You gots to love the crazy paranoid lefty idiot moron people:

Will there ever be another terrorist attack here? The experts say yes, and they're most likely right. When will it be? My guess: sometime next year, timed to draw the fearful closer to Mr. Bush and assure his re-election.

Well, for people that believe that Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks, this makes perfect sense. Why is it that the government is incompetent at everything except conspiracies?

I'm sure the neo-cons, the Mossad, and Fox News are together planning it as we speak. Look for CNN, the Eiffel tower, and Dominique de Villepin's poetry publisher to be the targets this time.

That's stupid. Everyone knows that Bush's plan is to cancel the elections after next year's terrorist attacks.

Elections? We all know the Patriot Act canceled the elections for next year. Right? I mean, those who such things never have actually read the legislation but, I mean, it's in there right?

I mean, Ashcroft is monitoring what we're reading. Right? G-men are all over our libraries checking what we read and checkout.

With loons like this publishing in the mainstream press, who needs fringe conspiracy theorists like Michael Rivero?

Sorenson: 'We invented "freedom fries" to show our contempt for the nation that made America possible in the 18th century.'

Three cheers for the frogs. They made America possible.

And don't insult their chips, neither.

I love the way Americans are supposed to be grateful for some rusty muskets and a temporary diversion of the French fleet over 200 years ago, but the French apparently have no reason to be grateful for being saved from the Nazis 50 years ago at the cost of tens of thousand American lives.

Harley Sorensen is a longtime journalist. His column appears Mondays.

Reuters must have filched all SFGate's scare quotes.
