What do Medea Benjamin, Jodi Evans (founders of Code Pink), Rosie O’Donnell. Janeane Garofalo, Cynthia McKinney and Van Jones have in common? They an all beef patty short of a quarter pounder, certifiable nut jobs and Nine-Eleven Truthers. The last, Jones, also works in and for the Obama White House, as the one’s green jobs czar. Amanda Carpender, Washington Times , drops the hammer on Jones:
President Obama’s “green jobs czar” Van Jones has been targeted again and again by conservatives for his controversial views and now they’ll have another item to use as fodder.
Mr. Jones signed a statement for 911Truth.org in 2004 demanding an investigation into what the Bush Administration may have done that “deliberately allowed 9/11 to happen, perhaps as a pretext for war.”
His name is listed with 99 other prominent signatories supporting such an investigation on the 911Truth.org website, including Code Pink co-founders Medea Benjamin and Jodi Evans, comedienne Janeane Garofalo, Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia and others
It is not all bad for the one. The administration’s rehab efforts on working, an Allan Pundit, from Hot Air :
Note well: He doesn’t deny that he signed it. He denies that he agrees with it . Which means, I guess, that he’s asking us to create a new standard for public officials by which documents that bear their signature should no longer be used against them.
Imagine the contempt you’d need to have for the intelligence of your audience to try a non-defense like this:
The Gateway Pundit  has more to slap down Jones’ denial.
Meanwhile, back inside the Beltway, Joe Klien, Time , has his head buried so far up that he can not see, much less report:
I was at a Blanche Lincoln town hall meeting in Russellville, Arkansas, yesterday–and the number of people who believe that the President has larded the government with communists (!) was astonishing. One woman said there were four known communists in the government and that she’d researched it on the internet. When I asked her afterwards, she said environmental adviser Van Jones, legal advisor Cass Sunstein (who was last spotted being excoriated by the left for supporting the FISA revisions), someone named Lloyd and she didn’t remember the fourth.
Klien’s, anonomous source has identified, one confirmed communist in the one’s administration, Jones, and a possible in Sunstien. Yet while Klien ignores Jones, he is dismisses the notion that the spirtual step-child of Saul Allinskey and William Ayers is putting communists into the government. Who side is Klien on?
Meanwhile we have a a real life “death panel .” Note that Mara Liason tries awfully hard to equate the Birthers with the Truthers and utterly fails.
