Van Jones Not A Truther, He Just Played One In Real Life

The "I'm not a doctor, I just play one on TV" analogy moved into the political sphere long ago, most recently when a faux doctor appeared at a town hall run by Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

Now we have something of a reverse analogy, someone who actually was a 9/11 Truther but who claims he was not. Van Jones, famous Glenn Beck foe and Green Jobs Czar, signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether the Bush administration knew of the 9/11 attacks in advance and whether the 911 Commission engaged in a cover-up.

Now Jones denies reading or understanding what he signed. But more evidence has been found that Jones was involved with the Truther movement as early as 2002.

Jones will end up resigning, and when he does, this will be his explanation:
"I am not a 9/11 Truther, I just played one in real life."

  1. Btw, let's say for the sake of argument he signed it without understanding.

    Um, then doesn't that make him too stupid to be in his job?

  2. He is suggesting that the masses should not hold White House officials accountable for anything they sign. That's quite a bar.

    I find it quite interesting that an explanation has been provided for Jones' Truther status, however, should not the White House been showing him the door at the "I'm a Communist" declaration?

  3. Turns out he's a cop killer Mumia supporter as well! This guy just gets better and better!

  4. High profile will buy you the farm every time. Ask Heidi Fleiss about high profile. The L.A. cops said they would have left her alone is she would have been low key about her prostitution business. A lot of people think Glen is a nut job? This White House is a joke. Who has the egg on the face now? I guess the nut is in the other shell now. Great blog.
