A Great Quote re: Glenn Beck's Van Jones Metaphorical Lynch Mob

If you haven't seen it, there's a series of YouTube videos of Glenn Beck's systematic metaphorical career-lynching of former Green Czar Van Jones for his radical past. Huffington Post covered it in an article whose headline referred to Jones as "Beck's first scalp," but more importantly, blogger Mark Kleiman had the following fantastic reality check about this campaign of Beck's against all things Obama:

"If you want to say batshit-crazy stuff and still be treated as a respectable participant in the national debate, you'd better be a Republican."

True dat.
