Conspiracy theories depend on the perpetrators being endlessly clever, but you'll find the facts also work if you assume everyone is endlessly stupid.
Strange Coincidence? Vandersloot mouthpiece has Sunday Op-Ed that Craig's out in '08
Mike Adams, local Idaho Falls GOP gadfly & sometime mouthpiece for Frank Vandersloot, GOP homophobe & multi-level millionaire, has an interesting op-ed in this Sunday's Post Register.
Adams, a former radio-station owner who advised Mr.V in his purchase last year of 6 stations, bluntly asserts that Larry Craig will not be running in '08, and then uses the rest of his column to tout 6 unknown undesirables, like wingnut real estate crook Stan Hawkins, or Senator Robert Geddes, the oracle of Soda Springs. Geddes, you may remember wanted to hot-rack Idaho prisoners to save money. (where do we get these looney-tunes?)
Adams does mention Risch & Simpson, but knowing 'Big-Mouth Mike' as he's known in Idaho Falls, his real desire is to tout those who're socially obscure, with fealty to Vandersloot.
I find it a very, very strange coincidence this op-ed is now appearing. Especially since Vandersloot, who's always been a big Larry Craig supporter in years gone by, and is a big insider in the Idaho GOP, is so close to the action.
