A Conspiracy Against Believability

March 24, 2012

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, of Maricopa County, AZ is now claiming that the birther conspiracy to place a foreign-born president in the White House (and have him conduct business exactly like a native-born Democrat would) now includes a media conspiracy “bigger than Watergate” to keep his investigation off of the front page.

Arpaio doesn’t explain why the national press targeted his investigation, which was initiated by the Surprise Tea Party (still my favorite name for a city, but it needs an official “!” at the end), or how the press managed to make the facts alleged by Arpaio to sound entirely unbelievable to the average 4th grade civics student.

Also unexplained is the conspiracy that gave a county sheriff in Arizona the authority to investigate the Hawaii Department of Health and/or the Federal Elections Commission.
