In her two years in the public spotlight, New York’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has demonstrated a firm determination not to listen to reason when it comes from the right. But the Democrat’s reaction Thursday to words uttered by a veteran member of her own party while votes were still being counted showed she won’t listen to the left either. And it showed that Tuesday’s disappointing showing for down-ballot Democrats doesn’t look likely to deter the party’s ever more radical drift to the left. In a Twitter post, Ocasio-Cortez got snarky with former Sen. Claire McCaskill, the Missouri Democrat who lost her seat in the Show-Me State in 2018, the year AOC won hers in the House.
