So where is the tin foil hat crowd today?
I mean isnt it obvious that the plane crash in New York yesterday was the doing of the Bush administartion? Lets look at the facts:

-George Steinbrenner is a Republican.

-Cory Lidle did not do so hot in his last appearance as a Yankee.

-Steinbrenner needs a way to get rid of Lidle, and help out the Republican party by scaring up the terror alert level.

-So Steinbrenner's cohorts in association with Karl Rove rig Lidle's plane up to run into the Empire State Building, it obviously missed and hit the apartment building, thus causing panic and an October surprise.

This story is sarcastic and aimed at those whose first reaction to the news yesterday was that it must have some foul play involved. I told you people you were nuts. You need to check yourselves.

14. actually that is John Kerry testifying before Congress in 1971
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 02:50 PM by LSK
about what was going on during Vietnam.

http://www.richmond.edu/~ebolt/history398/JohnKerryTest...

Also, Kerry won in 2004. I guess you are not familiar with Ken Blackwell. Maybe Mark Crispin Miller and John Conyers are tinfoilers too.

Kerry made some mistakes in his campaign, but does this look like a loser to you?

33. I know the story behind Kerry's testimony on Vietnam.
It was very admirable. So why did he allow himself to be swiftboated? How did someone so promissing turn out to be such a dud in a national campaign? I guess it may not be all his fault, his campaign managers are also most likely at fault.

So you believe Kerry won in 2004, fair enough, im sure there was corruption, but it should not have even been CLOSE! Any campaign team and candidate with half a heart and half a brain could have defeated Bush.

approximately 2.5 hours a week. Happy? I dont need to sit in front of a TV to know what is going on. I can read the legislation and the procedures. Why do I need to watch them vote and listen to crazy people call in and say off the wall stuff.

45. Just because some people here were wildly speculating
before the facts came out. Literally the second post in the thread after the plane hit that building yesterday was to words, "October surprise?"

Now you tell me if that is rational or not.

46. And you rouse from your lethargy for THIS utter waste of HTML?
You only pop your head up to call other DUers 'loonies'
and to pass your condescending judgement upon their avatars?

Under such circumstances, the fact that you've been here
for 3 years is _NOT_ a point in your favor.

NEWBIES might deserve the benefit of doubt,
but you should damn well know BETTER by now.

I'll bid you "good day" now.

Good day.

35. Woah.
Just because my first reaction to some news isn't "OMG Rove did this!" I am a republican now? I have never voted for those fucking assholes that are ruining our country and never will. Actually in my state I can't talk to anyone about politics. I cant stand fundie Christian idiots, and I am not going to say that Ben Nelson is a good Democrat. I will vote for Nelson but it will be with nose plugs.

12. I thought it was all Clintons fault, because he was for it before
he was against it, and liberal moonbats wear tin foil hats Ted Kennedy killed a woman and as the Iraqis stand up we'll stand down because if our troops come home terrorists will follow them and Al Gore said he invented the internet because Kerry said terrorists were just a nuisance and liberals just need to get over it and their war on christmas or their war on easter shows that Dean screamed and George Soros gives money to moveon.org who wants us to cut and run rather than adapt to win then Jane Fonda stood near John Kerry and they have no ideas as activist judges want to kill snowflake babies in addition what about the busses, the busses, and they hate us for our freedoms 9/11 changed everything this is a new kind of war that we fight over there so we don't have to fight them here it's a dangerous world and Democrats want to deal with terrorism with law enforcement pass a global test and wait for them to attack us before we attack them and nobody anticipated he would crash his airplane into a building.

32. Not only that, jhuth.......
There was no torture at Abu Grahib, just silly fraternity pranks and it`s liberal wussies who make a big deal out of nothing and George Bush flew secret missions during the Vietnam War unlike Democrats who never served because they were too busy throwing other soldier`s medals over walls or having secret meetings with Jane Fonda and who says this economy isn`t great just because a few million people put groceries on their charge cards and so what if people are facing foreclosures at a record rate and global warming is a big, fat lie because ice shelves always melt anyhow no matter what and why shouldn`t we be in Iraq because how else are we going to get the oil we`ve won and Democrats never go to church and they hate God and they teach their children marry their own cousins and none of them work because they`re all Socialists who hate freedom but love terrorists.

15. Cory Lidle was al qaeda. I am so shocked by this.
Seriously, do you really think that the Bush administration had no motive for allowing al qaeda to carry out the 9-11 attack? Do you really think that there is no evidence that a) efforts to investigate what was going on with arabs taking flying lessons were dead ended; b) information handed to Bush administration officials regarding al qaeda efforts were ignored; c) efforts to track and destroy al qaeda initiated by the clinton administration were downgraded and or stopped by the bush administration prior to 9-11?

How many coincidences does it take before you lead headed coincidence theorists give up and accept reality? They Let It Happen On Purpose.
