    Dems: How to Control Socialist Ocasio-Cortez

    New Dem star to rattle DC establishment




    Democrats are racing to figure out how to handle Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose primary win over a longtime incumbent is set to shake up the party’s Washington establishment.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s shock victory over Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.) made the 28-year-old an overnight sensation in the Big Apple and across the country, leading Democrats to bombard her with messages of congratulations and offers to cooperate in the future.

    “The entire spectrum of House Democrats, party leadership, [campaign] leadership, is trying to assess what she wants to do and how ready she is to play ball,” said one Democratic source.

    They want to know “how does her coming to Washington change my plan, or even help my plan?”

    Democrats are largely thrilled to welcome the telegenic rising star to their ranks, though she is already ruffling some feathers.

    Ocasio-Cortez plans to hit the campaign trail for at least three other Democratic candidates in primary races this year who are backed by Justice Democrats, a PAC that supports progressives.......


    A source close to Ocasio-Cortez said the candidate is not interested in following the conventional Democratic playbook.

    What’s the point, the source said, or “we’re gonna get the same results we have had for the last decade.”

    Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) said Democrats should take a lesson from Crowley, who accepted his defeat by serenading Ocasio-Cortez with a version of “Born to Run.”

    “If we’re smart we’ll welcome her with open arms,” said Welch.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    Not to mention an outstanding resume that includes student and bartender and well, student and bartender. But heck I’m sure she served a lot of drinks to some pretty smart people.

    Oh that's easy!

    Offer her some free stuff!

    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.
