Pride: Pot ... Kettle ... Black

It seems a small bit of reality has seeped into the "Reality Based Community" over at dKos.

Sounds like a good start:

I made a mass banning of people perpetuating a series of bizarre, off-the-wall, unsupported and frankly embarassing conspiracy theories.
But, (there is always a "but") kos quickly steps away from the precipice of sanity in an update:
I've been reinstating some of the banned accounts as they email me. Some people wondered why there wasn't any warning. There have been warnings from others -- repeated pleadings for people to ground themselves in reality.
I wonder if this comment changed his mind?
Who decides which conspiracy theories (4.00 / 46)

are acceptable?

The American people were lied to repeatedly in order to go to war against Iraq. Conspiracy theory? Nope, fact.

The growth of paperless voting machines along with partisan election maneuvering has made recent election results highly dubious. Fact. (and by the way, how further are we in the fight to get paper trail voting? .... thought so. Fraudsters were told to "Go away. We have plenty of time. Nothin to see in Ohio. Move along.")

Pearl Harbor?

Lee Harvey Oswald?

Don't know enough about either of the last two to decide either way. That's up to the individual.

I dunno. There was a bunch of other legitimate "conspiracy theories" that a guy listed in a diary yesterday that were in actuality highly debatable/likely with many elements of truth and people falling on both sides. But I can't find the diary anymore because it has been deleted.
Maybe this guy should be banned under the new "Reality Based" dKos guidelines...

Welcome to the Twilight Zone of the left...

Via Jeff, who wonders if kos (Markos Moulitsas "Screw Them" Zuniga) should ban himself. Its only fair...
