I’ll just take it for granted that some idiot leftists will decide that John McCain’s presence in Memphis today on the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King is a really deeply-coded appeal to racists. Your challenge: guess their rationale in the comments. Bonus points if you can work in the concept of James Earl Ray not being the lone gunman/involved in a conspiracy/also being the shooter in both Kennedy assassinations and making Ted run off the road at Chappaquiddick. Super bonus points if you can somehow tie Hillary Clinton’s simultaneous presence in the same city to a plan orchestrated by The Man to make Barack Obama look bad.

As I type this, the reCAPTCHA prompt is totally insane.

Obviously, McCain is going to Memphis in a coded appeal to Southern whites to honor the sacrifices James Earl Ray made for his country. Contrary to your suggestions, McCain isn’t going to say that there was a grand conspiracy behind King’s assassination, just the work of a great man with the courage to change the world for the better. Cough.
