Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Conspiracy Theories

A month old, but Jesse Walker's April 24th piece, The Paranoid Style Is American Politics, on Reason.com makes the case that conspiracy theories have been around in American politics since 1776. And it has a great opener.

On Tuesday the lesbian assassin of Vince Foster won Pennsylvania's presidential primary. In the larger contest for the Democratic nomination, though, she still lags behind a jihadist sleeper agent who is simultaneously a secret Muslim, a secret Communist, and a secret Republican. Whoever wins their race will go on to face a brainwashed puppet of the Viet Cong, and whoever wins that race will then get on with the modern president's central task: serving the interests of Mexico. It must be true, I read it in my email.
