I’ll give you a hint who the right thinks really gassed the Syrians. It’s tall and black and rhymes with Llama:
MotherJones — In summary: the Syrian opposition carried out the chemical attack, and they did it with the foreknowledge of the United States. Or maybe even worse: perhaps the United States actively coordinated the whole thing. As one eager Dittohead put it, “RUSH LIMBAUGH SAYS ADOLF OBAMA BEHIND NERVE GASSING OF SYRIANS!!!” That’s an exaggeration, of course. Rush is just saying it’s “a very possible scenario.” Like Hillary Clinton’s murder of Vince Foster. This story hasn’t produced a flashing red siren from Drudge yet, so I suppose it doesn’t quite count as the fever swamp’s latest pet theory. But I imagine that’s coming soon.
In related news, my right-wing haven’t yet gone all in and agreed Obama did this. But they have developed a consensus on how to judge the voting ahead on a military strike against Assad. It goes something like this: if a Democrat was right about Iraq by voting against it, then they’re wrong if they vote to attack Syria. But if a Republican was wrong about Iraq and they vote against attacking Assad, that’s evidence they are right about Syria.
Or a similar version, if a Democrat correctly voted against invading Iraq, they’re not allowed to vote to attack any country ever again in any way, for any reason …?
You can’t make this stuff up.
