THE OLIVER STONE WING OF THE DNC: The Washington Times has a nice roundup of some of the conspiracy theories blowing through the Democratic Party, as espoused by supposedly serious people, such as former secretary of state Madeleine Albright and leading Democratic presidential candidate, Howard Dean. The article quotes Donna Brazile, who ran Al Gore’s presidential campaign in 2000, who understands the danger of these wild rumors and innuendo:

[Brazile] said the comments of Mrs. Albright and Mr. Dean and Mr. McDermott have “no place in our dialogue on this very serious issue. I think most Americans have some lingering doubts about what happened on September 11, but until the commission and Congress completes its investigation, I think it best if people hold these views to themselves. But because we don’t yet have a nominee, it’s all out in the open.”

And having all these Oliver Stone and X-File conspiracy theories risks, as one unnamed Democrat is quoted as saying, the party drifting out of the “mainstream.”
