The Van Down by the River

Van Jones steps aside:

"On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me," Jones, special adviser for green jobs at the White House Council on Environmental Quality, said in a statement announcing his resignation just after midnight Saturday. "They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide."

Jones is a lawyer. As such, he ought to know that the truth is an absolute defense. And quoting someone accurately isn't a lie. Don't worry about him, though -- I'm sure MSNBC is hiring.

It's just so darn mean to confront someone with his own words and actions. My heart weeps for Van Jones.

(Thump, thump, thump) - another one under the bus! Another one under the bus! And another one gone, and another one gone, another one under the bus! Hey, he's going to get you, too. Another one under the bus!

...Are you happy, are you satisfied? How long can you stand the heat Out of your own past the bullets rip to the sound of the beat!

I think any Obama appointee has got to feel a little nervous whenever a three-day holiday weekend approaches...
