Sandy Cortez isn’t really a Congresswoman, she just plays one on TV

Sandy Cortez isn’t really a Congresswoman, she just plays one on TV

Sandy Cortez received quite a bit of blowback for hobnobbing with the very rich and famous at the Met Gala this week. Most of the mockery and derision was prompted by her decision to wear a designer gown with “Tax the Rich” emblazoned on her ass.

And boy was she dragged. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, so-called voice of the working class, goes to the “It” event of the year wearing an expensive gown and pricey jewelry while rubbing elbows with celebrities. Then she has the audacity to parade around with a “Tax the Rich” ass as if she actually means it.

But the joke’s on you if you think she wasn’t aware of the irony.

See, the thing you have to remember is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is just the character Sandy Cortez plays.

Never confuse the actress with the character she plays.

Emelia Clarke doesn’t actually own a dragon, you know. She isn’t really Daenerys Targaryen.

Sandy Cortez is no more a member of the House than Emelia Clarke is a member of House Targaryen.

It wasn’t Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who attended the Met Gala in a “Tax the Rich” gown. It was Sandy Cortez, the once-aspiring actress who auditioned for the role of a lifetime – that of the young, socialist upstart Congresswoman from the Bronx.

And the dream of every aspiring actress came true for Sandy. Not only was she cast in the role, but it turned her into an overnight sensation. Tens of thousands of devoted fans, hundreds of television interviews, oodles of magazine cover shoots, and her own line of merchandising.

Sure, her acting style is a bit over-the-top. She’s more emotive than a silent picture actress. But for many, that hyper-dramatic style was part of Sandy’s charm. It helped push her to superstardom.

So when she decided to go out on the town to rub elbows with her fellow celebrities, Sandy decided to have a little fun, so she emblazoned one of her character’s catch-phrases to her ass.

It’s no different than Gary Coleman turning up at the Met Gala with “What’chu talkin’ ‘bout, Willis?” emblazoned on the back of his tuxedo.

Sandy knows what made her famous. And having it stamped on the back of her borrowed gown was nothing more than an inside joke – having some fun with the character she plays.

There’s a reason the Center for Effective Lawmaking rated Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as one of the least effective members of the Congress in her first season term on the air in office. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t a real Congresswoman; she’s just a character Sandy Cortez plays on TV.

And just as actors don’t really die in death scenes or engage in sex in sex scenes — or fly fire-breathing dragons for that matter — Sandy doesn’t really legislate. It’s all just part of the Hollywood magic.

It isn’t hypocritical for Sandy Cortez to turn up at the Met Gala. That’s what celebrities do. It’s the place to be seen, photographed, interviewed, and, yes, create controversy.

Because controversy is a terrific way for a young actress to boost her name recognition.

And it worked, didn’t it? Sandy Cortez got exactly what she wanted from her trip to the Met Gala.

She trolled you.

Now, delighted in the knowledge that all the dopes who actually believe she really is a Congresswoman fell for it, Sandy Cortez can spend the rest of the week watching all that free publicity come pouring in.

    Just think that out of a district of 2 million voters this tramp won with a total of 18,000 votes. She immediately became a media star and they have been her cheerleader as a disciple of Crazy Bernie.I’m completely convinced the country is lost. Yesterday proved the democrats hold an iron grip on California as Newsom breezed through his recall election. Living in Illinois I know what it’s like to be subjected to liberal tyranny of all of my 71 years.

    Her democrat, oops I meant ass, should have displayed “eat the rich” (h/t to Aerosmith). Unless the rich person displays a D after their name. Everyone knows their profligate spending and appalling tax proposals will gouge all socioeconomic groups, with low income individuals being hardest hit. As an actress, AOC would be hard pressed to hold down a minor extra part on an obscure daytime soap. She breathes new life into the phrase “never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups, or in this case, voters in her district.

    Where but in Government could that mental-zero earn more than $14 an hour? She has a degree in ‘economics’ I have heard. She probably couldn’t make it into the Latino-Women Studies program. But, she sends a great message to all the kids out there: Never let stupidity stand in your way!

      That was at CFP, and I repeated it at LI.

    Be outraged or laugh at her, she is young, attractive and ambitious. She will be able to accomplish more than Hillary Clinton could even dream about. I wish it weren’t the case, but that is how the world works.

      If she gets elected another time or two, she has a long future in the Congress. Likely Chucky’s replacement.

    I still say she’s the spawn of Charles Manson. They have the same bulging eyes.

    Where’s Ron Jeremy when you need him?
