I am shocked – shocked – to find a radical in the Obama White House!

So there’s an avowed Communist; a 9/11 Truther; an “activist” whose worldview is almost entirely instructed by race in the White House.

And we’re surprised?

Van Jones – the “Green Czar,” President Obama’s “Special Adviser for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.” is – we know, because he told us – a Communist and a 9/11 Truther. He believes that global warming caused Hurricane Katrina and that Bush didn’t care. And that’s probably not all.

And…what? He’s the only one? Is that what we think?

Well, yeah. To judge by the Righty-sphere uproar – an uproar in which I have, gleefully, taken part. We’re all shocked. Shocked. To find out that a radical liberal is serving in the White House.

People, people, people.

Let’s say, just hypothetically, that we could give a survey to every political appointee currently working for Obama. A completely anonymous survey. And let’s say every appointee is going to answer every question with complete honesty.

I know: it’s a stretch. Bear with me.

What percentage, do you think, would fall into the Communist, socialist, Marxist, wealth-redistribution, capitalism-is-evil categories?

What percentage, do you think, would believe that convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal was framed by The Man and should be set free?

What percentage, do you think, believes that global warming (or global climate change) is destroying the planet, and/or had something to do with Katrina?

What percentage, do you think, believes that George W. Bush “hates black people?”

What percentage, do you think, believes that Bush had something to do with the 9/11 attacks? Or that Cheney did? Or, at least, that they knew something but did nothing?

What percentage, do you think, would agree with the statement that “Republicans are assholes?”

I’m speculating, of course, but I’ll bet those would be some pretty high percentages. Significantly higher than the population at large.

We want to know how somebody like him – someone as radical as Van Jones – could get a job with the White House? How could he get through the vetting process? Why didn’t that extreme belief system of his get him rejected?

Please. His extreme belief system was probably his biggest asset!
