    Rhetorical question, I really don't want to know.

    It was difficult to get through those without turning the air blue around here. Sailor's habits die hard.

    Thank you, I think, for those. We need to know about them, I suppose, but the distractions and misinformation are infuriating.

    A bit o/t but if we had a running commentary on operations in detail from those running the show, or at least more unfettered media access, these types of ludicrous speculations would have less impact.

      There's a very large proportion of the population who lack critical thinking skills and will fall for anything. Witness the tea baggers....

      At least the DKos people are much better informed.

      Probably wouldn't work with these people. They'd just get paranoid and start howling "COVERUP"

      I've read many DKos diaries discussing the futility of reasoning with them.

      Misinformation and deception - the stock and trade of politics. Chompsky has a lot to say about this - but we'd be getting way O/T.
