Van Jones is Obama in Greenface, what our president did for race, Jones wants for the environment, New Jack Shit

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? He's Black AND he's Green, and like his former boss Obama, he's a neo-eco corporatist pushing... Cap-N-Trade! In Al Gore Nobel Prize circles, Van Jones is the environmental darling who was too hot --we're to infer principled-- for Obama's centrist administration.

Either one, of course, run under the supervision of the American and British Oil well, refinery and shipping Industry Experts who also work for BP, Exxon-Mobil, Massey Energy... The Rule of Three seems to have been pretty damned consistent in all of these lately, too, so maybe we can expect the Fully Capitalized Russian Oil Slick on the (deepwater) horizon? 18923
