Conspiracy Theories

Mark Graber

One "advantage" of blogging is one can publish speculations that would justifiably be rejected by any reputable media or journal. So with this in mind, feel free to recommend the appropriate anti-paranoid drugs.

Is it a coincidence that Harriet Miers withdraws on the day or the day before a special prosecutor indicts major Bush administration figures? Or is it the case that if this administration managed the government as well as it manages the news, the unemployment rate would be 0%, Iraq would be the most democratic state in the world, and gas would cost a nickel a gallon?

Is it utter-paranoia to think that the Bush administration knew that Miers was a weak candidate, but used her as a stalking horse for someone like Edith Jones, who after all has lots of judicial experience and every credential Miers was accused of lacking?

Just thinking out-loud.

I like the tilt of you tin hat.

It could be that Harriet Miers was only an attempt to distract the public eye.

But that would be too clever.
 

We have to wait a few days to see if this is a coincidence or utter paranoia. It is really not very clever; rather it demonstrates incompetence.
 

mark, while your analysis may be dead on, and while i do believe that we will now be hit with a dyed in the wool conservative the neocons will love, having known you for as long as i have, in this case i will vote on the side of utter paranoia. may i suggest immediate family consultations for the correct anti-paranoia medications?

There are two main predictions for the future; it’s either appealing or appalling.An appealing future is created by people who identify their real values in life and believe in what they can do.
