Former Senator and one-time Vice Presidential candidate Joe Lieberman has joined the list of once-relevant politicians who feel the need to take time out their day to tell the world they just don't get Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

According to the NYDN, a "Democratic campaign veteran scoffed that "it's not a great look" for Ocasio-Cortez that her campaign received a fine for not carrying workers' compensation coverage".

Some House Democrats have been unhappy with progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's resistance to falling in line with her fellow party members, particularly her threats to support primary challenges against incumbents, Politico reported Friday.

'The so-called champion of workers, when given her own responsibility, is not following the law...'

We can't wait to see how conservatives twist this into another criticism of the new congresswoman.

That's because some of the bonus clauses they are entitled to following Coutinho's departure would be rendered obsolete. If he came back, I've always said that years ago and he's now one of the best players in the world.

It wasn't long before fans of Ocasio-Cortez began to bemoan what, from the outside, appears to be a generational divide between establishment Democrats and the class of newly-elected, younger, more diverse Congresspeople who rose to prominence during the most recent mid-terms.

"With all respect, I certainly hope she's not the future and I don't believe she is", he said.

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" said an anonymous House Democrat in the Politico report, who said he agrees with her radical ideology.

Yes, but she was on "60 Minutes" and got to call Donald Trump a racist on national television. Older and wiser Democrats don't care how many Twitter followers she has or how much ink she's getting. I think she has matured.

"I can not tell you the amount of dysfunction that this president is advancing", she said on MSNCB following the address, as reported by The Daily Wire. Never one to shy away from conversations about her politics, Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet of the Politico report with a choice tweet of her own...a Watchmen quote.
