I feel the pull of the "Vast Left-Wing Conspiracy" theory as well, but it is worth resisting. If we subscribe to that idea, besides proving ourselves as nutty as the Sheehan-esque moonbats, we drop blinkers and faulty filters over our eyes.

I have always been worried about how easy it is to fall into the "vast conspiracy" trap. It is obvious that the Left is in love with such thinking, but I would hope that we Righties/Republicans/Conservatives/etc. would be wary of falling into that trap.

However, the kind of targeted, politically-motivated leaking that we have seen with regards to Ms. McCarthy seems to be mostly typical of lefties, in general. I do not think that it is some kind of "conspiracy." Instead, it seems that this is considered in Leftist meta-philosophy to be an acceptable way to sabotage the other side. Thus, it is acceptable for her to leak this information; it is acceptable for ex-Ambassador Wilson to lie about his role and findings in the Nigerian yellowcake scenario; it is acceptable for the MSM to publish opinion pieces that are labelled as news, and so on; because it is all in services of a "greater good," a sort of perverse Machiavellianism. Of course, there is no clear purpose for all of their maneuvering except the acquisition of power for themselves and their Leftist allies.
