Land of the conspiracists

So, 43% of Americans still believe that Saddam Hussein is personally responsible for 9/11. Meanwhile, 36% suspect the U.S. government of either promoting the attacks or allowing it to go to completion on purpose, rather than out of incompetence.

Now what we need is a poll showing how much overlap there is between the two groups so that we can figure out what percentage of crazy our country is.

(BTW, it should be noted that my own husband is among those who, while not among the "the gummint planted the explosives in the basement" crowd, does think that something fishy has been going on. "Why were they playing war games featuring that exact scenario on the morning of the attacks?", he intoned darkly, "we don't know all there is to know about this yet."

Oh dear. I think I might have to restrict his consumption of Air America Radio.)
