AOC can put on her fake accent and talk all she wants about ‘this is what building power looks like’… Pelosi took her to school.
Occasional-Cortex doesn’t seem to grasp the difference between activism — with public pressure — and legislating.
Then again, what do we really expect from a raw rookie who talked about being ‘inaugurated’ into office and signing bills into law, and who talked about “taking back all three chambers of government”?
Whether AOC is able to pick up on a rebuke this subtle or not is anybody’s guess, but Pelosi was set her straight on how Washington REALLY works.
Asked about the difficulties of governing a caucus in the House that is being challenged at every turn by AOC and others like her — liberals elected in the past few cycles who are deeply skeptical of the party establishment — Pelosi said this: “While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House.”
Now, Pelosi didn’t mention AOC by name. But you’d have to be a real dummy to not understand who she was talking about. Ocasio-Cortez has 3.9 million Twitter followers, by far the most of any House member — including Pelosi (2.4 million followers). And AOC is an active Twitter user — often employing the social media site to call out what she believes to be unfairness within the Democratic Party or to push back on media stories about her.
It’s not the first time that Pelosi has had to snap the new media darling back in line.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi built out the Democratic roster for her special select panel on climate change Thursday, pulling from a mix of old and new lawmakers but leaving off the highest profile freshmen like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). — Politico
Probably because she’s getting upstaged by someone with about as many months in office as Pelosi has decades.

Is the poor little ‘Master Legislator’ having trouble reigning in her Raucous Caucus?
Sorry, Nancy, but it was entirely predictable.
When you flood your party with Alinskyite activists, that’s bound to happen.
The big question that should keep her up at night, ‘master legislator’ or not, is whether her party will ‘Robespierre’ her. The revolution devours its own.
It’s only a matter of time.
You can see it in her eyes, she’s got big plans for America. Big, psychotic plans.
Plans for putting a stake through the heart of industry, in the name of Democratic Socialism. Plans for dismantling ICE and letting illegals stream over our borders. Plans for outlawing cars, and our burgers. Because otherwise, the world will end in 12 years. And you’d better do it, or else, because she’ll tell ya “I’m The Boss!”
She’s not exactly ‘shelf stable’, but she IS an elected representative. She’s Alexandria Occasio-Cortez: The American Psycho!
