It’s super amusing to me to watch how newly elected Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez understands pop culture and social media. Apparently, some House members are irritated with the fact that she’s a young, beautiful, smart, extremely progressive rising star in the party.
So, in response, she tweeted out a quote from Watchmen, the award-winning 12-part maxiseries by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.
To quote Alan Moore: “None of you understand. I'm not locked up in here with YOU. You're locked up in here with ME.” 🤣 https://t.co/8TCmKNJlkD

I’m impressed she knows Watchmen and with that tweet she might’ve secured the nerd vote forever. However, don’t forget, she’s quoting Rorschach, an extreme right-wing character who gets blown to smithereens by an all-powerful, naked, Smurf-man. If any Republicans understood that, they might be able to fire back, but they don’t because they are bereft of any culture except Dennis Miller, Jon Voight, Ted Nugent, and Kid Rock.
