Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I must be a conspiracy theorist too because pretty much everything you wrote makes sense to me.  

Funny you mention Clinton - I jumped in to the FDL Book Salon w/Jane Mayer and she eventially replied (in response to another question).  She wrote a great book but I thought she somewhat glossed over the previous administration.  Maybe I'm being a nitpicker but that's the kind of detail the right will seize on and say "see! it's all political!"  We have to be willing to call out anyone who's doing it.

OTOH, if you call out Clinton, the repugs will just say "see! Everybody does it!"

I suppose which strategy to choose depends on whether you're in the "lesser evil" school or in the "Chthulhu/Hastur" school.
