Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new “it” candidate, and she’s virtually guaranteed a win in the liberal 14th District in New York City.  However, almost everything that comes out of her mouth is inane.  Case in point? Recently, she said that Democrats shouldn’t compromise with the “insane people” in the GOP holding the country “hostage.”  Here’s what she told Vanity Fair:

“When you’re dealing with these insane people holding the country hostage on the right, you can’t go in with your end point. You have to go in with a strong position,” she said. “If they’re trying to end Planned Parenthood, I don’t think we go in with, ‘No, let’s keep Planned Parenthood.’ I think we go in with, ‘Let’s expand women’s rights to health care and have it guaranteed in every state.’ I think we can compromise on our tactics and how we get there, but we can’t compromise where we’re going.”

She went on to say:

“We are living in a world where impeachment is a realistic possibility. We’re going to square up on Medicare for all. There are certain issues where I’m going to make some Democrats mad if they’re trying to deliver paydays for Wall Street donors. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to burn the house down over it.”

After the ridiculous Brett Kavanaugh hearings, I don’t think we need more evidence of why these next elections matter so much.

But, in case you couldn’t tell, the Left really, really hates us.  Vote accordingly.
