It's not often that our mailbox swells so quickly. Usually, it's when some professional athlete or Hollywood starlet reveal they are Jewish.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is definitely not an athlete and is far from being a starlet. She is a newly-elected congresswoman from New York, whose shock defeat of the entrenched incumbent in the primary sent shockwaves through the Democratic Party. Ocasio-Cortez is not only a socialist and the youngest congresswoman ever, she is considered by many the future of the liberal movement in America.
That's all fun and well (perhaps not for the conservatives, who set up Ocasio-Cortez as an avatar of all unholy), but why the swelling of the mailbox? At a recent Hanukkah celebration, Ocasio-Cortez revealed that "a very, very long time ago, generations and generations ago, my family consisted of Sephardic Jews." She discovered the fact from "doing a lot of family trees in the last couple of years."
Look at that, ancestral research finally paying off! And if anyone has an issue with the verdict below, you know where to find our mailbox...
