Democratic socialist Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a seemingly limitless source of unintentional comedic fodder. And we’re wrong for pointing and laughing at her. At least according to Nate Silver:

Demonizing? Is that what we’re doing?

No, it’s the fact that she’s kind of a moron.

See, from where we’re sitting, we’re merely enjoying the show. What Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez lacks in intellectual, economic, and policy firepower, she more than makes up for in entertainment value.

We’ll grant Silver that any conservatives picking on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s wardrobe aren’t doing themselves many favors. But we’d be truly doing it wrong if we didn’t shine an even brighter spotlight on all the stupid and ridiculous things she says.

That’s also a good point. Donald Trump sticks his foot in his mouth on a regular basis. Misspells simple words, contradicts himself, demonstrates ignorance with regard to basic policy. If he’s fair game as President of the United States, surely Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t immune from mockery. They’re actually not that different from one another.

Gillibrand and Klobuchar aren’t exactly packing much intellectual heat, either, but they’re geniuses compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Definitely make Ocasio-Cortez your standard-bearer, Dems. We won’t stand in your way.

Oh, and by the way:

Good luck with all that, libs.
