It Had to Happen

"I’m not necessarily a conspiracy person, but I don’t think enough investigation has been done on this. Someone needs to be digging into that situation. Personally, and this is purely speculative on my part and not based on any fact, but personally I feel there is a possibility that there was some sort of collusion."
You know, just as surely as you can predict oh, say the sun rising in the East, you just knew there was going to be some dingbat Republican who would come out with a story like this: Barrack Obama and BP colluded to allow the oil leak to happen in the Gulf of Mexico. The purveyor of this imbecilic view is one Bill Randall, candidate in the Republican primary for a congressional seat in North Carolina. Of course, he doesn't know just why the Obama administration would want to do this, but it might be to further the passage of green and environmental legislation in Congress. And this would not be too far from the cracked brain views of such luminaries as Sarah Palin, who thinks that radical environmentalists are behind the spill. See, if radical environmentalists protest oil drilling everywhere else, then deep water drilling becomes necessary. See? Their fault.

My guess is that Republicans running for office all over the country now are going to kissing the butts of the Tea Party nuts now that a Libertarian has won the nomination for the Republican party Senate race, and a Tea Party nut case has won it in Nevada. Nothing is too crazy for these people to believe. The story is here. Mr Randall backtracked quickly, claiming he didn't say what he plainly said, which is standard practice now for politicians of all stripes.
