Jones, almost by the hour, is being belatedly vetted by the New Media because the Old Media took a pass — and the White House itself had no intention of speaking up until called upon.
Is it really this easy to work at the White House? Can you really have done a jail stretch, actually been twice arrested (once during the Rodney King riots and a second time during the 1999 free trade riots in Seattle) and work in the White House? Can you even get into the White House when you have a history with the police?
Maybe Congress should use Jones as an opportunity to question the whole legality of csar appointments, which just seems to be a White House end run around Congressional approvals in the first place.
