Democrats got absolutely pummeled this week. They lost in Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Seattle and other places.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks she knows why. According to her, Democrats are just too darned moderate.
This is 100 percent wrong, but unfortunately there are some people on the left who will believe her.

AOC Responds to Tuesday’s Election Results and Republicans Should Thank Her
With this week’s elections in the books, some of the most surprising outcomes actually happened outside of Virginia. Don’t get me wrong, Glenn Youngkin (and Winsome Sears) winning in a state that Biden took by 10 points a year ago was huge. But in places like New York, New Jersey, and the City of Seattle, other factors played into big upsets.
One such instance involved an Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez-backed socialist who was the Democrat nominee for mayor in Buffalo, NY. By the time the election was called, a write-in candidate had won that race by around 20 points.
In response, AOC took to Instagram last night (because where else?) to give her take on the election results, and Republicans should probably send her a thank you card.

She really is a special kind of stupid, isn’t she?
Manchin wing: "You socialists cost us the election by insisting on $3.5 trillion! We should have passed infrastructure first!"
AOC wing: "You moderates cost us the election by failing to deliver on our awesome promises to voters!"
Biden: "I can has ice cream?"

The Socialist that AOC endorsed in Buffalo got crushed by a write-in campaign.
The measure to abolish the police failed in Minneapolis.
The Squad’s agenda is a failure and their days are coming to an end.
It’s time to take down their leader now.@AOC, your time is up.

If Democrats keep listening to people like AOC, they will continue to lose.
