Proving that there’s a lot of paranoia (or maybe they call it "heightened imagination") on left-wing talk radio, certifiably nutty host (and former CNN employee) Mike Malloy is at it again.
Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer reports on his Monday show, Malloy refused to accept the premise that al-Qaeda put a young Nigerian jihadi on a flight to Detroit for a Christmas Day massacre. It was, claimed Malloy, a Republican plot:
Now, the inquiry, the questions are being raised as to whether or not this is not a deliberate attempt to embarrass... ah, that's not quite a strong enough word, but let's start there, embarrass the Obama Administration -- that there are forces at work in this country, and I believe this as surely as I put on my right shoe before my left -- that there are forces alive who are very active, very wealthy in this country, at work in this country that want Obama to fail no matter what and the idea of killing 200 to 300 people on a jetliner in order to make the point is nothing. It means nothing....
My gut feeling is this was deliberate, this was deliberately done in order to put the Obama Administration in such a vice grip, that it's impossible to get anything done, to raise so much fear, this is what Republicans do, this is what they do.
Maloney joked this was an expose on "the real killers" -- even though, mercifully, no one was harmed on Christmas in Detroit.
