Arianna Gets All Wee-Weed Up

Epic sour grapes.

Arianna Huffington has posted (or someone who speaks English has posted for her) a "thank-you" to Glenn Beck:
Thank you, Glenn Beck. By helping force the resignation of Van Jones, you have done a great service to your country. But in the exact opposite way than what you intended.

Your vile and vicious smear campaign has helped reverse one of the worst examples of miscasting since John Wayne took on the role of Genghis Khan in The Conqueror...

Contrary to the media caricature, the real Van Jones is a thoughtful leader who knows how to use words to move people to action. To stick him behind a desk, working out the details of tax credits for green jobs -- incredibly important though the job is -- was never the best use of his unique and abundant skills.
Beck's "vile and vicious smear campaign" consisted almost entirely of playing recordings of Van Jones' own words.

And, Jones is "...a thoughtful leader who knows how to use words..." You mean words like "asshole" Arianna? Does that move you?

You dirty girl, Arianna. Perhaps you need a spanking.
