Penn & Teller on 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

Hot Air has an excerpt from Penn & Teller's "Bullsh*t" about the kooky whack jobs that insist that Dubya knew about/staged 9/11, the WTC was demolished by charges, United 93 was a sham, etc. While I've criticized P&T for cheating on their anti-death penalty show, they're generally spot-on and are so here.

I've encountered these conspiracists first-hand and they gave me the first glimpses of what full-blown Bush Derangement Syndrome looks like. When one asstackler posted that this was a result of the "coup by the Supreme Court" that put Dubya into office barely a half-hour after the towers fell, I knew that it was a special kind of insanity at work. While the nation looked on in shocked horror at the unknown thouands of innocents being killed, the unhinged's first thoughts were to spew their political grievances in typically selfish fashion.
