    Dear Kos,

    What is this with you calling people "crazy"?

    You've dismissed as loony or ridiculous anyone who comes in here with a conspiracy theory about election fraud or 9/11. In fact, you've forbidden people to post!

    SURE, there are loony theories out there, but not all of them are promulgated by loony people.

    After 6-1/2 years of increasingly surreal behavior behind the curtain, how can any still vaguely rational person NOT consider conspiracy explanations? Maybe not the most over-the-edge ones, but that's a matter of opinion.

    After all, there WERE conspiracies to start the war, to violate FISA and many other laws, to out Valerie Plame, to put the fix in for the Justice Department and every other part of the executive, to ignore Congress... need I go on? People who suggest conspiracies about ANYTHING involving this administration, including the discussions you've banned, may be very wrong, or irrational, but that's not the same thing as "crazy."

    In the post above, you're dismissing some diarists who are evidently Ron Paul fans or dissers of John Conyers as crazy. (I'm neither, btw, though I just sent off a long email to Conyers at http://judiciary.house.gov/... urging him to get going on impeachment at long last.)

    Does that make me crazy? Possiblee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee-ee. Perhaps you can decide.

    As our Fearless Leader, it's nice to have your opinion, which I would never think of censoring, but only if we can also freely hear the opinions of anybody who authentically posts here (trolls excluded).

    So, please stop with the Krauthammer analysis of your community members. It's driving me NUTS.

    Trentino: I am willing to do anything to prevent this war. Firefly: It's too late. I've already paid a month's rent on the battlefield.
