It's not my fault!

joel_rosenberg was talking about the twin scourges of BDS/CDS and in the comments we touched on the nutroots' & wingnuts' assassination conspiracy theories.

Which brought to mind the odd phone call I got from my ex when Paul Wellstone's plane went down. We'd been separated a while by then, but the papers hadn't ground their way through the courts yet, so there were occasional calls about this and that. On this occasion, she called me to pass on the news that Wellstone's plane had crashed. "I didn't do it," I replied. "That's not funny!" she snapped, and hung up.

Well, as a well-trained member of the VRWC, what else was I going to say?
