GOP STALKS OKC

It's the love affair that won't die -- Republicans insisting that the Oklahoma City bombing was the work of Arab terrorists. That Tim McVeigh guy? A patsy, just like Lee Harvey Oswald.

A California congressman wants a federal investigation into OKC. World Net Daily reports it this way:
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., is calling for a congressional investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing because of evidence of a foreign connection and a conspiracy broader than Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. In a memo written to Rep. Henry Hyde, chairman of the House International Relations Committee, Rohrabacher said he has spent 12 months personally investigating the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building that killed 168 and concluded "there is ample evidence to justify an investigative hearing into this historic crime." The focus of the probe, he suggests, should be "Was there a foreign connection to the Oklahoma City bombing?"
Why does the GOP have such a hard-on for OKC? Remember, Bill Clinton was in office, and after McVeigh was arrested Clinton decried the rise of right-wing hate speech on talk radio.

The right won't forget it. The right can't forget it.

Funny, I listened to Rush back in those days, and I never blew up a building... that's like saying "rock lyrics make kids commit suicide" (Tipper Gore).

Crap. Utter crap. Whatever drove McVeigh over the edge, was already lodged in his fevered noggin, long before he did the deed. Prolly the same kind of horrid cranial miswiring similar to our buddy down in Aurora-way...

Addendum:

Tipper may not herself have spoken those words, but people like her did. Go to:

and read the transcript from Frank Zappa's PMRC hearing testimony. Those wacky Washington Wives were a lot o' fun back in the day!
