Foregone Conclusion

As for the continuing saga of WTC 7, we're finally going to learn how the government screwed us over on that caper, too. Rosie, oh, Rosie! You have taken the lunatic fringe to a new dimension beyond time, space, and any hope of reason. Nobody has chronicled your frightening mental contortions with more incisive wit than Jonah Goldberg of National Review Online. His article on Rosie O'Donnell's 9/11 meltdown, "The Queen of Nice goes nuts," is a classic suitable for framing. Read it when you want to laugh out loud.

Ever since JFK's assassination, leftys seem eager to believe that anything bad happening anywhere in the world is directly traceable to a U.S. government conspiracy. This one-size-fits-all answer seems to work well for them, which I suppose is why it remains so resilient after four decades of automatic application.

I can see why. It's certainly easier than thinking.
