Decomposing Conspiracy Theory Lurches Back to Life
Today’s headache-inducing episode of wingnut density is the revival of the rotting corpse of the “Bill Ayers wrote Obama’s books” conspiracy theory, after this blogger encountered Ayers at an airport and had a short, belligerent conversation with him — in which Ayers told her, “I wrote Dreams From My Father.”
Of course, “Backyard Conservative” never even considered the possibility that Ayers was, as they say across the pond, taking the piss — if he even said it at all. But “Backyard Conservative” proves it by posting a picture of … her boarding pass. Now that’s some first class evidence! Who wouldn’t be convinced?
And of course, now this story is running rampant through the right wing blogosphere. Bill Ayers must be laughing his butt off.
