Itís ridiculous that itís unconstitutional for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run for president
Vox ^ | December 12, 2018 | Matthew Yglesias

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest star in the Democratic Party, and she has been ever since she unseated Rep. Joe Crowley in a surprise primary upset in May. That her win didn’t, in the final analysis, launch a wave of leftist primary victories only goes to show what a phenomenon she personally is.

Not everyone shares her brand of politics, of course, but her constituency has exploded beyond the initial set of ideologues who powered the challenge to Crowley because of her incredible wit, charisma, social media savvy, and basic political smarts.

In a year when moderate incumbents generally didn’t lose primary challenges from the left and in which Our Revolution endorsees failed to flip a single GOP-held House seat, AOC constantly dominates the conversation — living rent-free in the heads of conservatives, racking up magazine profiles and Twitter followers, engaging supporters on Instagram in a heretofore unprecedented way, and pulling back the curtain on some of the seamier aspects of “business as usual” in the US Congress.

ridiculous that it’s unconstitutional for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run for president...

I fail to see any problem. Shirley, once inaugurated, AOC could sign legislation making her future run constitutional.

... and, too bad, I'm calling you shirley.

It’s ridiculous that Alexandria Ocasional-Cortex hasn’t done ANYTHING to warrant talking about running for president.
Millennials, there’s nothing they THINK they can’t achieve yet won’t work for it.
It must be awarded to them.

She’s 29...she is ineligible, period.

When she turns 35 she is welcome to throw her hat in the ring.

Much more ridiculous, it is, that such a demonstrably dumb bimbo is even considered for any job whatsoever.

No discrimination on low IQ, however.
