Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the fierce New York Congresswoman whose mere existence drives the MAGA crowd bananas, just showed that her taste is as impeccable as her social media game. In response to a Politico piece chronicling the House Democratic Caucus’ irritation with Ocasio-Cortez, the rising political star deftly plucked a Watchmen quote from her quiver, firing it straight into hearts of nerds everywhere.
“To quote Alan Moore: ‘None of you understand. I’m not locked up in here with YOU. You’re locked up in here with ME,’” she tweeted, punctuating it with a laughing emoji.
Spoken by Watchmen’s Rorschach in the acclaimed graphic novel, the quote originated from the character while he was trapped in a prison cell with a slew of menacing bunkmates, one of whom he ends up burning with a deep fryer.
