  • This is The New Democrat Party!

    Oh, Please! MORE OF THIS!!!

    Frustrated Democratic lawmakers are offering Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez some advice: Cool it.

    Ocasio-Cortez stunned the political world with her upset primary victory last month over Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-N.Y.), the head of the House Democratic Caucus and a rising star within the party.

    But while the improbable win made Ocasio-Cortez an overnight progressive superstar, a number of House Democrats are up in arms over her no-holds-barred approach, particularly her recent accusation that Crowley, who has endorsed her candidacy, is seeking to topple her bid with a third-party run.

    Some legislators are voicing concerns that Ocasio-Cortez appears set on using her newfound star power to attack Democrats from the left flank, threatening to divide the party — and undermine its chances at retaking the House — in a midterm election year when leaders are scrambling to form a united front against President Trump and Republicans.

    The members are not mincing words, warning that Ocasio-Cortez is making enemies of soon-to-be colleagues even before she arrives on Capitol Hill, as she’s expected to do after November’s midterms.

    “She’s carrying on and she ain’t gonna make friends that way,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.). “Joe conceded, wished her well, said he would support her … so she doesn’t know what the hell she’s talking about.”

    The Dems created this, now they will have to live with it. Yinz moved hard to the left, well, what did yinz expect was going to happen?

    Just kidding. All that’s “live” here right now is thunderstorms.

    How about a recent Ally Venable Band show, instead? This was recorded on 5/28/18 at the High Octane Saloon in Homosassa, FL:

    Longtime Blogmoc poster “Macker” passed away this morning. I really can’t think of much else to say at this point, although I am relieved he is no longer suffering from cancer I will miss him…

    Here’s a thread to remember an old friend…
