Falsifiability Etc.

CJR has a nice summary of the ostensible pay-for-play scandal surrounding The Daily Kos. In a way this reminds me of the hubbub surrounding the design of the 9/11 memorial. Again, when evaluating cases such as these that are built around coincidence and circumstantial evidence you have to examine whether the claim is falsifiable or not. As James Joyner is quoted as saying, there's really not much to the story that can't be plausibly explained as coincidence. In which case it would probably be wise for someone to explain the whole Mark Warner anomaly, as a non-financial explanation would serve to discredit the overall conspiracy theory.
