This Tinfoil Is Giving Me a Headache

RFK, Jr. appeared on Neil Cavuto's show Monday to do some more ranting about how the Republicans stole the election. This is the Ohio edition of the tinfoil hat conspiracy theories, in case you are keeping track. Keith Obermann would have been proud. If you missed the interview, it is worth reading at Musing Minds or watching at Fox News or Expose the Left. Neil Cavuto was very respectful, but he did an excellent job pointing out the very obvious problems with Kennedy's theory. I know that the Republicans are supposed to be really worried about keeping their majorities in the House and Senate in the fall elections, as well they should be, but when so many on the other side of the aisle use their time and energy and media access to talk about stuff like this, it is hard for me, as a Republican, to keep from smiling.

Update: Regarding the "stuff like this" that I referred to above that many on the Left are wasting time and energy on, here is another example. (I included the wrong link in an earlier version of this post. It is fixed now.)

I mistakenly gave RFK, Jr. the title of congressman in one reference above, but have now corrected it. I told you the tinfoil was giving me a headache.

Try a couple of ibuprofen.

We NEED to have these well-known, "respected name" Democrats out there talking all this moonbat nonsense. Let the public see just how mentally unbalanced the average Democrat has become.

NO WAY the voters give them back the reins of power IF we keep the RFK Jr.'s front and center, with a platform and a loudspeaker.

The only thing more we could ask him to do for us is to run around on all fours and try to hump the dog, but I guess we'll have to wait for Uncle Ted for that . . .

Bill M:

Is/was RFK, Jr a Congressman? I think it's Patrick who's the Congressman, isn't it? Or was RFK, Jr a Congress-critter sometime in the past? I didn't find anything in a quick Google search other than obviously incorrect references to Patrick's recent trouble under Robert's name.

No, Bobby, Jr. has never held - or sought - elective office. He is an attorney who now concentrates on wacko environmentalism.

He got into this as a result of his conviction for heroin possession in 1984, from which he skated with community service. That ended up being working for the Hudson River Foundation as a lawyer. When the sentence was up, the Foundation hired Kennedy full-time, and he's been one of the leading watermelon environmentalist lawyers in the media ever since.

Steve Crickmore:

Tit for tat..RFK Junior may be perceived as a moon bat on this blog..but the two most prominent players in the purported Ohio voting fiasco were very partisan Republicans who have had their impartiality questioned ..Diehold founder Wally Diebold wrote in a fund raising letter he was committed "to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the President" and in a a highly attributed salon piece critical of Kennedy's thesis, by Farhad Manjoo, Manjoo does acknowdedge why many people have been suspicious of the voting process in the state... Kenneth Blackwell Ohio's right wing secretary of state, as Kennedy notes, "had broad powers to interpret and implement state and federal election laws, like Kathleen Harris -- setting standards for everything from the processing of voter registration to the conduct of official recounts. There is no argument that he used those powers for partisan gain. As Kennedy documents, in the months prior to the election, Blackwell issued a series of arbitrary and capricious voting and registration rules that could well have disenfranchised many people in the state".
Conservatives seem very sceptical of liberal biases but don't have a healthy scepticism, whether manipulating or cheating on elections isn't past some of their more outspoken and committed advocates when they are in a good position to do it.

Steve Crickmore:

Excuse me, Diebold's founder is Wally O'Dell..I will add that whether there are enough abuses in Democratic states to counter abuses in Rebuplican states to make the national election more or less fair..seems a pretty crude way to decide the winner and gives us endless and not very useful conjecture, that only diminishes the winners and losers.

Brian Knowles:

I do think it's bad form to interview any Kennedy when the issue of death tax is before Congress. If not for inheritance, the whole lot would have to get jobs, and I'm not likely the first to notice that...
