Youthful exuberance

O to be young and up on the roof once more:

Those of you programmed to despise her, get in line behind this guy.

    I can’t help but think that this non-story is helping her rather than hindering. Being young once hasn’t hurt this guy.

    I think you’re probably right.

    A right-leaning fellow I follow on Twitter:

    Argh the AOC video only makes her that much more likeable but the dumb righties are sharing it out of a dumb belief to the contrary

    And the annoying lefties pointing this out are all correct

    I could have sworn she’d finally gotten well into Minute 16.

    McGehee – she took office YESTERDAY. She was targeted, in part, because she had won the primary in late June, and it’s a safe Democratic district. , so he had token opposition, if any, in November.

    Wow, she has aged badly. Only in her late 20s and already horse-faced. Also. barrio-girl’s friends look mighty white.

    Annoying lefty here. Exactly HOW is it supposed to be damaging, to see an adorable young woman dancing, again? Did I miss a wardrobe malfunction or something?

    Although I hold many of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s policy suggestions to be ill-advised if not downright wrong, I’m with Holly on not finding this to be that much of a problem. The fact that video of her goofing around with friends is actually safe for work distinguishes her from a number of her legislative colleagues and predecessors.

    That’s not what I meant Roger. Republicans get enough fodder to make fun of her when she says or does something in the present. Digging up a years-old video is uncalled-for.

    The Channel Formerly Known As She Politico has now issued a video of the AOC gams.
