Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reminds Me of a Billy Joel Song. [VIDEO]

I’m sorry/not sorry, but I love Billy Joel’s music, especially his early stuff. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Party’s new darling, reminds me of one of those songs.

It’s “Just the Way You Are,” from Joel’s 1977 album, The Stranger. Which, yes, I own. On old vinyl, too.

“I could not love you any better
I love you just the way you are”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should stay just the way she is now, because she’s been comedy gold.

First of all, there was That Guy who showed up at Ocasio-Cortez’s victory party whom she had to disavow — because he was a raging anti-Semite. Those back-pedaling moves are always a hoot!

The fun continued the day after Alexandria’s primary victory when she appeared on CNN, claiming that ICE was running ‘black sites’ at the border.

And it was so much fun to watch her step on a rake when she showed that she knew nothing about Israel, except to squawk about “Palestinian occupation.” 

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s grasp of economics is knee-slapping, like when she said that our low unemployment rate is really a bad thing. Why? Well, it’s because “everyone has two jobs.” And this from a Boston U graduate who majored in economics.

However, her claim that all these people have “two or more jobs” is baloney:

But when she’s not parroting anti-Israel talking points or spreading BS about the economy, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can also be found doing stunts like this — screaming at ICE agents at the US-Mexico border. Because she can’t sleep at night!

And speaking of ICE, Ocasio-Cortez has another Cunning Plan.

It’s no longer enough for Alexandria to merely shriek at border guards. Now she wants to occupy ICE offices, and. . . get this. . . every airport, too.

From an interview with the progressive Democracy Now!

“We need to occupy every airport. . . We need to occupy every ICE office until those kids are back with their parents, period.”

Yeah, that’ll really go over well. Let’s get the band back together from the old Occupy Wall Street days and scream at families just trying to get through security so they can fly to Florida for Disney World and to see grandma. That will really get people inspired to support Democrats in November.

Maybe someone should tell her that even the old Occupy Wall Street crew are holding a conference next month in New York. Its subject? Why Do Protests Fail? Alexandria, call your office!

Now there’s really no doubt that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will make it to Congress in November, since her NY house district is solidly blue. So she has yet another Cunning Plan.

She wants to carve out a “sub caucus” from the already existing “Progressive Caucus.” From a Dig podcast:

“Even if you can carve out a subportion, a subcaucus, of the Progressive Caucus, even a smaller bloc but one that operates as a bloc, you can generate real power.” 

Except that not too many Democrats are willing to sign on. Especially with that “abolish ICE” schtick. Says KY Rep. John Yarmuth, a member of the Progressive Caucus:

“There are, what, two House members that are for abolishing ICE?”

Yes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving, isn’t she?

But don’t you dare criticize her, because she’s visionary, or something:

Alexandria, you just do your thing, and keep being you:

“I don’t want clever conversation. . .
I want you just the way you are.”

Keep up your New York State of Mind. It’ll be so much fun to watch.

    Progressives……ever progressing to becoming the ultimate intersectional socialist loon!

  • deimos says:

    She’s been called the new voice of the democrat party, God, I hope so.

  • Skid Marx says:

    The comrades who want to be re-elected in red states have already pulled the plug on Cortez. They outrank her in the CPUSA aka the democrats.
    The Israel comments prove she isn’t ready for primetime. Also people are fat and happy in America, we aren’t living under a monarchy and this isn’t 1917.
    She was probably a plant to make someone look more moderate.
    That won’t work Cruella Pantsuit Princess aka Hillary.

  • Wfjag says:

    She reminds me more of the Billy Joel song You May Be Right:
    You may be right
    I may be crazy.
    But it just may be a lunatic you’re looking for.

  • JoJo the Idiot Circus Boy says:

    Cortez is hotter than the Fourth of July Friday fish fry fireworks fest. Do want! I’ve almost got the sadz that the republican wing of the Üniparty has no hot new low mileage model to trot out for the summertime.

  • Ward B. says:

    Ok, the Baldrick reference was pure gold.
    I’m still smiling at that one.

    Socialist Ocasio-Cortez
    Well, this doesn’t say much for their Economics program, now does it? I mean, she *passed* and is a socialist.

    Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.
    Right. Because Marx invented the term. There *HAVE* always been free markets*, however. They are not the same thing. (Marx’ “capitalism” was a slice of “free market” at a time of transition to industrialism, in a place that had always had a near caste system; it does NOT define America, nor most other free-market economies in history.)
    (* Free for certain values of that term. There are always people trying to control the markets for their own benefit, and some of them have power to really affect things.)

    she wants to occupy . . . every airport
    Alrighty. Does this mean the TSA goons will be too busy with her minions to scan and pat me and go through my things without a warrant or probable cause? That might work out all right, after all…….

    Why Do Protests Fail?

    you can generate real power
    Because this is what it’s all about. No matter what she screams about loving kids, it’s all a shell game to take all your money and all the power, so they can RULE you. She’s no different than Lenin, or Stalin, or Hitler or Mao or Pol Pot or Napoleon or ……………

    People who seek substantive change are almost always told some version of:
    Sometimes, it’s because you *ARE* crazy/ignorant/inexperienced/stupid/indoctrinated. Just because people are telling you no, doesn’t make them the bad guys. Sometimes you *NEED* to be stopped.

    I’m thinking of another Joel song…..
    Well, it’s no big sin to stick your two cents in
    If you know when to leave it alone
    But you went over the line
    You couldn’t see it was time to go home
    No, no, no, no, no, no, you had to be a big shot, didn’t you
    You had to open up your mouth………
