Conspiracy Theories From The Right

It certainly seems as though the right wing of the blogosphere will be kept quite busy over the next three-and-a-half weeks -- so little time, and so many Obama scandals to investigate!

Over at National Review Online's blog, The Corner, Mark Hemmingway suspects -- based on, um, nothing -- that Tony Rezko may be telling the feds about nefarious dealings with a bank where Illinois State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias once worked. And we care because? Because Giannoulias has connections to Barack Obama! Hemmingway concludes: "Maybe there's nothing there, but it's worth looking into right?" Um, right.

At American Thinker, Jack Cashill has another bombshell: he has proved conclusively -- well, not so much proved conclusively as made up in his head -- that Obama's memoir Dreams From My Father was not really penned by Obama but was secretly ghostwritten by William Ayers. (Best line of Cashill's essay: "In Obama's defense, he did grow up in Hawaii.") Hey, Cashill is nothing but fair -- lamenting, for instance, that Obama doesn't simply come forward with proof, rather than guarding his past "more zealously than Saddam did his nuclear secrets.  And I suspect, at the end of the day, we will pay an equally high price for Obama's concealment as Saddam's." So you see how high the stakes are!

The free world is presumably at stake when you have TOP OBAMA CAMPAIGN FINANCIER WORKING WITH STATE SPONSORS OF TERRORISM TO UNDERMINE U.S., as we are warned by Kristin Taylor at The article -- which is "heavily documented with supporting links," the author herself assures us, uncovers the secret link between Obama and the terrorists, who turns out to be a co-founder of Code Pink. The story "is very troubling for our nation," and yet one that "our news media refuses to investigate and report," Taylor says.

Oh, and I recently noted that nobody on the right was blaming the stock market collapse on investors' fears of an impending Obama Presidency. That only lasted a few hours; the ever-reliable Jonah Goldberg was the first one I saw pose the theory. But now we have the always entertaining editorial page of Investors Business Daily chiming in:

"Why has the market dropped so much?" everyone asks. What is it about the specter of our first socialist president and the end of capitalism as we know it that they don't understand?

Sadly, there is oh so much we don't understand. Thank goodness these folks will be keeping busy informing us!
