Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Dunks by Quoting Alan Moore and Watchmen

2019 is shaping up to be an interesting year for politics and one of the stars already is newly elected Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has taken social media by storm.

The new member regularly uses social media to pull back the curtain of the political process but also has no problem using it to slapback haters.

Case in point, an article released today by Politico talking about how “exasperated” Democrats are trying to rein her in.

She wasn’t having it and responded back on Twitter with a quote from Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

The quote comes from Rorschach who is in jail at this point in the comic and he looks at it as a positive being closer to the criminals he wants to punish…
