Jack Cafferty on the Latest Bush Administration Conspiracy

CNN's Jack Cafferty has been awarded the weekly Judge Elihu Smails Award over at Anklebiting Pundits. Why? He believes that the latest Osama bin Ladin tape was produced by the Bush administration in order to deflect attention from the upcoming hearings about the "wiretapping of America's telephones."

The way he puts it, one might think that each and every phone in America has been bugged, and all mundane conversations about the neighbor who is having an affair and what's being planned for tonight's dinner are being logged for future reference. So the bin Ladin tape shows up now. Coincidences do happen.

What's sad is he is not the only person who believes the nonsense about the tape's "coincidental appearance" to be true.

I belong to a community theater group. We had a meeting just this afternoon in order to plan our upcoming season. At the end of the meeting, someone blurted out that very same theory, which then started a maelstrom of anti-Bush, anti-conservative rhetoric. There was derisive talk saying that ecoterrorists shouldn't be branded as such by a group who thinks it's okay to shoot abortion doctors. (Only extremist weirdos consider it okay to shoot an abortion doctor, but try explaining that to these people.) One person actually said that North Dakota's climate is much like that of Siberia, and that we all need to be careful.

As I am the ONLY conservative in the group -- and they know it -- I simply sat quietly until the tirade ended. Being outnumbered by a ratio of nine to one, being silent is sometimes the best thing.

So, hats off to Jack Cafferty and his league of followers, who put an effective damper on meaningful discussion and debate. Keep those tin hats clean and shiny, as you never know when you might be called upon to don them.

I'm pretty sure North Dakota IS like Siberia, climate-wise.

As for all this domestic wiretapping nonsense, I would just say, don't be talking to al Qaeda, and you won't be eavesdropped on. Follow Robocop's advice in these matters: "Stay out of trouble."

Remember back when Jack Cafferty was just another seemingly gregarious local NYC news talking head? I actually liked him.

Who knew he was such a paranoid simpleton? I mean, geez. I know housecats that are smarter than Jack Cafferty.

I like Jack...I think he should suggest we send Pres Bush back to Texas NOW !!!!! to oversee all those illegal alien teachers the Dallas School board wants to hire..he then can be sure that none of these students are d"left behind"./..BUT...I think that school board has a policy of all new hires being bi lingual...perhaps Bush would need a crash course..he could call Pres Fox of Mexico for pointers !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
