There is a dog fight in the works over at the Democrat Plantation, between four upstarts and the old-guard. One wants to salvage a party, and the other is positioned to either take charge or be drawn and quartered for mutiny among the ranks of Plebes and veteran politicos shuffling dutifully left at the behest of the “90 day wonder” Alexandra Cortez.
When the tissues of the body go astray and grow beyond their intended dimensions, it’s cancer. Cancer is the body becoming its own enemy. In a similar way such a malignancy is fowling the body politic of the democratic party as party leader Pelosi is trying to hobble the newbies before they endanger the standing of the party as 2020 elections appear on the horizon.
But…….It doesn’t matter. Pelosi is on the wrong battleground, and AOC just wants her to sit down and stay out of her way. Cortez is not fighting to benefit the Democratic party she as found it. She is the ice man and she brings the chill of changing times. AOC needed the political machine of the Democratic party to position herself for delivery of HER agenda. Dreams of Pelosis absence and the power vacuum that absence would cause dance in AOCs mind. The socialist/communist system Cortez promotes cannot happen without the destruction of the fundamental framework of American capitalism. And as cynical as it sounds, it is true that Americas engine runs on capitalism. It runs on capitalism or not at all.
