More Conspiracy Theories

All Posts No Comments

The Waxman-Markey bill squeaked through the House. I think it is undeniable that the coverage of Michael Jackson’s death helped in its passage. People were distracted by the coverage of Jackson, and so not as many called their representatives to complain.

The obvious conspiracy theory suggests itself, especially when you lump in Farrah Fawcett and Ed McMahon. I am not advancing this as a serious theory, but I will say this: If Waxman-Markey squeaks through the Senate later this year, and Paul McCartney dies the night before, I’m gonna be really suspicious. (And if you throw in Jaclyn Smith and Burt Ward the same week, I will smell a rat for sure.)
