The “I’m not a doctor, I just play one on TV” analogy moved into the political sphere long ago, most recently when a faux doctor appeared at a town hall run by Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.
Now we have something of a reverse analogy, someone who actually was a 9/11 Truther but who claims he was not. Van Jones, famous Glenn Beck foe and Green Jobs Czar, signed a petition calling for an investigation into whether the Bush administration knew of the 9/11 attacks in advance and whether the 911 Commission engaged in a cover-up.
Jones will end up resigning, and when he does, this will be his explanation:
“I am not a 9/11 Truther, I just played one in real life.”
