charismatic, so they were successful. AOC for president 2039!

    I agree on the appeal. Thereís something appealing about someone who is so convinced in their position. I also like that she doesnít care what people think of her. She really is free to speak her mind, which is part of the problem but also appealing.

    Sheís a great follow on Twitter. Almost as good as Trump himself.

    Yup - she is appealing to one set of people in the exact same way that Trump is appealing to another set of people. And for the same reasons. They take those two seriously - and see them as wanting to address the issues that are important to each group.

    While it doesn't appear to be a separate crime, an act of domestic terrorism is grounds for a sentencing enhancement. I think both parties lack of understanding in that regard led to the back-and-forth.

    AOC is fascinating to me.

    The GOP is giving her way more power than she deserves, though. The red herring about the term "concentration camps" is a great example. Lightweights like Liz Cheney and Steve King go after her on Twitter, and they get schooled.

    We need a green new deal now! I can't wait until AOC finally finishes her plan so we can learn all the amazing ideas she has. If the "draft" that was "mistakenly" posted to her website a few months back is any indication, prepare to be wowed!

    Your comment, while in jest (I think), is pretty much a microcosm of why Trump is our president. As exasperated as they are that it happened, the Dems need to look no further than a mirror to see exactly how Trump got elected.

    Well stated, but please don’t drive Frank from this site. We need our crazy leftist nut job just like we need Uncle Ted, my all time favorite right wing nut.
