More Rosie

If the e-mail I’ve been getting for the past 24 hours is any indication, then Rosie O’Donnell has become the patron saint of lunatic lefties everywhere. Here’s one fine citizen’s defense of O’Donnell’s conspiracy-mongering:

Why are you, as well as the entire Right, AFRAID of the truth? We have never had a NON-PARTISAN study of what happened, and you know this to be true. The Commission LIED, and Americans know this to be a fact. You call Ms. O’Donnell ‘clearly unwell’, but she’s not anywhere NEAR as insane as Bush and Cheny are!!! You are supporting evil criminals, and karma’s a bitch. I have the utmost faith that God will never allow these idiots to continue their path of deceit and destruction (elections have consequences…and Rethugs will NEVER win another election as the Party of Death, Lies, and Incompetence).

Lacking the willpower to restrain myself, I responded:

It seems I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know when I say

that my editors and I — indeed, the entire Right — are afraid of the

truth about 9/11 for one simple reason: We helped Bush and Cheney plan

the attacks. A full, non-partisan study, as opposed to the sham 9/11

Commission report, would implicate me and a long list of other

conservative pundits (Goldberg, Will, even little Ben Shapiro) in the

controlled demolition that brought down the twin towers and the

Oscar-Meyer Weinermobile filled with explosives (that’s right — look

closer) that we paid some homeless guy to ram into the side of the

Pentagon. 
Why did we do it? Oil. Cheney promised us a cut of Halliburton’s profits

from its no-bid contracts in Iraq, so we all worked together on 9/11 to

give Bush an excuse to start the war he was planning all along.

Naturally, the American sheeple took the bait, and now I can afford the

things I’ve always wanted, like a Hummer made of solid gold and trips to

outer space with N’Sync’s Lance Bass.
Why am I telling you all this? Simple. By sending me this e-mail, I’m

afraid you signed your own ticket to Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the

Patriot Act, a secret 9/11 Cover-Up Team deep within the bowels of the

FBI automatically receives a high-priority alert anytime someone sends

an e-mail containing the words “AFRAID”, “NON-PARTISAN” and “LIED” in

all caps; it’s a clear sign that the sender has learned the truth about

9/11.
So you see, I can tell you all about my involvement in 9/11 because by

the time you get this e-mail, the 9/11 Cover-Up Team (911-CUT) will

already be knocking on your door.
Pity. I thought someone as clever as you would have figured out the

FBI’s keyword algorithm a long time ago. 
Stephen
P.S. If God is all-knowing and all-powerful, and if you have the utmost

faith that He is opposed to Bush and Cheney and their path of deceit and

destruction, then why didn’t He prevent them from gaining power in the

first place?

I’ll let you know if I hear back.
