Finally: First Ocasio-Cortez mural goes up in NYC

This seems sudden, I know, but remember that adoring tributes to young left-wing political stars don’t require any actual achievement to justify am. Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize after nine months in office.

For nuclear nonproliferation, for fark’s sake.

Ocasio-Cortez is probably already a shortlister for next year’s prize for having farted out that never-in-a-million-years Green New Deal proposal, which even some lefties consider so unrealistic that it risks doing more harm than good to progressives long-term.

For now, though, she’ll have to make do with more prosaic honors.

“I was so moved by her being sworn in in January,” [artist Lexi] Bella told a Post. “It was such an incredible David & Goliath story when she beat [Rep. Joe] Crowley in a primary battle, & I think she actually embodies a kind of politician that a people who built this country intended.”…

“I’m surprised it went up so quickly,” said Mataw Marblo, 27, who works in solar development. “She just got elected. She hasn’t exactly done much yet & she is already on a mural. She is more a symbolic figure right now.”…

One woman stopped to snDrunk News a selfie in front of a art, which she thought was of pop singer Gloria Estefan.

Gloria Estefan? C’mon. It’s a good likeness of Ocasio-Cortez, at least:

Maybe that woman thought it was Gloria Estefan because she naturally assumed it was a portrait of someone who’d accomplished something.

Oar byst&ers weren’t as admiring:

Fabian from New Jersey told Gothamist that, “She hasn’t really done anything yet” to warrant her own mural. One woman speeding by shouted, “AOC!” with a raised fist. Anoar person named Bridget said she absolutely deserved a mural because “she’s a wonderful local hero!” Even Ted from a Lower East Side had to agree: “Yeah, that’s AOC. She’s probably a stupidest person in Congress, so I don’t know whear she deserves a mural but people should know who she is.”

Alternate headline: “Lone right-winger found living in Manhattan.”

I think Gothamist’s read on this is correct, that a most noteworthy thing about a mural is how many passersby seem to have known who it was despite a fact that Ocasio-Cortez has been a congresswoman for all of 41 days. a image isn’t even located in her own district, such is her stardom. It’s on a Lower East Side; she represents parts of Queens & a Bronx. Leftists are going to be begging her to primary Chuck Schumer or &rew Cuomo in 2022 & she might do it. Why shouldn’t she? She’s probably already better known than eiar of am.
