Least Surprising News Of The Weekend

by Patrick Appel

Van Jones resigns. Background here. There was no defending the 9/11 truther petition. An e-mail from this morning:

Love it. Obama, miserable failure. Socializing clown. Von Jones, goes home. Bye, bye Von. L O EFFING L!!! I AM SO HAPPY! Miserable failure, Barak Obama. Failed utterly incompetent president.

That's basically the tone of every Republican blog that I've read since the news broke. Gawker has a good time-line on how Van Jones became a target for GOP ire.
