Leftie Conspiracies

Whoops: Kent Conrad, Liberal Activist Manufacture Phony Conspiracy Theory About Fake Letters. Say Anything

Should Jesse the Body get on the case? Ventura to sniff out conspiracies on TV show. Fargo Forum.

And then there's the left's birther obsession. James Kirchick, NY Daily News:
Hysteria over the concocted magnitude of birtherism reached an almost comical fever pitch last week when Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) requested that a vote on a resolution honoring the 50th anniversary of Hawaiian statehood be delayed. The decree cited Hawaii as Obama's birthplace, causing liberals to jump on the episode as evidence of the GOP's embrace of birthers. Yet the reason for Bachmann's motion, as anyone remotely familiar with congressional procedure would know, was nothing more scandalous than the absence of a quorum. The resolution passed unanimously several days later.
Hmm--and the origin? NRO:
The birth-certificate business is not a uniquely conservative phenomenon; the allegation that Obama was born in Kenya seems to have originated with a Hillary Clinton supporter at a blog called The Blue State. Either way, this fantasy is not particularly widespread within the conservative movement, but it has attracted enough interest that it needs to be addressed.
Nuff said--but if you lefties are hanging your tinfoil hats on the hope that these distractions will save you from Americans taking a hard look at Obama's ruinous Big Brother policies, go ahead, make it up, try to shut us up, make my day.

And this. Jim Geraghty, NRO: When More Than Half Dislike Your Ideas, It's More Than 'The Right-Wing Base'
