Jeff Goldstein really should be performing with a brick wall in the background:

Still, I think there are certain elements of an actual conspiracy here that shouldn’t be overlooked — most specifically, a kind of institutional willingness to repeat each other’s debunked stories in an effort to turn certain narratives, through repetition, into received truths.

This, of course, was posted shortly before Goldstein insisted that the war in Iraq is one in which “commitment and will are the deciding factors,” and argued for the 493rd time that “the rhetorical aims of the anti-war camp reveal themselves in such a way that they overlap, intentionally or not, with the rhetorical strategies used by al Qaeda in its propaganda war against western hawks.”

If not for endless, baseless repetition, I’m not sure your average wingnut blog would have any narrative at all.
