From a reader:

your post on NRO said: “…conspiracy theorists, for example, tend to assume there are conspiracies everywhere precisely because if they were
in power they would be hatching conspiracies themselves.”

YES YES YES! This thought haunts me every time I hear the Dems make Bushitler accusations. What does it say about them? (Didn’t Hillarycare remind you of the Italian run-on-time train system?)

This is component of human nature is observed by the Patriarch: “[the guilty] flee when none pursue” and the Bard: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” (Heady company, eh?)
