the vast right-wing conspiracy is 10!

the vast right-wing conspiracy is 10!

time really flies when you’re having fun doesn’t it? 

on Sunday, January 27, the infamous vast right-wing conspiracy will be 10 years old.  actually this is an important political anniversary albeit one that is scorned on the left and embraced on the right.  ten years ago this is what hillary clinton said to matt lauer on the today show:

“This is the great story here for anybody willing to find and write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president.”

i suppose hillary really expected thinking americans to believe that this so-called cabal out there was capable of a great  and mystical power — a silent, faceless, underground group whose sole mission was to distroy America and all held dear.

the truth of course is different.  the “vast Right-wing conspiracy” lives and thrives today.  it includes tens of millions of intelligent, thinking Americans who have systematically been marginalized, demonized, and completely defamed in the public debate and culture.  we actually have a voice now — a strong one — in the form of talk radio, cable tv, incredible conservative authors and thinkers, and the blogosphere just to name a few.

after Ronald Reagan of course, so much links back to Rush.  he is “the voice” that pulled us all together, taught us, empowered us.  soon we had many other “voices” who have their own minds,  panders to no faction, and stands up to the critics.  this is hardly the stuff of secret groups plotting and planning the distruction of a couple of amoral politicians from Arkansas and their cronies.

its hard to believe its been a full decade of bitter accusations, silly snipings, and paranoia.  if your not with ”them” you most certainly are against them.  and its always someone else’s fault.  isn’t it ironic that during this birthday week, “they” are once again involved in a bitter accusation campaign with obama and many in the party they led so proudly are rising up against their dirty tricks?

oh well.  happy birthday to me, me, me!  and of course to all my fellow conspirators, i raise my glass.
