So by now everyone has heard the news about Van Jones' resignation from the White House. Meteor Blades has the story here.

If you're like me you're plenty pissed off about this, and even more so due to people like Glenn Beck being lent credibility when they say things like this.

You can start by taking one simple action. Sign on to Color of Change's petition to Beck's advertisers at and tell everyone you know.

So far Color of Change has quietly managed to get 57 of Beck's advertisers to drop their support of his program. He's only got a handful left.

So let's finish the job, sign the petition now at

You did that? Ok great now tell everyone you know over twitter, facebook, myspace, wherever you hang out to do the same.

The really dangerous thing about this is Beck has his scalp and if anyone thinks he's going to stop with Van Jones then they are mistaken. It's up to us to stop this.

In the comments lets talk about what else we can do.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
