    Lanzman's facepalm is so he can't see his own boner.
    For AOC.
    Who he wants to marry.

    Is this where you fap but you aren't sure about it?

    I ask because it describes so very, very many of your posts, and you are right to be uncertain.

    You don't like her, so no amount of evidence short of adopting policies you approve of will sway you.

    Nor will her policies. He's supported the same policies in many cases; he just won't support zhem coming from a Democratic Hispanic woman.

    Has nothing to do with her being a Democrat, her gender or her race, she’s a socialist and she spouts nonsense.

    ...and as we all know, socialism should only be for the rich.
    It's only when we try to give it to the poor that it somehow becomes all gross and icky.

    Did anyone hear AOC on the New Yorker Radio Hour earlier tonight?

    She's intelligent, well-spoken, knows her facts, and chooses her words carefully. And if any of you listened to her being interviewed without knowing it was her -- that is, without all the preconceived caricatures that the right has come up with for her -- you'd say the same thing.

    The rest are debatable, but she doesn’t choose her words carefully at all.

    Really, their guy can't spell fucking hamburger.
    Disagree with her positions all you want, but this narrative of "she's insaaaaane!!! :unuts: She's barely coherant!", just won't fly.

    I think it goes back to her use of the word socialism and that some people claim it means something other than what she is saying.

    She’s often hyperbolic (see: the world ends in 12 years vs we have 12 years to stop the world from ending in 30 years without carbon capture or geoengineering) and makes unforced errors (see: “unwilling to work”).

    She consistently said the latter, not the former.

    https://twitter.com/search?q="12 years" from:@aoc

    That's a different opinion not a different choice of words. Carbon capture won't reverse existing damage after 12 years, and 'geoengineering' is a vage coverall term for non-existent technologies.

    Ok, that does seem to be 1 error, but it stands in the face of months of continuously demonstrating precision, reason, and accuracy completely missing from practically all other political public statements in the news.

    Yet even at her most hyperbolic, her least coherent, even whilst drunk, she's still far more eloquent, accurate and coherent than Trump has ever been. In fact the uncomfortable truth is that she's one of the most capable communicators in US politics and every time someone cherry picks an instance of her making a mistake they are doing so at the expense of thousands of other such instances committed by others with much more experience every single day.

    Perhaps the US should consider either lowering the 35+ age requirement for Presidential candidates, or instituting a minimum standard of "is better educated than a yoghurt that's been left out of the fridge for two weeks"?

    Indeed, I have three kids and only the five year old can't pick the holes in most of what Trump comes out with.

    My point stands though that it's extraordinarily lacking in self awareness for people to belittle and mock a junior, inexperienced, political opponent for lack of coherence or insight when she is clearly light years ahead of the best, most experienced players on their own side.
