Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is lipstick on a pig.

Ocasio-Cortez – Occasional Cortex, as she’s known, because she’s so thick she doesn’t even know how stupid she is – is the lipstick, obviously.

And the pig is the Green New Deal itself which isn’t remotely new, or particularly green, and which is far too expensive and damaging to merit the flattering term ‘deal’.

But since with the telegenic dancing congresswoman promoting it it’s not going to go away, perhaps we’d do well to examine it in more detail.

What’s not to like?

Here is a taster (Milloy’s comments in bold):
