[Monday am note - some lovely updates at bottom]

“Green jobs czar” Van Jones resigns.

The Incompetence Meter reads “99″.

And let’s be clear, the incompetence factor here was not in the “failure to vet” Van Jones. Obama and his senior aides certainly knew all about Van Jones’ recent past – they just did not perceive it would be a problem.

It was not a matter of failing to sharpen their pencils and dot all the “i”s. It was a failure to have lived among normal Americans during any recent decades. And also not having the slightest clue what is actually going on in this country.

While it has been suggested here in the past “thank goodness Obama and his crew are so incompetent or they would REALLY be dangerous,” this episode is a reminder that everyone needs to continue to keep a really close eye on these clowns. We can’t always count on incompetence to stymie their plans.

But anyway: thank you, Glenn Beck. It’s not exactly like you’re facing off against the A-Team here, but you spoke up when everyone else was still silent.


UPDATE: Good overview, with the measure of the man, here.

UPDATE II: And this I steer you to because … well, just because I like you, and your enjoyment is important to me.

UPDATE III: Next logical step here, thanks to Mike Pence.

UPDATE IV: Following that, I know you will especially appreciate savoring this.
