Yet another far-left Democrat who was endorsed by taco bar revolutionary Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been walloped in the primaries.
Following Tuesday’s putrid performance by the radical chick’s picks, Saturday’s Hawaii primaries saw the week end on a sour note for the “future” of the Democratic party as 29-year-old Kaniela Ing failed to even bring in seven percent of the vote in an embarrassing setback for the faction of the party base that wants to turn America into a socialist shithole.
It was another warning sign for Democrats that regardless of how much that the media has been drooling over Ocasio-Cortez, socialism just isn’t going to sell outside of a small number of districts that are either stacked with favorable demographics or are hypnotized by her cult of personality.
Not only did Ing lose but he lost to a guy who had been out of politics for a decade.

Former Rep. Ed Case is projected to win the Democratic primary for Hawaii’s 1st District, marking a political comeback after being out of office for more than a decade.
Case won the primary with 40.2 percent of the vote, according to The Associated Press. He defeated five other Democrats in the race to replace Democratic Rep. Colleen Hanabusa, who’s vacating her seat to run in Hawaii’s gubernatorial race. The Honolulu-area seat is the only majority Asian district in the country.
Case, a white lawmaker who previously represented Hawaii’s 2nd District, has been a frequent candidate for both federal and statewide positions.
After serving in the state legislature for eight years, he unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2002. He won a special election to Congress in 2002 and served until 2007 when he retired to run unsuccessfully for Senate. Case made another failed bid for the Senate in 2010.
The former congressman was part of the Blue Dog coalition, which is made up of more moderate Democratic lawmakers. Case’s likely return to Congress would come at a time when the caucus is growing more progressive as the liberal and moderate wings of the party battle to set the direction for the Democratic Party.
What does it say when the superstar who was brought in to speak at a political rally spends so much time touting herself that she walks off stage after her speech and forgets to introduce the candidate that she had made the trip to promote?

It’s starting to look more and more like an endorsement from this airheaded bimbo is the equivalent of the kiss of death.
