OK, I want to know who in the Republicant Party knew North Korea was going to explode a nuclear weapon just weeks before an important election in the US.
Obviously, someone arranged for North Korea to explode a bomb now to benefit Republicants at the polls. It’s this election’s version of the Osama bin Laden tape, designed to make voters lose their nerve about pursuing political change.
At least one talking head agrees with me.
Clearly, if this development benefits Republicants, they must behind it. Right? Right?
For example, if you drop a plate of food and your dog comes running over to gobble it up off the floor, he must have caused that food to fall. What other explanation could there be?
It could never be, say, your own clumsy handling of the plate that caused the accident. Perhaps if you put your dog under oath you could be convinced of his innocence; otherwise, he’s just plain guilty.
That’s sound reasoning. Or, what passes for it lately.
PS: Some officials are now saying that wasn't a nuclear blast at all. It will be interesting to see if Republicants go with the "that was no nuclear blast, so don't worry" angle, or the "that was a nuclear blast, so don't let the 'weak' Democrats win" angle. Stay tuned.
