Ever since the 2000 presidential election, skeptics across
America have qualified their thoughts on current events with the
caveat, ?I?m not a conspiracy theorist, but . . .?
Buzzflash contributor Peggy Brunton is the latest
nonbeliever to postulate a series of unlikely coincidences that
could add up to a considerable political windfall. In her recent
Buzzflash commentary, Brunton examines the possibility
that the Supreme Court?s verdicts opposing anti-sodomy laws in
Texas and upholding affirmative action at the University of
Michigan are ?an early manifestation of the Bush campaign?s 2004
campaign strategy.? As outrageous as her theory may seem, her
arguments are compelling?especially the one about making Democrats
warning of ?the bogeyman of far-right Supreme Court domination?
appear ?foolishly alarmist.?
