Jim Jeffords Tin Foil Hat Fits Just Fine

Senator Jim “Turncoat” Jeffords who has mostly disappeared off the national political radar since his defection from the Republican Party in 2001. While he calls himself an Independent, as the story below indicates he appears to be most comfortable in the Tin Foil Brigade.

U.S. Sen. Jim Jeffords, the Vermont Independent, may face a clear field right now in a 2006 re-election bid, but his March 22 performance on Vermont Public Radio’s Switchboard program raised a few eyebrows.

For starters, Jeffords, who opposes the war in Iraq, predicted the Bush administration would start a war in Iran to help elect a third member of the Bush clan to the White House.

“I think it was all done to get oil,” Jeffords said of invading Iraq. “And the loss of life that we had, and the cost of it, was to me just a re-election move, and they’re going to try to live off it. Probably start another war, wouldn’t be surprised, next year. Probably in Iran.”

“Do you think that’s likely?” VPR host Bob Kinzel asked.

“I probably shouldn’t even talk on it, I just feel so bitter about the thinking that’s gone on behind them, and the reasons they go to war and went to war,” Jeffords replied. “But I feel very strongly that they are looking ahead, and that there will be an opportunity to go into Iran and try to get their son elected president. I don’t know, but you do it each time they (are) going to have a new president. I’m very, very (Jeffords chuckles). Oh, well, I better be quiet.”

The part about being quiet was the only semi-intelligent thing he said.
