What do you do when you put risible radicalism in writing? If you’re Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), you scrub the revealing document from your website.

The result was that one of her advisors later claimed the document, a Green New Deal FAQ, was the nefarious work of Republicans. She then tacitly endorsed this notion in a tweet before her staff admitted that, yes, it was theirs — but had been put on their website by mistake.

The embarrassing supplemental document — which sometimes reads like Bart Simpson meets the Bolsheviks — went live Thursday morning. But it was killed Thursday afternoon after proposals such as guaranteeing economic security even for those “unwilling to work” and the elimination of “farting cows” and air travel brought criticism and mockery.

Dubbed the Green Leap Forward, the document promises a complete overhaul of our entire economy, with the total elimination of fossil fuels and nuclear power.
