Over in the Bristol Press and other Connecticut rags, my column for this week, about Obama’s birth certificate and Bush’s involvement with the destruction of the World Trade Center, inspired indignation among commenters who think I should’ve spent more time researching the facts and less time making excuses for mass murder.
Quote from column: “The idea [that the American government brought down the WTC] has a certain appeal. It would have been comforting, during the gloomiest days of the Bush administration, to think ‘At least the country’s being led by brilliant Machiavellian geniuses who know exactly what they’re doing.’”
Commenter who thinks I’m an idiot: “There is nothing comforting about the idea that your own elected government would murder it's [sic] own citizens and lie about it for political gain. You have failed to get your facts straight or draw any kind of reasonable conclusion. Blog fail.”
Quote from column: “Obama’s probably not capable of demolishing the World Trade Center and fooling the world about who did — that requires the genius of a George W. Bush, possibly with an Illuminati/Mossad connection — but if we’re lucky, he is at least smart enough to have spent several years serving as a U.S. senator without anyone realizing he’s secretly been an Indonesian citizen all along.”
Commenter who thinks I’m a lazy jerk: “How you could even begin to think of yourself as a journalist is so far beyond comprehension I don't know that there is a word in existence that will properly convey my disgust. You Maam, [sic] and those with similar mindsets are exactly what is wrong with America, and I hope that when your ridiculous opinions are shown to be the baseless joke they are you'll all do the honorable thing and leave this country.”
