Just a quick note to let you know I am scheduled to be on CNN at 8:30am ET on Monday morning talking about my OpenLeft post from earlier today - specifically, about Van Jones and progressives' relationship with the Obama White House. Tune in if you are as pissed off as I am about what's been going on.
I'll preview my appearance by leaving you with two thoughts:
1. Teddy Roosevelt said: "To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Those who think otherwise are the definition of sycophants.
2. If you can't acknowledge that the right specifically targeted Van Jones, in part, because he was black and fit their racist narrative, then you need to think long and hard about your own views - and ignorance - on race.
See you tomorrow morning.
