So, what is this "Black Sky Theory" you've been hearing so much about? If you're a skeet shooter, or a duck hunter, or if you're manning an anti-aircraft gun, you know it's easy to focus on a single, solitary target, silhouetted against the sky. If another target should appear, your attention is somewhat divided, but your task remains possible. But imagine a sky so full of targets that they overlap, completely obscuring the heavenly canopy.
That's the Republican plan. Iraq, Katrina, de Lay, Jeff Gannon, Abu Ghraib, Abramoff, Halliburton, Plamegate, poker and whores, creationism, dispensationalism, the Vice President shot an old geezer in the face, gay marriage, flag burning, "privatizing" Social Security, tax breaks for outsourcing American jobs....
So many targets, blackening the sky. The CCCP (Corporate Controlled Conservative Press) has agreed to pretend that it's simply dark out.
Me, I think it's their master plan...the Black Sky Theory.
