Sums are not set as a test on Erasmus (no Twilight Zone title available)

Keep believing this Krug:

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s upset primary victory has produced a huge amount of punditry about the supposed radicalization of the Democratic party, how it’s going to hurt the party because her positions won’t sell in the Midwest (and how well would Steve King’s positions sell in the Bronx?), etc., etc.. But I haven’t seen much about the substance of the policies she advocates, which on economics are mainly Medicare for All and a federal job guarantee.

So here’s what you should know: the policy ideas are definitely bold, and you can make some substantive arguments against them. But they aren’t crazy. By contrast, the ideas of Tea Party Republicans are crazy; in fact, Ocasio-Cortez’s policy positions are a lot more sensible than those of the Republican mainstream

Able was I ere I saw Elba. We’re too lazy to look up a fitting Twilight Zone title for this, but Serling’s intro is appropriate. Final point: anyone who thinks that getting the votes of 2% of a congressional district’s population is a mandate is living in a twilight zone of their own.

Extra final point: the education establishment has done its job well, since only 23% of a target group really like this country that they live in. Crazy.
