Embattled White House Adviser Resigns
Van Jones, the so-called green czar who has been criticized roundly from the right for his past far left affiliations and for more recent statements clearly unbecoming of a White House aide has resigned.
Most recently, Jones has referred to Republicans as "assholes." An organization he founded also has sought to topple Fox News Channel's Glenn Beck by pressuring advertisers to pull their commercials from the show. Beck responded with an on-air campaign of his own targeting Jones - especially for his previously avowed communist affiliation.
