Waited until midnight on a holiday weekend while the country slept to toss Mr. Jones under that famous bus....only 30 more czars to go.

MSNBC

President Barack Obama's adviser Van Jones has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday.said early Sunday.

Jones, an administration official specializing in environmentally friendly "green jobs" with the White House Council on Environmental Quality was linked to efforts suggesting a government role in the 2001 terror attacks and to derogatory comments about Republicans.

Bye!

Update: Van Jones calls us pointing out his past statements <" a vicious smear campaign against me,"

"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."

He continued: "I have been inundated with calls -- from across the political spectrum -- urging me to 'stay and fight.' But I came here to fight for others, not for myself. I cannot in good conscience ask my colleagues to expend precious time and energy defending or explaining my past. We need all hands on deck, fighting for the future."

Lets be clear the only reason he resigned is someone in the White House focused grouped him and the numbers were so bad.....he had to go under the bus.

Lets give Gateway Pundit a big thank you he lead this fight.

On to the next one.

Update 2 (Barbarossa): This deserves some graphic action.
