The left in America never ceases to find ways to make themselves look like assholes. 9/11? It was an "inside job," despite their having no evidence of anything of the sort. Flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania, was "shot down by a missile," although no military planes were near it. Some leftwing retards even claim that no planes were used on 9/11. Hand puppets struck the WTC towers, right?
Leave it to the dumb Left to find a conspiracy in another tragedy. NY Yankee pitcher Cory Lidle's private plane crashed into a building in New York City, killing Lidle and his flying instructor. An accident, everyone says.
But not the Left! We found one moron who believes that the crash was a "Neocon plot" to get the Mark Foley scandal off the front pages. (The North Korean nuclear explosion did that too, but perhaps George W. Bush was behind that, too.)
You just cannot make this shit up.
Fox News Spins Plane Accident; Says It Could Affect Election
The hysterical media circus that grew in the hours following an accident in which a baseball star who wasn't properly qualified flew a small plane into a Manhattan apartment block was crystallized by Fox News' Neil Cavuto - who bizarrely put the pilot error of the Yankees' Cory Lidle into the context of how it would affect the upcoming mid-term elections.
The FBI and Homeland Security are now labeling a small aircraft hitting an apartment building on Manhattan's Upper East Side at 72nd Street and York Avenue, as an accident.
On Fox News' Your World With Neil Cavuto, Cavuto suggested during a conversation with Republican Congressman Peter King that the event would possibly affect the upcoming mid-term election by reminding Americans of the horror of 9/11.
It has now been reported that the pilot of the plane was New York Yankees baseball star Cory Lidle. The fact that the accident involves a celebrity means the networks can justifiably talk about it for another three weeks and in that sense - invoking memories of 9/11 - it could impact the election.
The event also knocks stories about Mark Foley and Washington pedophile and prostitution rings off the top off the news cycle.
Yep - those e-mails Foley sent are now "pedophile and prostitution rings."
But, check out this paranoia from the clueless Left:
Reports that Lidle's passport was found on the street is also being seen as suspicious by some 9/11 truthers - because it would seemingly prop up the inconceivable notion that Mohammed Atta and other hijacker's passports survived and were discovered. However, in the case of Lidle this could easily be explained by eyewitness reports that most of the plane debris did not enter the building and ended up on the street below. This is how investigators have already been able to identify the plane in just the short time after the crash.
Early reports that the crash involved a helicopter have now been dismissed. The FBI have confirmed two people are dead but say there is no "indication of terrorism."
"The initial indication is that there is a terrible accident," said Department of Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke.
Obviously one of the following explanations will be offered as to what happened - either Lidle was hopped up on a cocktail of drugs, was drunk, wanted to commit suicide, wanted to impress his friends, or the foggy conditions simply contributed to pilot error.
NBC reports that Lidle was "not instrument rated to fly the plane and could only fly when visibility was good."
News networks reported that President Bush immediately ordered NORAD to defend the city of New York and other major cities. Whatever the nature of this incident, Bush is getting an opportunity to grandstand - and his Neo-Con mouthpieces at Fox News are rolling around in the hysteria like pigs in shit.
It is always hilarious to read the Left's take on the news.
