Could this be the dumbest woman in America? I think it's possible after seeing a clip (hat tip to http://www.realclearpolitics.com/) of Whoopi Goldberg on "The View" this morning, questioning whether the moon landing actually happened, or had been faked in a movie studio.
She said she has "real questions as to whether the moonwalk actually happened," citing the "rippling flag" as evidence of possible fakery.
Her stupidity speaks for itself, and it seems to be contagious among Hollywood types. Director Oliver Stone swallowed whole the insane, criminal behavior of Jim Garrison and turned it into the movie "JFK." Charlie Sheen - whose acting I love - is on record saying that the World Trade Center was brought down by a "controlled demolition."
In the academic world - where science and reason should triumph - there's a kook UMD profressor that has "proof" that Paul Wellstone's plane was shot down on orders from the White House.
What I always find interesting about liberal nutjobs is that they'll believe any far-out conspiracy theory, but yet they will accept, without even blinking, the idea of man-made global warming, which is quickly being exposed as one of the tallest piles of BS ever put forth.
Here's a clip of Buzz Aldren dealing with a moon landing skeptic. It would be great if he could give Whoopi the same "explanation."
