Karl Rove in cahoots with bin Laden!

Hat tip to Geraghty at the Kerry Spot for this spew from a man who was once the "most trusted man in America" on Larry King Live:

CRONKITE: What we just heard. So now the question is basically right now, how will this affect the election? And I have a feeling that it could tilt the election a bit. In fact, I'm a little inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing. The advantage to the Republican side is to get rid of, as a principal subject of the campaigns right now, get rid of the whole problem of the al Qaqaa explosive dump. Right now, that, the last couple of days, has, I think, upset the Republican campaign.

It's wonderful how the Democrats have found such a marvelous scapegoat for their own failures. CBS publishes obvious forgeries? Rove. Bin Laden crawls from his cave to remind us all why the election of Bush is so important? Rove. Forget tinfoil hats, Cronkite is wearing a full tinfoil body suit as he takes his food out of tinfoil plates in a tinfoil house.

As Geraghty puts it, "What on earth do you have to say for the general public to declare, 'That's crazy talk' these days?" If you're a Democrat, apparently the sky's the limit.

I think you took that way out of proportion.

I think you took that way out of proportion.

Gosh, you're right. I mean, a trusted journalist merely insinuated that the President's closest political advisor is in league with the world's most wanted terrorist. What's the big deal?

Given the History of rove ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Rove ) and the known close ties of the bush and binladen families ( http://www.blythe.org/nytransfer-subs/2001mid/BUSHLADEN_-_by_Jared_Israel ) I'm not surprised that someone would make a comment like this. Please note, I didn't say the comment was true, just that I can understand why someone would say it. Unfortunatly, your politics are so partisan you immediatly conclude that a journalist with a log reputation for fairness is a democratic "scapegoat for their own failures". True journalism requires an open mind.

Known close ties of Bush and the Bin Laden families? How on earth does that make any sense?

Hell, even the Bin Laden family itself has no ties with Osama. They disowned him after he ran away and started being a terrorist for a reason, you know.

'Unfortunatly, your politics are so partisan you immediatly conclude that a journalist with a log reputation for fairness is a democratic "scapegoat for their own failures".'

Bubba, maybe you should read VoR's post again. He didn't say that Cronkite is a scapegoat.

no shit, VoR. agreed!

it seems that liberals today would MUCH rather believe a sinister conspiracy theory than a simple dumb truth.

the talking heads lob the idea out there and the kiddies happily catch and run with it. and it's these kiddies who assume BUSH supporters are brainwashed.

yea, ok. I don't need to go through six leaps of faith to come to my conclusion about Bush. Liberals can take their conspiracy theories and jump off the Golden Gate and drift out to sea on a floating carpet of bullshit.

It really doesn't get much better than this. There have been so many conspiracy theories, I'm suprised tinfoil stocks haven't been top market performers.

I'm a stupid moron, and my butt smells, and I like to kiss my own butt.

Cronkite: the guy wjo called the Tet offenseive a communist victory and re-invogorated the NVA/VC, subsequently causing untold carnage.
(See http://tinyurl.com/347fc for a review of Gen. Giap's book).

The same Cronkite that said we should knuckle under the the USSR because they really wouldn't crush us with their tanks (they were such nice people, really).

Yeah..THAT Cronkite scumbag; just as goofy as he was 35 years ago.

"Liberal looney" is redundant.
