Kane Watch: It all makes sense now

It's no wonder Eugene Kane came flying to Kevin Barrett's defense. If you read Kane's latest conspiracy theory, you'll understand why it's so important for him to uphold one's right to blather on and on with little regard for common sense.

Nick Schweitzer sums it up best with:

So according to his theory, one oil company is just kind enough to sabotage
its facilities so that all its competitors can make more money from the ensuing
rise in gas prices, while it makes less money since it has less oil to
sell. How do you envision this working Eugene? Did all the big oil
execs go to a nice hotel in the Caribbean and draw lots to see who got
to take one for the team?

I'm guessing that nowhere in the job description for Journal Sentinel Columnist does the line, "Has a strong grasp of common sense" appear does it?

Kane also makes the claim in his post that...

...if we EVER elect a president - and vice president - with such close ties to
the oil companies again, the entire country should have its collective head

Good advice, and something we should take under consideration when casting votes for the likes of Hillary Clinton or Jim Doyle. After all, lawyers have historically had reputations right up there with big oil executives.

You know, I kind of think that Kane is defending Barrett's right to spew garbage to his class of college students because Kane realizes that if one of his students at UWM actually spoke up, Kane might easily be in the same situation?
