Another Tea Party Crazy

Another day, another example of right wing craziness, this one out of North Carolina:

Bill Randall is a Tea Party candidate seeking the GOP nomination for the 13th district Congressional seat currently held by Democrat Brad Miller.  The other day Randall offered a new theory for the cause of the Gulf oil spill:  The Obama Administration and BP conspired to make it happen.  Here are his remarks:

Now, I'm not necessarily a conspiracy person, but I don't think enough investigation has been done on this.  Someone needs to be digging into that situation. Personally, and this is purely speculative on my part and not based on any fact, but personally I feel there is a possibility that there was some sort of collusion. I don't know how or why, but in that situation, if you have someone from a company violating a safety process and the government signing off on it, excuse me, maybe they wanted it to leak.

But then it got beyond what was anticipated, and we had an explosion and loss of life. And, oh man, then we have panic. Is there a cover up going on? I'm not saying there necessarily is. But I think there's enough facts on the table for people that (they) really need to do some investigative research and find out what went on with that and get a subpoena of records and everything else.

You've got to love the way he admits that he has no proof or evidence of any sort, but then just keeps on going.  Where does the GOP find these guys??!!

Unbelievable, Tiffany. I was never a George W. Bush fan, but I recall after 9/11 there were similar claims made about his Administration's "involvement" in the attacks. There are a lot of crazy people out there...

He left out the bit about Obama being in collusion with aliens. Everybody knows the oil leak was kicked off my a Martian death ray...

Right, well the alien stuff is simply taken for granted. I mean everyone knows about the martian involvement....

There really isn't any positive way to look at this is there. I actually read about this in the paper yesterday; didn't see video until this afternoon. But I was very surprised to see that Randall is African American. Don't know why that surprised me do much, but it did.

What is it with these conservative lunatics? Is it something in the water? Inbreeding? A limited worldview devoted to stupefying paranoia and self-victimization?

All of the above...?

All of the above. Definitely.

Probably the same place as Alvin Greene of South Carolina.

If Democrats can claim Bush planned 9/11, then why couldn't Obama plan this disaster? You have to admit, it makes it easier for Obama to pass his Carbon Trading Scheme.

Come on, Mark. Democrats didn't claim Bush planned 9/11. Lunatics did. This is lunatic stuff, too. And this time it's coming from a GOP/Tea Party candidate for Federal office. And this disaster should make EVERYONE more inclined to support legislation that promotes alternative energy sources.
