“Award-Winning Pioneer” Van Jones Joins Twitter; Is :) For Bill Maher Appearance Tonight
Happy Friday – Van Jones is on Twitter, and he’ll be on Real Time with Bill Maher tonight.
Glenn Beck – get your popcorn ready.
First, let’s start with Mr. Jones’ Twitter bio:
I am a a globally recognized, award-winning pioneer in human rights and the clean-energy economy, and a NYTimes bestselling author.
You forgot Militant Marxist, Communist, Green-ist, General Horrible Person!
For those who forgot, Van Jones is the former green “czar” who Glenn Beck successfully brought down as the first member of the Obama administration to fall due primarily to a cable news host’s relentless, and effective, focus.
There was a bit of a reconciliation recently, sarcastic as it may have been (“Mr. Glenn Beck, I see you and I love you”). But you’d think Glenn Beck may find something worthwhile in the tweets that are sure to emanate from @VanJones68. Sample tweet:
At hi school in SF: Security guard keeps staring and says, “You on TV?” Then smiles to a friend: “He look like Malcolm X.” To me: “Who ru?”
But then there was the tweet last night: “In LA, prepping for the Bill Maher show tmrw. So many topics, so little time! :)”
Yes, Jones is live on HBO tonight. If you were hoping for a contentious exchange of ideas, here’s the rest of the guest list: Paul Begala, Judd Apatow, Andrew Sullivan and Katrina vanden Huevel. So, probably not.
Either way, Maher isn’t likely to shy away from getting something quote-worthy out of his much-talked-about, but mostly-silent recently guest. Get those DVRs ready. As you can imagine, we’ll leave the Van Jones/Glenn Beck analysis and videos to other sites. Ha, kidding.
For a stroll down Memory Lane, this is what Glenn Beck thinks of Van Jones:
