    Part of it is the sheer audacity of their crimes.
    Who would believe that the President of the United States would fabricate evidence to justify invading a country that was no threat? Who would believe that the Vice President, the National Security Adviser, the Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Defense, among others, were part of the con?

    Tin-foil hat time. Anyone who believed such a lurid conspiracy theory has probably spent too much time in the sun, right?

    Only one problem: it's true.

    •  And Who Would Believe .... (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      that a rogue Republican majority of the U.S. Supreme Court would seize the role of Arbiter of Presidential Elections from the Congress.  And Who Would Believe that every single Democratic senator(and there were 50 of them) would confirm this extra-constitutional hijacking by refusing to object to the awarding of Florida's 25 electoral votes to bush.

      When I was younger, I remember studying about the stolen election of 1876 and I remember speculating about the possibility of witnessing a stolen presidential election in my own lifetime.  If I had been told that not only would I live to see exactly that, but that it would be perpetrated, in broad daylight,  by the Supreme Court - well I don't see how I would have been able to accept that.  

      Before bush, I was so naive, in so many ways.

      But. Not. Now.
