I don’t believe in those mass conspiracy theories, but something strange is going on. Conservatives suppressing the truth is nothing new. Why they decided to bury this report is obvious. It simply doesn’t conform to their world view. Tax rates for the rich have no relation to overall economic growth. This was a no-brainer, but millions of Americans where suckered by the GOP who sold this as fact.
The largest progressive blog has been down most of the day. Now, I go to the Daily Kos about once or twice a day. I have done so for years. I don’t remember its being down for anything but maintenance. Crashed? All day? Just before a big election? Something is up. (BTW, the Daily Kos is based in California and not on the East Coast.)
Another progressive blog, Crooks and Liars, is down. This isn’t good. I don’t know what craziness has been pulled. I wouldn’t think that conservatives… wound hack… yes, they would. Something strange is going on. This may turn out to be something very explainable. Then again…
