Van Jones: Green Guru Gone Bad

Van Jones, a special adviser for the White House Council on Environmental Policy, may have stumbled upon a highly sustainable food source for liberals - eating one's own words.

Twice in the past week, he's made public apologies - one for using a crude term to refer to Republicans, and another for signing a petition that speculated that the Bush administration "may indeed have deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war."

Jones pointed out that the activities took place before he joined the administration, that his vulgar words were "clearly inappropriate," and as for the petition, "I do not agree with this statement and it certainly does not reflect my views now or ever." Sources with knowledge of the petition signing state that Jones did not read the petition before signing it.

Representative Mike Pence of Indiana said of Jones, "His extremist views and coarse rhetoric have no place in this administration or the public debate," in a statement calling for Jones's firing or resignation.

Let's see - Van Jones speaks without thinking and signs things without reading them or realizing their intent. Representative Pence, are you SURE Jones doesn't belong in THIS administration? It would appear to me that he fits right in.

He is the most nauseating commie psycho crackhead racist (besides obummer, of course) to defile the white house in the last 225 years!

THanks for following my blog, I've returned the favor.
Have a nice holiday weekend.
