Better to be a "shit-bag conspiracy theorist" than believe Bush's lies
Eight days ago I started an exchange with Howard Owens about escalating the current war with Iraq. At one point I said I didn't believe much of anything the George W. Bush administration has to say about the "war on terror." Owens responded by "labeling me shit-bag conspiracy theorist" and implying that lack of trust in Team Bush meant I believe anything said by Saddam Hussein. "[Y]you seem to believe whatever leftist crap some Hollywood star feeds you," Owens also said even though the matter of entertainers being against some aspect or another of the drive to escalate the war with Iraq had previously not been brought up. It was clear that Owens couldn't deal with real arguments but only with logic at about the level of Bush's pronouncements.
