Tomorrow’s Conspiracy Theory Today

TOMORROW’S CONSPIRACY THEORY TODAY….Barack Obama’s campaign plane had a serious problem landing in St. Louis last night:

An inflatable slide in the tail cone of the plane had deployed, making control of the plane tough. “There are hydraulic lines back there,” Rosenker says. ‘There are control cables that deal with the elevators and other area’s of control surfaces for the aircraft, and could potentially make it extremely difficult if not impossible to fly the aircraft.”

….This was not Obama’s regular campaign plane, which is being overhauled. It was a loaner, having previously been used by Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY.

Oh, great. The Hillary conspiracy crowd is going to go nuts over this. It will probably be only a few hours before Drudge reports that Hillary and Bill were seen last month sneaking around the hangar with wrenches in their hands.
