Republican idiocy: Obama planned oil spill

And I thought Reeves was prone to paranoid delusions:

Republican Congressional candidate William "Bill" Randall is suggesting that the Obama Administration and BP conspired to intentionally spill oil in the Gulf, resulting in 11 deaths and the worst environmental disaster in the nation's history.

Randall, who has aligned himself with the Tea Party movement, readily admits that he has no evidence that what he says is true. But that is not stopping him from from making the claim as he campaigns for in the June 22 GOP runoff to face incumbent Democratic Rep. Brad Miller on the November ballot.

Comments

I have no facts or evidence to support my opinion

but Mr. Randall appears to be of a member of an ethnic minority. And while I have no personal knowledge of his family or genealogy, I believe it may be possible that he is not an American citizen and may have been born in Kenya to Islamo-fascist parents who only claimed to be US citizens, but are now trying to infiltrate the US Congress as "sleepers" with the intention of undermining American exceptionalism. I may be wrong about this, but the question must be asked.

Perhaps the same goes...

...for Mr. Greene in the Palmetto State.

Remembering back

I seem to remember some idiots during the Katrina disaster saying Bush blew up the levies and did that because he hated blacks and wanted to reduce their influence in Louisana.

We have to know that idiocy exists in our country. A lot of it is political. Liberals democrats progressives can not afford to fall into making people in our country believe they are just more of the same. There is nothing to gain with that. nothing at all.

I think what Mr. McCrum might be alluding to

is that there were a lot of people who were afraid that the dams had been blown because THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED back in the great flood of 1927 (I think that was the date). During that flood, dams were blown to divert the thrust of the flood. So you can see how some folks were a little paranoid, esp. those who occupied land that they were afraid was up for a snatch once the current residents got swept away.

I, too, watched and read and kept up with the Katrina news, and I do not recall anyone who represented any group or political party saying that the feds blew the dams on purpose. I do know there were some nutjobs on local blogs and such who said it, but you can always find someone to say anything -- doesn't mean that the accusation gained traction anywhere.

(Unless you're Bill Randall and the tea-baggers are crowing with enthusiasm over the most lunatic of your pronouncements to date)

Thanks Brunette

wonder which kind...perhaps peanuts?

Memory

I remember that too. You aren't a liar, but then I don't think anyone actually called you that.

Lovex7

No

Not in so many words.

Gotta love that Bill

What a great show. Just when we started to think that SC was ahead in the "We run IDIOTS for Office" spectacle, here comes Bill Randall a-roaring up to place us in first again. For crying out loud, people, if you still have faith in our system of government, I urge you NOT to read the comments that have accumulated in the "Under the Dome" posting of this story.

Mr McCrum

I hope you did not think I was calling you a liar. It was certainly not my intent. I think the articulation of the suspicion of dams being blown was founded in a real recollection of the "Big Flood" back in '27 (if I have the date right).
