65. Thank you -- wasn't aware that some of those people had "debunked" the 9-11 Truth Movement
That reminds me of David Corn, Mark Hertzgaard, and some others who "debunked" the idea that the 2004 election was stolen -- and yet the "evidence" that they put forward was remarkably weak.

I had a difficult time trying to figure some of that stuff out, and I came to the conclusion that, although they probably believed what they said, at the same time they made themselves believe it because they wanted to believe it. More specifically, I think that they felt that if liberals put out a message that mainstream Americans feel is too "far out", it will give liberals a bad name and consequently dilute other aspects of their message. I really believe that that is their thinking on these matters.

I don't agree with that philosophy but I kind of understand it and don't judge them too harshly on it. Same thing with impeachment, I believe.
