Just A Coincidence

Think Progress reports that the timing of the Glenn Beck/Sarah Palin rally this weekend in Alaska on September 11 is just a coincidence and it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with trying to cash in on the anniversary of the attack.

Event promoter Christopher Cox says the 9/11 date is a coincidence. Cox originally eyed Sept. 4, but didn’t want to compete with the Alaska State Fair.

Right. And chickens need dental floss.

TP also notes that it was “just a coincidence” that Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” thing was on the anniversary of the “I Have a Dream” speech and the only reason that he did it at the Lincoln Memorial — the same site as the speech in 1963 — was because the parking lot of the Costco in Arlington was being used for an ice cream social by Lesbians for the Metric System.
