Conspiracy Theorists

In a comment to this Atrios post, one Eli Schwarzbaum writes:
It seems pretty clear from the frequency of these horrendous attacks that this is centrally organized. I wouldn't be surprised if Cheney, Bush, or Ashcroft is behind this, or at least turning a blind eye. They hate the fact that non-whites are admitted to their beloved Yale. It just gives me the shivers that such powerful men would stoop to writing nasty comments on dorm room doors, but this is the state of country now. Tragic.

That has to be the funniest thing I've read all day. I don't normally stop by Eschaton to relax, as I often get frustrated after a visit (I stop by the iranian girl or a non-political site for relaxation), but this guy's so far gone that he's become just plain silly. The Vice President is creeping around Yale, due to his absolute hatred of non-whites (umm where did that come from? oh, right, any support for America is an indicator of racism), and looking for unpatriotic things that he can scrawl angry messages on. Because he's got nothing better to do, and "this is the state of the country now." (Is it just me, or is this guy really overinflating the focus of the country on Yale undergrads? Like paranoid people, who have a seriously flawed sense of their own self-importance -- you have to think you're something real special if you think 40,000 people are stalking you and conspiring to thwart your every mood. That's just Yale for you, I guess (yes, and Harvard too) -- you get told you're the best school, and you over-believe it until you're thinking you're the best anything, and the most important people anywhere, and, even if you're a sophmore Italian lit major, the government is keeping tabs on you because you control the world.)
