    Remember when kids watched cartoons instead of having politics they're too young to even understand shoved down their throats 24/7?

    I love the look Jeffrey Lord's face. It's like he's rethinking everything that he has ever said and did in his life.

    This is how you explain it to your kids, Van. Set 'em down, look 'em in the eye, and say, "The best man won." See how easy that was?

    Such a riveting tale, I honestly copy and pasted it to word, saved on my hard drive, backed it up on a jump drive, drove to the bank, put the jump drive in the safe deposit box, and will leave it there until my kids turn about 12 (when they can actually state their age, and ask what it is I'm showing them), when I will pick it up, put it in an old USB drive reader and relay this cool story to them and tell them, "kids, this is what a cool story should look and sound like...not like the stories your generation tells.

    You tell your kids, "Kids, I went to Yale and I'm a successful public figure, don't let race baiters sidetrack your potential."

    I don't think Van Jones could have said it any better.
