A Different Kind of Conspiracy Theorist

It just occurred to me that there might be a different kind of conspiracy theorist than the ones we read about. First there are the conspirators. Those who engage in conspiracy. Then there are the conspiracy theorists. Those who make up wild stories about supposed conspiracies, but who have little or no evidence readily available.

A different kind of conspiracy theorist would be one who takes the truth [of a real conspiracy - edit 12-07-07] and twists it so that it appears like a mere theory, one that looks bogus enough that nobody will believe it, and makes anybody who does believe it look foolish.

  1. The mainstream media actually bought the WMD line about Iraq, and now "regrets" that they were deceived and didn't investigate the Administration's claims more thoroughly.
