Cargo Cult Watch: Van Jones’ ‘American Dream Movement.’
Imitation is, as always, the sincerest form of flattery… but I must ask: is it really too much to require that the flatterer at least try to understand what he or she is attempting to imitate? Even if it’s just a little? Case in point. 9/11 Troofer and general Leftist Van Jones would like to start his own version of the Tea Party – and | Read More »
Olbermann spanked for making faces at Beck?
Here’s the (very entertaining) timeline: Thursday, September 3rd, 11:18 PM: Glenn Beck calls for his Twitter followers to send him information on “CASS SUNSTEIN, MARK LLOYD AND CAROL BROWNER” (all caps in the original, which is honestly a bit much).

Which is: Hey, remember this clip? Well, if you didn’t, don’t worry: I’m expecting that I’ll be using it a | Read More »
OK, now I want to know who *suggested* Van Jones for his job.
Because he or she has to go, too. Unless it is the official stance of the current administration that the previous President of the United States of America was a ‘crackhead,’ of course. In that case, I would like to see a White House spokesperson state that formally for the record. Via Hot Air Pundit, via @seanhackbarth. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
*Another* apology coming, Van Jones?
Why is it that none of this came out at Jones’ confirmation hearing… right. The administration didn’t think that its executive appointee ‘czars’ [needed] to go through that silly little confirmation process. We just needed to not worry ourselves and trust them. Which is really ironic, considering that Van Jones’ name keeps coming up associated with groups and statements that pretty explicitly don’t trust the | Read More »
