'Honestly, if the Democrats had 3 more of her, Americans would run away so fast that we'd have a power monopoly until she's Lieberman's age'.

Ocasio-Cortez, who at 29 became the youngest woman to be sworn into Congress, had the flawless millennial four-word response to the criticism: "New party, who dis?"

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) criticized her colleagues back in December for failing to pay Hill staffers a "living wage".

Her new chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, told supporters during a November conference call that 'we gotta primary folks'.

"She needs to decide: Does she want to be an effective legislator or just continue being a Twitter star?" an anonymous House Democrat said.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn't get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal. "There's a difference between being an activist and a lawmaker in Congress". "She doesn't understand how the place works yet".

Lieberman went on Fox Business of all networks to tell host Neil Cavuto that he hopes she's not the future of the Democratic Party.

"If you look at the majority of new Democrats in the House, they tend to be, I say, center-left, if they are not left-left". "And that is because they had to be center-left to win some of those competitive swing districts that they took from Republicans".

In responding to the Politico article Friday morning, Ocasio-Cortez quoted a character from the comic book Watchmen to signal her intention to resist the influence of more experienced lawmakers.

"Just as congressional Republicans constantly withhold criticism of the president out of fear he'll unleash a tweet at them, some Democrats have done the same with Ocasio-Cortez", Politico reported.

Senator Joe Lieberman campaigns for vice president during a rally at California State University at Fresno in 2000.
