Van bailin'

ABC News:

The White House says President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones is resigning amid controversy over past inflammatory statements.


If the mainstream media didn't prove its own irrelevance during the Rielle Hunter scandal, this clinches it. An advisor to the President of the United States, a man in charge of tens of billions in taxpayer funds, is resigning because of a scandal that has not been covered by most news outlets. Now they have to do the same dance they did when John Edwards confessed to his affair: "Looks like we have no choice but to talk about this now. Let's cover the story as if we've been covering it all along, while explaining it for the people who don't know about it because we're their only source of news."

So long to the lying, racebaiting, communist Truther in the White House. Correction: So long to a lying, racebaiting, communist Truther in the White House.

And now maybe people will start asking how this wackjob got into the White House in the first place. Van, I mean.

P.S. NBC Washington:

President Obama's environmental adviser Van Jones resigned from his post late Saturday evening after he came under fire for a series of inflammatory statements he made about Republicans, the White House said early Sunday morning.

Yeah, that's why he resigned. Because he pissed off the all-powerful Republicans. Who are in charge of, um, nothing.
