Of course the wingnuts are too humorless to get that I was making fun of their typical wild accusations by insisting a Glen Beck listener had to be responsible for the Times Square bombing attempt. They invariably make all kinds of ungrounded speculation, but squeal like stuck pigs if anyone else does it.
Why, just today, another wingnut did it again!
At Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds puts the burden on federal authorities. He admits it’s only “speculation” to suppose that feds “rushed the arrest” because of “pressure from the Administration to generate some militia-threat headlines precisely at the time that the ‘militia threat’ was the talking-point of the day. But it’s not unreasonable speculation, based on what we know so far . . .”
Wingnuts don’t understand that the headline I used was a parody of a statement made by Peggy Noonan in which she talked about rumors that Bill Clinton was being blackmailed. She said some people might think it was irresponsible to speculate, “but it would be irresponsible not to speculate.”
Hence, the headline. Silly wingnuts!
