A few weeks ago, I told you HERE about the controversy over the scheduled telecast of a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden.
The flick will run on the National Geographic Channel two days before next month’s presidential election.
Here’s a trailer for the film:
Right-wingers upset that movie about death of Bin Laden will air on TV just before November election
There’s a fuss in the right-wing blogosphere this morning (see HERE, for example) over news that a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden will air on the National Geographic Channel two days before the presidential election.
The flick at issue, which is expected to be complimentary to President Obama, is being distributed by a company owned by a major financial backer of Obama’s re-election campaign.
But the people who are outraged about this matter are ignoring one little factor: The National Geographic Channel is owned by the same company that owns Fox News Channel, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post …
Limbaugh theorizes that al-Qaeda allowed for bin Laden to be killed — to help Obama’s re-election chances
Yes, you read that headline right.
And only the knuckle-draggers who see El Rushbo as their political guru would believe such nonsense.
The story is HERE:
As far as conspiracy theories go this is pretty far out there, and the reason Rush Limbaugh and his ilk on hate radio are sounding increasingly unhinged is because they’re running out of ideas.
All of their usual rhetoric has been exhausted or disproven if for no other reason than the passage of time and the absence of the apocalypse, so to maintain a conversation they turn to conspiracy.
Just when you think you’d heard it all, you come across something like this:
[T]here are a substantial number of voters in both Ohio and North Carolina who believe that Mitt Romney is responsible for killing Osama bin Laden. Seriously.

Phony outrage from the right over word that Obama delayed mission to get Bin Laden on advice of aides
The right-wing blogosphere is waxing apoplectic today over a “bombshell scoop” and “stunning revelation” to the effect that “President Barack Obama canceled the operation to kill Osama bin Laden on three separate occasions before finally approving the May 2, 2011 Navy SEAL mission.”
Wow! Grounds for impeachment? Nah!
Charles Johnson puts this nonsense IN PERSPECTIVE:
Don’t we want a President to plan carefully and consult with advisers in such an important matter? Would the wingnuts prefer we just send in the SEALS with guns blazing, regardless of the conditions, wild west-style?
