The one thing I dread about re-electing Obama is having to endure another four years of comically inept conspiracies.
The latest version of Barrack Obama’s real history embraces the notion that Frank Marshall Davis, a notorious communist agitator, was in fact Obama’s most influential mentor. At least, this is what Paul Kengor argues in his new book, The Communist. It makes perfect sense that during Obama’s high-school years, while smoking weed, skipping class to shoot buckets and dabbling in coke, learned that it might be pretty cool to lead a communist take-over of the world.
However, never let it be said that conspiracy theorists aren’t good story tellers. Davis as an influential mentor, by itself, just wasn’t fun enough. Too much crap about ideology and intellectualism, using lots of words that I have to look up and other forcing-me-to-think bullshit. Nope. This story needed help and who could be more qualified with fiction than the right-wing blogosphere? The (new and improved) truth has just been released and with a few taps on Google, you can learn what the librul lamestream media is hiding. We now have the sordid details of Obama’s mother, “posing nude for communist Frank Marshall Davis´ “subversive” magazines.” And what could make more sense than to publish nudie pictures in communist propaganda.
Yet, like a paella without saffron, something was still missing. Bombshell: Frank Marshal Davis is Obama’s real father. Ah, perfect! Like so many on the irrational right, WND took to this story like an alcoholic stumbling across a bottle of Mad Dog 20-20. It is ironic enough that WND concurrently endorses three mutually conflicting theories on Obama’s citizenship. Those hair-brained offerings variously argue that Obama is ineligible to be president because he was born in Kenya; he was born in Hawaii but his father was not a citizen, ergo Obama doesn’t meet the Natural Born Citizenship standard; or, he was born in Hawaii but before Hawaiian statehood. Now we have four to choose from.
Isn’t the first rule of a good lie to get your story strait?
