For the last few decades most White House correspondents have acted like blow-dried stenographers. Not all of them lobbed softballs like the once literal and later figurative fluffer Jeff Gannon, but for the most part, they've been meek.
One notable difference was now-retired Helen Thomas. Unfortunately, the White House press corps has been so relentlessly gullible that Thomas' willingness to express skepticism openly distinguished her, even though nine-tenths of her skepticism was expressed in the form of stupid, naked partisan aggression of the sort you'd expect in a YouTube comment thread.
Thomas quit after she said what she thought — that Israelis (read: Jews) should "get the hell out of Palestine" and "go home." She apologized. But she didn't mean it. Now she says that she stands by saying that Jews should "go home," and in speaking to an Arab-American group, says that Zionists (read: Jews) control Washington with money:
"Congress, the White House and Hollywood, Wall Street are owned by the Zionists. No question, in my opinion," Thomas, 90, told an audience of about 300 during a workshop on anti-Arab bias. "They put their money where their mouth is . . . We're being pushed into a wrong direction in every way."
Gosh, we've never heard anything like that before.
Now, I grant you, it may not be reasonable to expect enlightened ethnic and religious views from someone who's been reduced to an extra in The Dark Crystal at this point.
The notion that the Jews control Washington with money is not a new one.
What's new, perhaps, is the prevalence of people equally nuts as Helen Thomas.
Those people help us piece together the other elements of The Conspiracy.
1. Helen Thomas tells us that Jews control Washington and Hollywood with money.
3. Eugene Delgadio, Republican member of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, reveals to us that the TSA's pat-down procedure is a initiative of the Homosexual Agenda.
4. Minister Bradlee Dean of You Can Run But You Cannot Hide International reveals that the Homosexual Agenda seeks to implement Sharia Law in America.
The Goldfish Fanciers may or may not be involved.
Therefore, by piecing together information from the media, the Obama Administration, Helen Thomas, Eugene Delgadio, and Bradlee Dean, we can surmise that the Jews are using the Homosexuals to control Washington and Hollywood to cause them to use the TSA to impose Sharia Law, handing victory to the Islamic Extremists. Nominally the TSA and the Jews oppose Islamic Extremism, but conspiracies are funny that way. There are wheels within wheels. Jewish wheels.
Now and then I despair that Americans pay attention to Dancing with the Stars and not to politics. Then I look at American politics. Is dancing really so bad?
