On Thursday, just as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) became the youngest member of congress, angry online weirdos attempted to shame her with an old video.

In it, we see Ocasio-Cortez dancing on a rooftop in her college days; the smear attempt backfired spectacularly. The internet rallied around the Breakfast Club-spoofing clip, further fueling the rise of Ocasio-Cortez, who, at just 29, is already something of a lefty folk hero.

Of the innumerable memes to emerge from this profoundly dumb saga, AOC Dances To Every Song might be the most fun. The Twitter account -- which re-scores Ocasio-Cortez's dance to decade-spanning hits, jams, and bops -- has already attracted more than 10,000 followers, many of whom smashed fave on the one featuring Prince's "Let's Go Crazy." 

Give it a play, and remember: Prince, the late pint-sized superstar, is absolutely from here.

Other versions are set to Smash Mouth, ABBA, Michael Jackson, and many, many more (the original artifact saw Ocasio-Cortez getting down to Phoenix's 2009 song "Lisztomania"). At press time, AOC Dances To Every Song's 45 videos have not included other artists with blogable Minnesota connections. 

As for Ocasio-Cortez, the unapologetically socialist lawmaker is still dancin'...

... and scaring the living bejesus out of conservatives.

Alright! Happy Friday. Let's dance into the weekend.
