Response to Vidal (Original post)

40. She represents her district

 

and speaks for a particular and specific cross-section of Democrats who self-select by giving her views credence. In this respect she is precisely like every other person in the House.

Does anybody speak for all of America? Of course not. Some few have convinced themselves that they do so, and I believe AOC may be counted among that number. The reality is that she doesnít even speak for all the people who share her political leanings; I agree with many of her views but I think sheís simultaneously bombastic and inarticulate and damages the movement as much as she energizes it.

Thatís all just one doofus talking, of course, and I donít speak for all of America either.
