i predict: let the conspiracy theories start
I am breaking my self imposed hiatus from news blogging due to the beautiful story coming out of Iraq this morning.
This news has almost forced me to once again swim into the muck of Democratic Underground, which I have not read in almost two weeks.
But I'm not going to do it. I'm just going to guess. Someone braver than I can go there and tell me if I'm right.
First, I assume that they are engaging in the same kind of pissing on the parade that Metafilter is. They are probably talking about an illegal war, posting that Bush is the one who should be captured instead and saying that this will not stop the "insurgents" from their round of attacks on U.S. troops.
The conspiracy theories will abound, such as:
- It is a Saddam double, not the man himself.
- They had him for months, they were just waiting until Bush's poll numbers were slipping.
- This is to take our minds off of the fact that we haven't captured bin Laden yet.
- The whole thing is faked and staged, just like the Thanksgiving story.
I don't even have to look to know that I'm probably right.
Anyhow, back to not posting about DU. That was my one break from the moonbat hiatus. Really.
