The Smear continues - but like all good current right-wing conspiracy theories, it involves Bill Clinton.
Here's the set up.
- Senator McCain was tortured and interrogated at the "Hanoi Hilton."
- The Hilton was run by the GRU.
- The GRU was Soviet Military Intelligence.
- The notes of these interrogations were initially written in Vietnamese.
- They were translated into Russian by someone only identified as "T" (for "translator").
- After the Soviet Union fell in 1991, the CIA and the GRU made a deal for a document swap.
- All of T's translated notes are now in the hands of the CIA.
- Bill Clinton had been a CIA asset from the first week he was at Oxford.
- The CIA is a left-wing liberal group.
- The CIA's main job recently is attacking conservatives generally and George W Bush in particular.
- The Clintons have access to those notes.
- The Clintons will blackmail John McCain into throwing the election in favor of - the Clintons.
These are the folks we'll be arguing against this summer - regardless of the Democratic nominee. So hold on tight it's going to be a bumpy ride.
