Twitter has revolutionized political conversation in a way that not everyone thinks is a good thing.
Write this down, I'm referring to a Fox News story.
Claire McCaskill and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have been in a tweet war.
McCaskill, is an outgoing member of congress from Missouri who has referred to Ocasio-Cortez as a "Shiny Object" and a "Thing". She calls the incoming congresswoman's talk, cheap rhetoric. That cheap rhetoric includes criticism of the Missourian of "pretty much going along with all of Trump's immigration policies" and losing while almost all progressive agendas in Missouri passed.
Is the new congresswoman just a shiny new thing? Real progressives hope not. More moderate Democrats think that espousing a truly progressive agenda is a path to failure for the party. The rabid left think that the party is dead without a shift back to the left. Moderate Democrats have expressed the hope that by being moderates they will be able to meet more moderate Republicans in the middle. The "pure" progressives think that the Democratic moderates are already in conservative territory. The new congress, thanks to Democratic wins in the mid-term elections, will look much more like the country with more women, Muslims, Native Americans and other out-of-power groups.
The progressives have a lot of work to do. McCaskill has said that GOP members of Congress are sick of Trump. Ocasio-Cortez asks why they haven't done anything about him if they're so sick.
