When I think conspiracy theories, I think ‘truthers’ and Charlie Sheen. I’m loathe to consider them much less invent them, yet a couple of hot news stories got me thinking.
Biden’s China Visit. Our foot-in-mouth veep was busy defending stutterers and China’s one child policy in Beijing this week, enraging talk-show hosts and regular Americans who don’t particularly care for forced abortions and re-education camps. But what was this trip really all about? Was it to reassure our sugar-daddy and grovel? Or, maybe it was to make sure President Hu was still up for making a few campaign donations to Obama’s re-election campaign. If I’m the Chinese, Russians or any other enemy state, I’m calling any one of Obama’s campaign bundlers to see where I can send the check.
Sarah Palin’s upcoming Iowa speech. Many pundits and prognosticators are predicting Palin will make an announcement on September 3. If she’s as dumb as the mainstreamers portray her, she’ll announce. Recent polls show her barely making a dent in the Republican field and her negatives make Hillary’s ’08 numbers look like Mother Teresa’s. She isn’t dumb, so what could be her big announcement? Could it be that she will be endorsing Rick Perry? Perhaps.
