Yeah Taibbi, you're so brilliant. Twenty eight pages that they won't release to the public, including evidence of "foreign governments" assisting alleged 9/11 hijackers (Bob Graham), is just waiting for some good penis joke angle to make it sing.
You're worse than a shill. You're an imbecile spreading stupidity as far and wide as you possibly can.
Matt Taibbi Bio:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Matthew C. Taibbi (born February 3, 1970), an American journalist and political writer. He currently works at Rolling Stone where he authors a column called "Road Rage" for the print version, and an additional weekly online-only column called "The Low Post".

For all American politicians in general, how much of their religious faith is real, and how much is for the votes? - Name Withheld
I think Bush's is real. Gary Bauer's is real, so is Santorum's. The rest are all completely full of shit. ...
... I should say that the hardest thing for me in dealing with the Truthers is this feeling of being intimidated by how ridiculous they are. It would take a comic genius to really do them justice and the fear of falling short of that can be paralyzing. If you've ever seen the movie Eating Raoul there's this scene where Paul Bland throws an electric bug-zapper into a hot tub full of swingers and they all just sort of fall naked and limp all at once. It's hilarious. Somebody, and it may very well not be me, is going to write the electric bug-zapper of 9/11-debunker essays. But it's going to have to be an inspired effort, not something you just toss off in one night. I really wish Mark Twain were alive for that reason. A Jim Fetzer's Literary Offenses would potentially be one of the funniest things ever written in the English language.
